    Rat Pack "Clan version" is in constant rotation among my playlists. I'm especially fan of Dean Martin.

    What's your take on Kogan playing Paganini?

    Don't believe I've heard it mate. Would you care to post some here? I'd love to give it a listen!

    Liking the Gene McKown track and that's a great one from Wanda too.

    I continued on my path of album discovery and will post more later. Meanwhile, here's two songs that make me sticky:

    One of my motivations for starting this thread was because I was working on expanding this list as far back as possible: My Favourite Albums by Year. Originally it only reached back to 1966, but now with another 11 additions it's back to 1955. Don't look too closely at some of the newer stuff on the list.

    Album pickings get even slimmer in 1954. If I do find any I like from that year, they'll be ones not on RYM yet and requiring more effort to track down. Kay Thompson has an album from that year which could be a winner:

    Recently went on a journey through some older music. Love all of these, a lot of nostalgic attachment.

    This song has been stuck in my head all day, had to dig out the LP. Used to listen to Gene Vincent's first album so much in my teens, here's a few other choice cuts:

    Somewhere I have a Gene Vincent cassette I got from a sale bin when I was a kid because it had Roll Over Beethoven on it, and I was disappointed that it wasn't the version of the song from the film Beethoven. I was yet to understand the concept of multiple artists releasing covers of the same song.

    Surprisingly after almost giving up, I managed to find albums I like from '52 & '53 respectively. The Pearl Bailey album was on the wrong year in RYM which didn't help. Albums get a bit different at this point. Both are shorter 10" releases where every track was also released as an A or B-side, so that's good for consistency. I'm still liking the album format as a way for this stuff to grow on me, as opposed to liking one song and then not finding where to go next with an artist, or slogging through a more varied 2CD best of.





    1951 might be the year that finally defeats my album pursuit, but if not then I can keep going back as Pearl also has one from 1950 I could get into:

    Since I found this from 1951, now I've been exploring back further. Here's a bunch of stuff mostly from the 40s:



    I kinda love this, sounds like Beryl stopped giving a fuck near the end of the recording session and was just getting it over and done with:






    Harry Partch's earliest recordings are wild:

    Took a couple of listens but Fats Waller grew on me somewhat:





    A couple of others I should've added to the thread by now:

    Some more Julie London because she rules, or at least ruled. Her first 9 albums plus Julie...At Home and Latin in a Satin Mood are the good stuff. The later stuff where she's backed by an orchestra or big band just seems wrong, with her seductive voice being perfect for a minimal jazz combo in a smoky dive bar.
