Mid Century Minx – Various Artists

Catalogue No: CR9005  Release Date: 12/05/2014

Imagine if Jessica Rabbit and Joan Holloway made an album! This seductive selection of breathy female vocals highlights many of the forgotten names of the 50s and 60s who, given a break, could have been Peggy Lee or Julie London. As curved and comfortable as a mid-century modern sofa.

First time on CD for the majority of these tracks.  Will appeal to fans of Mad Men and rock’n’roll alike.

The perfect after-hours album for 50s fans.  Features backing from great jazz musicians like Quincy Jones, Barney Kessel and Gil Evans

Beautiful artwork featuring reproductions of many of the original beautiful album covers.
