Editorial Reviews

The classic brother/sister duo, actors, top session musicans and hitmakers with the oldies radio staple "Deep Purple" (and yes, that record *was* the inspiration for the celebrated rockers' name!) and many more A vital brick in Phil Spector's infamous Wall Of Sound, Nino and April continued making impressionistic, Spectoresque records well into the 1960's...their switch from Atco to adventurous LA indie label White Whale seemingly freeing up their creativity no end.....utilising Nino's jazz chops and consummate songwriting and April's torchy, intimate vocals, which speak right to the....um...heart of a young man, to best advantage...in their unique counterpoint style...in this (kind of!) missing link between Spectorsound and the emerging psychy softpop....classic stuff.....and a listening treat!

The brother and sister act of Nino Tempo and April Stevens are best known for their Grammy-winning remakes of old standards ("Deep Purple") during their stint at Atco records in the early 60's. Both also had some chart success individually before and after their Atco hits.

This CD presents their material from their recordings at White Whale records during 1966 and 1967. Included here is their "All Strung Out" album with some additional bonus track singles. Though less commercially successful, this material presents Nino and April at their best. Their counterpoint voices, Nino's writing and his Spector-influenced production yield some incredibly musically sophisticated pop recordings. While "All Strung Out" and "I Can't Go On Living" were their two top-100 chart successes, "The Habit Of Loving You" is a Spectorian triumph. Rounding out the album are tracks of diverse styles, all handled superbly by Nino and April.

Sound quality is excellent with all tracks in stereo except 11 and 13-16 although there is some notable distortion on track 16. Liner notes, while brief, provide some background of the pair's work at White Whale.

This is a top-notch pop production for an extremely talented pair whose recognition was far less than their talent. For Nino and April fans, Varese Vintage also offers a Nino and April compilation CD (which see) that includes their Atco as well as White Whale sides. And, going even further, in 2011, Ace Records of the U.K. issued a superb career retrospective on Nino and April that is well worth consideration.

Format: Audio CD
Having lost some momentum from their smash 1963 #1 'Deep Purple', Nino and April reinvented themselves when they signed on to White Whale in 1967. The title song had been offered to the Righteous Brothers, and when they passed on it, Nino took the helm, and arranged it for he and April, calling on his experience working with Phil Spector in the Philles heyday. What a lucky break for us. This CD presents 3 lush wall-of-sound arrangements, backing the perfect blend of these siblings' voices. Also included are some contemporary rock arrangements, a couple of 'covers', and a couple of their trademark reworkings of tin pan alley standards . At his best, Nino is one of the most versatile singers in pop, whipping his voice around the octaves with amazing accuracy. April purrs, then scolds, then soars, as always a mistress of style. The melodies and arrangements recall the Monkees, John Phillips, Spector, and other styles that will seem vaguely familiar, and exemplify the era in pop. Budding writers David Gates and Warren Zevon each provide one song. The 4 bonus cuts include the expansive, knockout brass arrangement of 'Ohh Poo Pa Doo', which has long begged for the attention it deserved as a single in '68. The only reason this is not a 5-star review is the missing stereo mixes of a few of the cuts, but the decision to add the singles in the cleanest form available is a worthy one. An absolute must for late '60s popmusic fans!

Prior to signing on with White Whale Records, Nino and April were basically a fairly decent duo specializing in easy listening music. These earlier tracks were a blend of enjoyable tunes and simpering retoolings of much older standards. This CD, "All Strung Out" focuses on the duo's later releases, and the improvement is obvious. The diversity of selections reveals the talent and versatility of which Nino and April were capable. The best tracks are the "Wall of Sound style" songs: "All Strung Out," "The Habit of Lovin' You Baby" (which sounds like "Barry Manilow Meets The Walker Brothers," but it works extremely well) and "You'll Be Needing Me, Baby." April also does an excellent cover of Bobby Hebb's "Sunny." In short, a highly recommended CD!

I purchased the CD for one song only... 'All Strung Out.' It was a song on a 45 rpm that I played when I was a lot younger, in fact I played it so much long ago, I wore the 45 out.

When I played this CD I found several other songs that were very enjoyable. This was much to my surprise! I create my own personal CD's of 'Oldies' that I like... playing them in the car and elsewhere. Three of the songs from this CD album will be included on my next CD compilation.

I rate it 3.5 to 4 stars. It was worth the purchase for me.
