Editorial Reviews

Eydie's #22 charting album from 1963 remains one of American pop music's great adaptations of the bossa nova sound. Includes two bonus tracks recorded with Luis Bonfa!

Sob! Am I really the only one who wants Eydie Gorme on CD? NO! There's lots of us out there - all over the globe. Blame It On The Bossa Nova? It's class pop music from one of America's classiest popular vocalists. And is this little bit of heaven made readily available to a wide range of music fans? NO! You rotters...
P.S. If any record company exec's get the message - please could you get together Eydie's other great pop hits from 1963, the lovely Everybody Go Home, the super Don't Fight It and the smoochy I Wanna Stay Here.
Other record companies do it for other stars of that era (Bobby Vee, Nat 'King' Cole et al) why can't you?

During this period of pop music, Eydie Gorme was the most versatile of pop singers. Her Columbia period & that just before were all genre-themed albums. Her 1st on Columbia, BLAME IT ON THE BOSSA NOVA, was her only jazz venture. The title tune which was her biggest comemrcial hit, 11 other jazz styled tracks , & 2 bonus Bossa Nova tracks compose this cd.. That title tune was fun, arty & as nuanced & off keyed as any Peggy Lee. Whatever the instrument is in the song's middle, it works just fine! The cd sound, which makes E.G.'s voice sound richer, is better than the lp sound. I can't think of any other singer who did more to make her voice so different to fit the respective material. I stated that Jo Stafford was the most verstatile of singers. Well, then, Eydie Gorme took ovet the honor followed by Linda Ronstadt. With today's music, who knows & who cares! Still, Linda did not change her voice as much as she did genres; Eydie & Jo could make their voices sound different. During Eydie's period, her big selling Blame It On Bossa Nova & Grammy winning If He Walked Into My Life were the farthest vocal stretch in pop music. In the BLAME IT ON BOSSA NOVA opener, One Not Samba, Gorme strays very far from that note. Paradoxically, she sings every note on key. Eydie starts & ends with that glorious high note & scats so well Ella must have cringed! In Dansero, Eydie sings the same line off & on key to give stylistic & artistic effects to the same feeling of love.Read more ›

I have loved Eydie Gorme's singing ever since i first heard her on the radio back in the sixties on a song called, "Blame It On The Bossa Nova"! I still love the song . . . i still find myself singing that song . . . and i still listen to the recording of that song by "the voice": Ms Eydie Gorme! (As you listen to her rfecording of this song you can "hear" her smiling . . .and she makes you smile along too!)

THe original LP was recorded at the beginning of the "Bossa Nova" craze . . and while the 'fad" may have ebbed, the style and the music has not faded by any means. . . and Eydie's recordings hold up as "classics" . . and sound as vibrant and relevant to today's musical ear as they did when she first laid these tracks down. (She has included two additional bonus tracks on this "remastered cd" - songs she recorded with 'Louis Bonfa' the brazilian composer/musician.)

One of my own personal favorites on the album is Eydie's take on "Melodie D'Amour! I love the song . . . and I love Eydie's presentation of it.

Another 'classic favorite' of mine found its way into her "bossa nova" styling: "Moon River" from the "Breakfast At Tiffany's" motion picture.

Every track is a most pleasant experience to listen to again and again . . . I'll never be 15 years old again hearing "Blame It On The Bossa Nova" for the first time on the radio . . . but I can relive that time again and again just by putting this cd into the player.

Thank you Ms Eydie Gorme for all of the great music you have gifted us with through the years . . . and particularly thank you for the "smile" that is "Blame It on The Bossa Nova"! (yeah yeah . . . the bossa nova . . no no . . . the bossa nova . . . the dance of love . . . )

Eydie Gorme is a very under-rated singer. As a vocalist she is just stunning (what a set of lungs! and she has a range to die for!). Her voice is also one of the most delightful I've heard. I'm 19, and by no means an avid fan of Eydie's entire career as some reviewers of her CD's seem to be, however, I LOVE this album. The Bossa Nova was an amazingly fun and exciting style and these songs are just swinging, to coin the phrase - so its no wonder this album was one of her most succesful. This newly remastered copy brings the good times swinging into the new millenium with wonderful sound quality.

However the highlight for me is still Blame It On The Bossa Nova - my all time favorite song!!!

That song in itself sold the album to me, but to my joy...and amazment - the rest is superb too!

Way to go, Eydie!

Blame it on the Bossa Nova is an incredibly fine Eydie Gorme album that showcases her vocal talent as she breezes through some stunning bossa nova tunes and other songs rearranged for a bossa nova effect. Eydie is in excellent form here on this album; and that's terrific. The artwork is fine and the quality of the sound is excellent, too.

"One Note Samba" starts the CD with Eydie really opening up her vocal range with the first few notes that she sings; and she handles the tempo changes gracefully--I'm impressed! Eydie simply doesn't miss a note and there's some great percussion and brass--not to mention that flute! "One Note Samba" really starts things off well. "Melody D'Amour" is pretty and very easy on the ear; Eydie's voice is as clear as a bell and again the percussion is used to great advantage on this tune. Eydie handles complex tempo and key changes like the pro she is and always will be! I love it. There's a great horn solo, too. "The Gift" has a fantastic arrangement for the guitar; this is a moving tune that Eydie delivers as effortlessly as if it were mere breathing; but of course we know that it really wasn't so easy--Eydie's talent always carried her through. The horn and flute don't sound too shabby, either! There's also "The Sweetest Sounds" from the show "No Strings;" Eydie sings this with panache. "Dansero" has Eydie never sounding better; she does this so well and the flute enhances the natural beauty of this number. Of course, the title track "Blame It on the Bossa Nova" shines bright when Eydie Gorme sings it; it's catchy, playful and upbeat. This tune really celebrates the joys of falling in love and staying in a loving relationship.
