Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD includes the only two hits that Archie Bleyer ever really had: "The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane" (which shared chart honors with another version by the Ames Brothers) and "Hernando's Hideaway." If you know the sound of these two, however, you will be surprised to hear the other songs on the disk. Those two both had vocal choruses, while everything else on the CD is an instrumental. While they sound pretty good, those instrumentals aren't what you might be expecting if you buy this CD based on knowing the two hits.

Still, nothing on here sounds bad, and it does have two authentic hit songs, the most hits you can get of Bleyer!

Format: Audio CD
Pianist/arranger and band leader Archie Bleyer (born in Queens, New York on June 12, 1909) began his lengthy career in the early 1930s and, after heading his own band at Earl Carroll's Hollywood nightclub, recorded rather prolifically for a series of labels including Vocalion, Perfect, Melotone, Rome, Oriole without ever gaining a toehold on what then passed as the national singles charts.

His association with the ultra-egomaniac and control-freak Arthur Godfery's TV show is well documented up to and including his sacking by Godfrey along with singer Julius LaRosa and The Chordettes. But that didn't slow down his career one iota as he and his various musical gatherings would go on to back the afore-mentioned artists and many more, including Andy Williams, Johnny Tillotson, Lennie Welch, Kay Thompson, Bill Hayes, Joyce Hahn and others at his new Cadence Records label for the next couple of decades.

Along the way he'd find time to sporadically release records of his own music (usually with a chorus), three of which became nationally-charting singles. On one of those he went head-to-head with the great Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians at Decca and Johnny Ray at Colombia with his rendition of Hernando's Hideaway from the Broadway musical The Pajama Game, and when the dust clear there was Archie sitting at # 2 in the June-July stretch of 1954 billed as Archie Bleyer & His Orchestra with Chorus - Maria Alba Castanet Soloist on Cadence 1241 b/w S'il Vous Plait. The Lombardo and Ray versions had to settle for a # 14 each. The only thing keeping him from a # 1 was the 9 weeks spent there in that period by Kitty Kallen's Little Things Mean A Lot.

I must admit that I bought this cd strictly for the Hernando's Hideaway song, but found other jewels on the album. I am happy that I have this in my collection.
