Linda Lawson originally started out in Las Vegas singing for two years before she was able to make this album in 1960. This album is wonderfully arranged by Marty Paich and it's not hard to see why the original album is a collector's item.
The loungy album is mostly full of standards like You Don't Know what Love Is and But Beautiful. The best number on the set is Like Young which takes the beatnik craze for all it was, even throwing in Kerouac's name. I love the up tempo "Up pops Love" just as much.
Afterwards Linda Lawson put her music career aside for a film one, which resulted in her role as the mysterious mermaid in the noir thriller Night Tide. She brought an alluring charisma to the screen as well. But her name was seldom heard again. Despite that she briefly gave the entertainment industry a great star.

I came across this woman's fine work while listening to the Bob Dylan Theme Time Radio Hour. The song "Like Young" sold me. (The theme was "Young and Old".) The other songs are just as top notch. She only recorded one album and then went on to pursue a film and television career instead. Her voice is warm and inviting and she's no phony.

To do a fair analysis of any work done in a time period gone by, allowance for technical limitations at that time have to be considered. With that in mind, this recording fits in well with other "lounge-style" subtle vocals of the late 50's-early 60's.
Though not quite as expressive as a Julie London, or Lola Albright, her phrasing and inflexion does typify the enjoyable, subtle romantic singers of that time. Too bad she didn't do more.
