Editorial Reviews

Eileen Barton was a born entertainer, she was barely 3 years old when she started singing on stage. By the time she was 7, she performed as Milton Berle's sidekick 'Jolly Gillette'. A popular stage and radio actress across America, the still young Eileen was chosen to sing beside Frank Sinatra on his first radio show. Over the 58 great tracks on this set, 50 of them have never been available on CD before, including 10 charting songs from 1950-1954. "If I Knew You Were Comin I'd've Baked A Cake" was a number 1 hit for 12 weeks.

The two CD set has many great songs; but I will pick my favorites here.

If you love the music of the early fifties you will not be disappointed if you purchase this set.

In an industry as competitive as the music business, that could be a decisive factor.

Jasmine is a British company that, of late, has been bringing out 2-CD sets of artists (such as the Ames Brothers) whose best-known work is from the 1950s, music that I like. Eileen Barton is a singer from the late 1940s and early 1950s who is best known for one hit (though it was a very big one), a song whose title is the same as this album's, and which is included here. So when I heard that Jasmine was bringing out an Eileen Barton set, I wondered how they'd find enough material. Well, as I found out when I did a little research before I got this CD set, she actually had two other (minor) chart hits, both of which are also in this set. But not even three songs would make a CD, much less a 2-CD set (and a rather big one, with 29 tracks on each of the 2 CDs). So what does this CD contain?

Well, anyone familiar with the music of the 1950s must be aware that typically, the same song was recorded by many artists at the same time, though typically only one or two versions became popular. In fact, one of Eileen Barton's two minor hits that are in this collection, "Pretend," was a major hit for another singer, Nat King Cole. And the collection includes a number of such covers, some of which I like quite a lot. (I've never been a fan of Johnnie Ray, so that I like her version of "Cry" better than Ray's hit version is no surprise. But I generally like Perry Como, though his version of "Don't Let The Stars Get in Your Eyes" is hardly a favorite Como song to me, and so it's more unusual that I find, on here, a version I like better. But the song benefits by Barton's rather livelier way of singing it.)

There are also a large number of songs which, for some reason, never made the charts for anyone.

Format: Audio CD
Eileen Barton simply does not get the recognition she deserves as a great singer of the twentieth century. Eileen had a voice that was as clear as a bell and when she sang it was beautiful. This two CD set gives us a whopping fifty-eight (yes, fifty-eight) of her songs; and that's great!

The two CD set has many great songs; but I will pick my favorites here. "Would You Believe Me" features Eileen singing flawlessly with a great arrangement for the piano and strings; and when Eileen comes in this number becomes a true masterpiece! "If I Knew You Were Comin'; I'd've Baked A Cake" is a bouncy, peppy and relentlessly happy number with The New Yorkers on backup that still belongs to Eileen and Eileen alone. "Honey, Honeymoon With Me" features a fine piano arrangement as Eileen sings this flawlessly. Eileen sings of how she wants to marry her man and have a marvelous honeymoon. Awesome! The backup chorus enhances the natural beauty of "Honey, Honeymoon With Me," too.

"Cry" gets the royal treatment from Eileen; Eileen sings this so passionately that she makes "Cry" all her own! The horns and piano carry the bulk of the beautiful melody. "Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes" has a slightly Latin melody and Eileen sings this very, very well. I predict that you will enjoy "Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes." "Tennessee Tango" is another fantastic number that features Eileen singing flawlessly; the arrangement blends a slightly country flavor with a Latin beat to create a strong number with lots of punch for Eileen to sing! "Don't Ask Me Why" showcases Eileen's vocals well, too.

"Pine Tree, Pine Over Me" sports a country beat and Eileen sings this well with Johnny Desmond and The McGuire Sisters. The musical arrangement works well for "Pine Tree, Pine Over Me.

I bought the Eileen Barton CD set for one song only, Pine Tree, Pine Over Me. What a delight it was to listen to the other accompanying songs from the past. Her voice has character, unique to only Eileen as were many of the singers from the 1940's and 50's. The remastering of this set is marvelous, as if I was in the recording studio listening live!
