Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Candye Kane is a publicist's dream. A self-proclaimed "fat, bisexual, ex-porn-star blues singer," Kane is as colorful as a peacock in a paint plant. Indeed, her more flamboyant qualities (we're talking 52-inch bust here!) have earned her a considerable club-circuit following. Swango proves she can also hold her own in the recording studio. Here is ample evidence that Kane is something more than a bawdy chick with a few lewd tricks. What's striking is how comfortable she is as a vocalist, whether she's essaying Big Maybelle's "Candy" or Mama Cass's "Dream a Little Dream." (Kane has a conspicuous affection for weighty women.) Blues, swing, pop, cabaret... Kane is on top of 'em all. And one can imagine each genre letting out a satisfied sigh. --Steven Stolder

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite swing cd December 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I saw Candye Kane recently, and bought thsi after the show. candye's energy and dirty sense of humore won the audience over, however her voice is what is really special, she has a beautiful clear voice and sings in a 1940's/50's style, and really understands the blues, and knows how to SWING the blues. Her band is so tight and the pianist is a boogie woogie legend Sue Palmer(who has a band of her own, worth checking out), you will be swing dancing in no time once you put this cd in the player. The songs on this cd range from a dexieland version of Dream A Little Dream of Me to full on swing numbers like "200 Pounds Of Fun". This is my personal favorite of Candye's cd's for it really swings and is full of exciting performances. This is an eXTRA special cd, by an extra SPECIAL singer! BUY IT TODAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best bands of the late 90's swing revival... December 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I remember seeing Candye Kane live at the now defuct swing club Music City in Fountian Valley, in California, back when lindy hopping was all the rage(it still is to a few of us). This cd features Kane with her group of the time Her Swing Armadillos, featuring boogie woogie piano great Sue Palmer, who keeps the whole cd, junping! Kane's vocals sound like she's in the 1920's-40's era, and her vocals are strong and very authentic in blues/swing tradition. This is her best all around "swing" cd. It features the great original "Swango", a mix of swing and tango, the fun "200 Lbs Of Fun", a 1920's dixiealnd flavored "Dream A Little Dream Of Me"(that would make even Ruth Etting proud). A Big Mabelle influenced "Candy", and many other enjoyanle songs. Overall this is a consistantly exellent cd, worth picking up, and make sure to see Kane next time she's in town. She is 200 Poulds of FUN!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A more then capable blues and swing singer... January 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Miss Kane is perhaphs one of the most talented female vocalists to emerge grom the "neo swing" revival of teh late 90's. Her vocie recalls Etta James, and at the same time Sophie Tucker. She performs music that ranges from early R&B, jump blues, and dixieland with a 1920's falir, but it all falls in the swing category, and everything is great for dancers(especially lindy hoppers)! The group on this cd is essentially members from her Swingin Armadillos, including boogie woogie Queen of teh piano Miss Sue Palmer. A classic swing set.
Also get:
Candye Kane-The Toughest Gal Alive
and for more of a blues set, rather then all swing try her latest:
Whole Lotta Love

Candye is the real deal. Buy this disc and find out for yourself. Prepared to be blown away. Incredible vocal power and sophisticated arrangements and delivery. Bold brassy self-assured--what the blues is all about.

Candye has incredible talent! Her versatility on this album cannot be matched by any of her "peers". In fact with such a broad range of talent she really has no peers. The ultimate entertainer!

5.0 out of 5 stars What we've got here is a gift to the world of music October 31, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Now let's forget labels for a second. Who cares whether music is "blues", "swing", "big-band", whatever. The only label you should put on music is whether you like it or not. And there is NO ONE who I have played this CD for who has not liked it. Not only will you feel a great natural high listening to it, but the production values are so surprisingly high that you'll feel like you're getting high right there, with the band. This thing, for lack of a better cliche, rocks. And it rolls. And it will draw your emotions to it. Give it a listen. You will not be sorry.
