From the moment that I heard "The Longest Walk" for the first time (and that was in the early seventies), I became an avid fan of Jaye P. Morgan, buying her records whenever I could find them.
Well, here is a collection of her finest 45s (and one album cut) recorded for RCA in the 1950s. "The Longest Walk" , needless to say, never sounded better.
Many cuts are her sides with the Hugo Winterhalter Orchestra. But one outstanding number is "Blind Date" written by Leiber- Stoller. Her plaintive delivery of that chestnut melts my heart. As for the rest of the selections, well they won't disappoint either. The song "The I'll Be Happy" (in stereo) was lifted from her second LP for the label "Just You,Just Me". The LP is a five star knock-out, and currently available as an import.
Her best work did not end at RCA, however. She signed with MGM Records in 1959 where she recorded the exemplary "Slow & Easy" as well as three more fine LPs including a delightful country album.
However, her best sides for that label were actually released on two 45s. The first was "Will He Like Me" from the broadway show "She Loves Me." The second was her quintessential version of the standard "I'm Nobody's Sweetheart." She really lets loose on this song. The orchestra, conducted by Marty Paiche on both songs, hits a home run.
I'm still hoping that Polygram, which I assume still owns the MGM masters, will release these records in the future. Jaye P.'s fans have waited long enough.

Jaye P. Morgan's clean, crisp singing style is apparent and the sound is good on this album. Jaye P. sings with a style that shows much creativity as she uses subtle changes in each song. If she were around today, she could adapt her style and be comtempory in today's ballad music. She sings with much heart and sensitivity on the ballad songs and sings with a bright, fun heart on the more upbeat songs. They bring back the 50's with a bang. She was so popular for a few years and then disappeared. This album shows her very unique style and is a must for any Jaye P. Morgan fan. It's good to hear from her again.

I know this isn't labeled her "best" or "greatest" at RCA, and is merely meant to present some of the cuts she made for that label, but to have over a third of the contents represent failed singles (I Thought It Was Over, Take A Chance, My Blind Date, and Easy Does It) and obscure cuts (Echo Of Love, Graduation Ring, and Then I'll Be Happy) seems a bit extreme. Especially when they give us her first 10 RCA hits and, after skipping over the next five, her final two in 1956.

In doing that Collectors' Choice Music/BMG missed a golden opportunity to have, on the market, the best Jaye P. Morgan CD bar none. But what is here, coupled with the two pages of liner notes by Robert W. Rice and the discography of the contents, makes this a solid 4-star volume.

It starts of with her first RCA hit, and my personal favourite, That's All I Want For You which, with the backing of the Hugo Winterhalter orchestra, made it to # 3 Billboard Pop Top 100 in late 1954/early 1955 b/w Dawn (not included here). She followed that up a few months later, again with the Winterhalter orchestra, with the double-sided hit Danger! Heartbreak Ahead (# 12) b/w Softly, Softly which is registered as a "follow-along" hit. That summer she paired with the late, great Perry Como on Chee Chee-oo Chee (Sang The Little Bird) which reached # 12 in July b/w Two Lost Souls, from the musical Damn Yankees, which also charted at # 18. Both were backed by Mitchell Ayres & His Orchestra.

Later that summer she was back with Winterhalter on The Longest Walk, a solid # 6 in September b/w the old Al Jolson hit, Swanee, which was regarded as a "follow-along" hit as well.
