Title: Sothern Lamour
Artist: Ann Sothern / Dorothy Lamour
Catalogue No.: SEPIA 1127
Barcode: 5055122111276
Release Date: 2 March 2009

At first it may seem strange to see screen legends Ann Sothern and Dorothy
Lamour sharing a musical CD, but in reality they were two of the most
popular singing actress / comediennes in the history of movies and each had
the distinction of enjoying careers that spanned six decades from the 30's
to the 80's, with both making their final screen appearances in 1987. Though
their paths never crossed in a major way, they are both listed as chorus
girls in the 1933 Busby Berkeley classic "Footlight Parade" and both
released successful LPs in 1957, from which this new Sepia collection is
derived.

In between the popular "Maisie" films, Ann Sothern continued to star in
other films as well, among them "Lady Be Good" in which she introduced "You'll
Never Know" (the rare Roger Edens version, not Harry Warren) and the
Kern-Hammerstein classic "The Last Time I Saw Paris" which won that year's
Oscar for Best Song. The following year saw her recreating Ethel Merman's
role in Cole Porter's "Panama Hattie," in which her songs included the hit
"Let's Be Buddies".

Dorothy Lamour is best-remembered for the "Road to" films with Bing Crosby
and Bob Hope. She had no formal training as a singer, but auditioned for a
vocalist spot with bandleader Herbie Kay and got the job. Following radio
appearances with Rudy Vallee, she signed a movie contract  and was starred
in her first film, "The Jungle Princess" in which she wore her trademark
costume, a sarong, and introduced the song "Moonlight and Shadows". She
appeared in a succession of dramas, comedies, musicals and of course south
sea island adventures in her sarong and became one of the few movie stars to
be equally popular on records.

In 1957, as her films were bringing her new popularity on television, she
issued an LP containing 10 of her favourite tracks. We are delighted to
release this collection of songs by Ann Sothern and Dorothy Lamour, two
former glamour girls who through sheer talent and hard work held on to their
stardom for most of the past century.  Their movies, as well as these
recordings, will continue to win them new fans for years to come.
