Title: Gloria De Haven Sings
Artist: Gloria De Haven
Catalogue No.: SEPIA 1137
Barcode: 5055122111375
Release Date: 8 September 2009

Gloria DeHaven started her Hollywood career playing ingénues in musicals before graduating to femme fatale roles. Between films, DeHaven performed in supper clubs; Decca signed her in 1951 to her first record deal and where she was given mainly commercial material ("Red Hot Pepper Pot", "I Wish I Wuz"), pitched blatantly at the charts. Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians backed her on several sides and DeHaven's cover of the Tony Bennett hit Because of You reached number eleven on the charts.

She did her best recorded work for RCA Thesaurus, a transcription service that supplied tracks for radio. DeHaven's Thesaurus sides are sampled here commercially for the first time. Backed by small ensembles, she sings choice standards (Someone to Watch Over Me, He's Funny That Way, The Lady Is a Tramp) with intimacy and great charm.

This CD also takes a look back at DeHaven's big chance on Broadway in 1955. Seventh Heaven had a score by film composer and resident Decca maestro Victor Young. From the show DeHaven pulled out all the stops in two heart-tugging, tear-stained ballads, Where Is That Someone for Me? and If It's a Dream.

Studio recordings from her film So This is Paris and four sides cut in the late 1950s; Dearly Beloved and I Hadn't Anyone Till You performed with a semi-rock beat conclude this 27 track CD.
