Title: Sings Just For Fun
Artists: Johnny Mercer
Catalogue No.: SEPIA 1194
Barcode: 5055122111949
Release Date: July 2012

Lyricist for more songs than any other songwriter in history, Oscar-winning Johnny Mercers also made recordings and had four chart- toppers in the 1940s. The 29 tracks here span four decades; from the 1940s we offer five fun songs appearing on CD for the first time. From the 1950s are songs Mercer recorded with the Paul Smith Trio and appearing in stereo for the first time including his own "Blues in the night", "Spring, spring, spring" and "Accentuate the positive". Also included are nine demo songs Mercer composed with Hoagy Carmichael for an aborted film project, "The Keystone Girl" to star Betty Hutton. These demos with Mercer performing and Carmichael accompanying on piano are appearing on CD for the first time and include the first ever recorded version of the Oscar-winning "In the cool, cool, cool of the evening". The final four tracks are demos from the Mercer / Andre Previn West End stage musical "The Good Companions" starring Judi Dench. One of the four tracks, "Little lost dream" got rejected from the final production and how wonderful it is to hear it being sung here by the lyricist with piano accompaniment by the composer Andre Previn.
