I'll Sing You A Thousand Love Songs: His 53 Finest 1933 - 1958 - Denny Dennis (Retrospective)



イギリスのダンスバンド全盛期に活躍したシンガー、デニー・デニスが様々な楽団で残した録音を集大成した力作コンピレーション。まだ公式のUKチャートが存在しない時期だったので当時どれだけ社会に浸透した録音なのかは不明だが、ソフトながら非常に男性的なボーカルは、ダンスバンドの単なる添え物を越える存在感を誇示している。

幾つかのバンドの看板シンガーを務めた後彼は様々な楽団やメディアのためにピンポイントでボーカルを務めるようになり、中にはトミー・ドーシー楽団に客演し全米チャートにランクインした作品(残念ながら本CDには未収録)や、ヒット曲のカバーを専門にリリースするレーベルへの吹込みなども。当時の音楽業界の様々な様子を知ることができる内容になっている。
