... Je connais, nous connaissons tous "par cœur" les titres proposés, sur ce triple CD, du célèbre couple, Les Paul et Mary Ford. Je tiens à préciser, qu'a petit prix, nous avons, ici, les enregistrements originaux CAPITOL! En Français, Lucienne Delyle chantait "Prenez mon cœur et mes roses" (Lady of Spain. De "Mandolino" Gloria Lasso en a fait un succès absolu pendant des années (c'est Jean Constantin qui avait signé le texte en Français"...) Luis Mariano et Tino Rossi, chacun à leur façon, interprétaient "Vaya Con Dios et en faisaient, eux aussi un énorme "tube". En bref, un beau voyage musical au milieu des années 50...

HASH(0x95645228) étoiles sur 5 All This Lacks Is Some Background Information/Discography 25 avril 2013
Par George O'Leary - Publié sur Amazon.com
From 1950 to 1961 the husband-and-wife team of guitarist Les Paul (born Lester William Polsfuss on June 9, 1915 in Waukesha, Wisconsin) and vocalist Mary Ford (born Colleen Summers on July 7, 1924 in Elmonte, California) had 29 Billboard Pop hit singles hits. Les also had eleven purely instrumental hits in that same period, many of them flipsides of Mary's vocals. In this 1996 3-CD collection from EMI-Capitol you get all but two of Mary's vocal sides and nine of Les Paul's instrumentals. The AAD sound quality is excellent. What you don't get are liner notes which, in retrospect, is ridiculous for a box set with 36 selections. Even a simple discography would have been nice. What I do here is go through the contents showing those details of each in the order in which they were released.

Les' initial appearance on the charts came in late 1946 when, with The Andrews Sisters, he had Rumors Are Flying reach # 4 on Decca 23656. After relocating to Johnny Mercer's Capitol Records he had the doubled-sided instrumental Lover (# 21) and Brazil (# 22) come out in March 1948 on Capitol 15037 (both here). The set then skips over the May 1948 # 11 What Is This Thing Called Love? (the flip was by a different artist), settling on the July 1950 # 9 Nola which features Les on both the Spanish and steel guitars (Capitol 1014). The flip, which had Mary singing Jealous, did not chart, nor is it here. Another omission is the instrumental Goofus, which ended up at # 21 in October 1950 on Capitol 1192 b/w Mary singing Sugar Sweet.

Before the year was out, and into early 1951, Mary's version of the much-recorded Tennessee Waltz got as high as # 6 on Capitol 1316 while the instrumental flipside, Little Rock Getaway (both included), made it to # 18. Now that the audiences had a taste of Mary's silky-smooth Jazz-tinged voice, from this point on it would be her sides that would command the most attention on radio, in juke boxes and record sales. That began with her rendition of another much-recorded song, Mockin' Bird Hill, spending six weeks at # 2 in March/April 1951 on Capitol 1373, while the Les Paul instrumental, Chicken Reel, was ignored. The only thing keeping Mary from # 1 was the 8 weeks spent at # 1 by Perry Como's If. And right on its heels came How High The Moon which DID rise to # 1 and stayed there for 9 weeks in April/May as well as # 2 R&B on Capitol 1451 (this would be selected to the National Academy Of Recording Arts And Sciences (NARAS) Hall of Fame). Again ignored was the flip, the instrumental Walkin' And Whistlin' Blues, which is too bad really because this was a catchy Jazz tune by Les (also omitted).

Les did see his side of their next hit prevail, as Josephine topped out at # 12 in July/August while Mary's I Wish I Had Never Seen Sunshine settled for a # 18 on Capitol 1592. Late that year, however, Mary had the upper hand again as The World Is Waiting For The Sunshine became another # 2 in September/October while Les' Whispering came close, ending up at # 7 on Capitol 1748, and in November, Mary's vocal on Tiger Rag once more made it to # 2 while Jazz Me Blues by Les had to settle for a # 23 (it's also not here). Also missing are Les' interpretation of Jingle Bells, which got to # 10 at Christmas and Mary's uncharted B-side, Silent Night (Capitol 1881). Early in 1952 Mary sang on both sides, but only Tiger Rag connected, again reaching # 2 in January/February (the B-side on Capitol 1920, was It's A Lonesome Old Town). Later that June they virtually tied as Mary's I'm Confessin' That I Love You reached # 13 while Les' Carioca ended up at # 14 on Capitol 2080 (not included). Then, in July, Mary was front and center on both sides as In The Good Old Summertime hit # 15 and the fantastic Smoke Rings went to # 14 on Capitol 2123.

Les then took top honors in the fall when Meet Mister Callaghan got to # 5 in September/October on Capitol 2193, while Mary's Take Me In Your Arms And Hold Me settled at # 15, and Les' Lady Of Spain rose to # 8 in November on Capitol 2265 while Mary's My Baby's Coming Home failed. However, that was rectified when it was re-released towards the end of the year on Capitol 2316 with her vocal of Bye Bye Blues, the former reaching # 7 and the latter # 5. April 1953 saw I'm Sitting On Top of The World by Mary reach # 10 and the flip, Sleep, by Les Paul, finish at # 21 on Capitol 2400 (it's omitted here). Then came arguably their greatest hit ever, as Vaya Con Dios (May God Be With You) became their second # 1, staying there for 11 solid weeks in July/August 1953 on Capitol 2486, while the flip, Johnny (Is The Boy For Me), again with Mary singing, got to # 15. That November, Mary's Don'cha Hear Them Bells? peaked at # 13 while Les' The Kangaroo (omitted here) reached # 25 on Capitol 2614.

In April 1954, Mary's voice took I Really Don't Want To Know to # 11 while Les' rendition of South - another great tune ignored - failed (it's also left out here) on Capitol 2735 Mary was then on both sides of I'm A Fool To Care (# 6)/The Auctioneer (did not chart) in July/August 1954 on Capitol 2839, and in October she had Wither Thou Goest top out at # 10, with Les' instrumental Mandolino making it to # 19 on Capitol 2928. Their version of Hummingbird got to # 7 in July/August 1955 on Capitol 3165 (the ucharted flip, Goodbye My Love, is omitted), while at the end of the year Mary's Amukiriki (The Lord Willing) finished at # 38 and Les' instrumental Magic Melody barely made the Top 100 at # 96 on Capitol 3248. In February 1956, with R&R taking hold, Texas Lady struggled to a # 91 with Alabamy Bound (not here) as the flip of Capitol 3301, while in March, the instrumental Moritat (Theme From "Three Penny Opera") stalled at # 49 and Mary's Nuevo Laredo as the B-side did worse at # 91.

Their last Capitol hit then came in early 1957 when Cinco Robles (Five Oaks) made the Top 40 at # 35 on CaPITOL 3612 (the B-side was the non-charting Paul instrumental Ro-Ro-Robinson, which is omitted). After moving to Columbia in 1958, they would have two hits, the September 1958 # 32 Put A Ring On My Finger and the May 1961 # 37 Jura (I Swear I Love You). Both may be found on the CD Les Paul & Mary Ford: 16 Most Requested Songs. They would divorce in 1963. Mary passed away at age 49 on September 30, 1977, while Paul lived to 75, dying on August 13, 2009. Although he never cut a R&R record in his life, Les was inducted into the R&R Hall Of Fame in 1988 as an "early influence."

Les Paul and Mary Ford were imprinted on my psyche in my formative years. As my 50th H.S. reunion approaches, I bought these for nostalgia and to see how I would respond.

They hold up! I now realize how creative and unique they were. A recent PBS documentary on Les showed how he virtually invented the electric guitar and multiple tract recording, They indicated he still plays once a week in NYC into his 90s. His guitars led the way to rock music, which then made him passe'. However, he is acknowledged to be accomplished in jazz, blues, country and pop, to which many of these million sellers will attest.
