Charming, outrageous, lyrical, extraordinary, pithy, rarified, tuneful, earnest, ravishing – put them all together and what do they spell? Cole Porter, a master of melody and lyric invention the likes of which are rarified indeed. To that we can add witty, urbane, naughty, heartfelt, impish, and sophisticated. “Night and Day,” “Love for Sale,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Anything Goes,” “All Through the Night,” “You’re the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “Being the Beguine,” “Just One of Those Things,” “It’s DeLovely,” “Ridin’ High,” “You’d Be So Easy to Love,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “In the Still of the Night” are just the tip of the Porter iceberg, along with such shows as Fifty Million Frenchmen, The New Yorkers, Gay Divorce, Nymph Errant, Anything Goes, Jubilee, Red, Hot, and Blue, Kiss Me Kate, Out of This World, Can-Can, Silk Stockings, and films like High Society, Les Girls, Born to Dance, and more.
There were five volumes of Cole Porter Revisited on LP and then CD. The second volume was called Unpublished Cole Porter Volume II, even though it’s really volume two in the Revisteds, or so it would seem. This volume is all about the rare and we get some real unknown gems here, sung by the likes of Karen Morrow, Edward Earle, Laura Kenyon, Alice Playten, Blossom Dearie, Carmen Alvarez, Charles Rydell, and an appearance by Kaye Ballard. The arrangements are by Judd Woldin. As we’ve done for all these releases, we’ve considerably spruced up the sound for this new release. And the cover art is, of course, by the great Harvey Schmidt. -KRITZERLAND
