2 LPs on 1 CD: BYE BYE BLUES (1952)/LES AND MARY (1955).
Originally released on Capitol.
Adapter: Les Paul.
Liner Note Author: Al Fichera.
Arranger: Les Paul.
This disc contains two complete albums by Les Paul and Mary Ford: Bye Bye Blues from 1952 and Les and Mary from 1955. Bye Bye Blues boasts the Top Five title track and the lesser hits "Jazz Me Blues" and "Smoke Rings," while Les and Mary includes the minor hits "Moritat (Theme From Three Penny Opera)" and "Nuevo Laredo." The latter is particularly novel, featuring Ford multi-tracked into a veritable vocal chorus while Paul creates a phasing effect on his guitar. Paul's instrumentals, like the high-speed "Mammy's Boogie" and a jazzy interpretation of "On the Sunny Side of the Street," are interspersed with Ford's vocal numbers on these two albums, with a somewhat lower proportion of instrumentals than New Sound/Les Paul's New Sound. ~ Greg Adams
