Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: THERE I SING (1958)/SWING IT AGAIN (1958).
Includes original release liner notes.
Vaughn Monroe's 1958 album There I Sing, Swing It Again begins with his 1949 hit version of "Riders in the Sky" that the original liner notes say is a re-recording. Either the notes are wrong or later reissues replaced the re-recording with the original, because the CD has the 1949 recording. The other songs are remakes of songs Monroe originally recorded in the '40s, about one-third of which are instrumental. Bonus tracks on some reissues include Monroe's last four hits from 1955-1959, including his most notorious recording, Leiber & Stoller's "Black Denim Trousers and Motorcycle Boots," performed not as a rock & roll song but as a bizarre piece of orchestral pop. Also of note is Monroe's competing version of "The Battle of New Orleans," but most buyers would be better served by a simple greatest-hits anthology. ~ Greg Adams
