The 1960's Pop brother and sister act Nino Tempo and April Stevens lent their distinctive and engaging Pop sensibilities to each song. The group's biggest hit was 1963's number one sensation "Deep Purple", which was recorded in fifteen minutes at the end of a recording session almost as an after-thought. Among the other hits included on this CD (comprised of two of their Atlantic albums) are "Whispering," "Tea For Two" and "True Love".
2 LPs on 1 CD: DEEP PURPLE (1963)/SING THE GREAT SONGS (1963).
Originally released on Atco.
Liner Note Authors: Ahmet Ertegun; Bob Altshuler.
Arranger: Jimmie Haskell.
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Nino Tempo and April Stevens LPs: Deep Purple and Sing the Great Songs, both originally issued on Epic Records in 1962 and 1963, respectively. Highlights among the 24 tracks include "Tea For Two," "Whispering," and the hit "Deep Purple," which are pleasant, but not essential. ~ Al Campbell
