Gone For The Day/Fair and Warmer
by June Christy
Released: Jan 1957
Label: Blue Note Records
This set couples two of Christy's "It's-spring,-let's-have-picnic!" concept LPs from the 1950s. Even in this upbeat, sunny climate, she can't stop slipping rainy torch songs into the program, just as master arranger Pete Rugolo can't help backing his muse with challenging charts. Christy's take on "When Sunny Gets Blue" is definitive.
