Eydie Gorme occupies a place in popular song that is so manifestly her own that no
one else comes within challenging distance.  In a few short years, the fabulous
Eydie has succeeded in establishing herself as a gloriously unique singing star.
Dazzling though her display of vocal technique is, there is more to her singing than
that, for Eydie invests each song she sings with the full measure of mood and

All the songs Eydie has chosen for BLAME IT ON THE BOSSA NOVA (the album's
title song was a recent smash-hit single) seem tailor-made especially for her.  In
addition to her now-famous Blame It on the Bossa Nova, Eydie offers more songs
in the exciting, new jazz-samba rhythm from Brazil, like Desafinado and The Gift.
Broadway ballads like Richard Rogers' hit from "No Strings," The Sweetest Sounds,
and Almost Like Being in Love from Lerner and Loewe's "Brigadoon" are
afforded stunning, swinging versions la Gorme.  One Note Samba and I Remember
You are further evidence of her compelling vocal magic.

The entire collection, in fact, makes for a program of topflight entertainment woven
together by Eydie's undeniable artistry.  Each song possesses the sparkle and
excitement that have made Eydie Gorme a leading female vocalist, equally acclaimed
on records and television, and in theatres and nightclubs.
