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.

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

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.
