Claire Hogan, a former big band singer, eventually became the secretary for legendary composer, Cy Coleman.It was while she was working in this capacity that he oversaw the production of a pair of Hogan recordings for the MGM label. This is the first of the two, with Leroy Holmes orch., released in 1956. The second, Boozers and Losers, came more than a decade later, in 1967. Rather far apart, I would say. Guess she was otherwise detained answering the phone, and taking dictation for Coleman. Of the two, I prefer the '67 effort. But that one is rather easy to come by on the rare record market, while this one eluded my capture for a number of years until last November when I was record shopping in Tokyo and I came across this perect facsimile edition of the LP. Perfect because the copy is absolutely accuarate in every reproductive detail, down to even the same rather heavy cardboard stock that MGM employed for its jackets. A-ma-zing!
