“Flamingo Serenade” by The Flamingos - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1959Album Chart of the Decade: 1950s

TJR says

The swellegant doo woppers from Chicago had a noticeable change of direction when they started recording for George Goldner’s End Records in 1958. More and more the song selections would dip into the old Broadway standards of the 1930s and 1940s, a move which was well rewarded via pop chart success. This was not an undertaking that gelled well with my sensibilities, although the undoubted class shone through on “Music, Maestro, Please!” and “I Only Have Eyes For You”. The latter, written in 1934 by composer Harry Warren and lyricist Al Dubin for the film “Dames”, became their biggest seller, and has been featured in dozens of movies and TV shows. Overall stamp? Beware of the manufactured pop process…
