HOTARIOUS: BARBARA CARTLAND’S ALBUM OF LOVE (1978) via WFMU, Chuck & Dan

10325709_694190713971761_2016573653680154368_n

STARGAYZING: Barbara Cartland’s Album of Love Songs, Sung Especially For You is a thrillingly awful recording from 1978 that combines several things I love very much: bad prose, the singing voice of an elderly woman, orchestral music, and non-singers with big egos leveraging success in other mediums to create a vanity album, especially for you! In the case of this record, we have an eighty-year old English romance novelist whose tentative, tremulous soprano quivers and chirps like a small, wounded bird through some of the finest standards ever written. When she attempts to soar you can hear the panicked flapping of a single wing—”ascend, I say!” Throughout, Miss Cartland’s anemic vocals are ably supported by the massive Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who were undoubtedly well-compensated for this recording. A voice this tentative backed by the Royal Philharmonic is the musical equivalent of using a pen light to guide an ocean liner and, indeed, half the fun of this record is the ever-present risk of icebergs!

LISTEN TO THE FULL ALBUM HERE @ WFMU… and you can download each song too! HOW? For MAC: Just click the song, when the mp3 starts playing… right click on the mp3 bar. Choose “save audio as”. That’s it! Great Sat night Sun morning listening goodness!
