Liberty LRP 3125
In the glittering never-never kingdom known as "Sho-Biz" there are thousands of "geniuses" who can give you answers to thousands of complex questions pertaining to what is good and what is bad entertainment. But not one can explain the small, but oh-so-necessary, spark that separates the great performers from the merely talented ones. It is an indefinable commodity often referred to as "warmth;' "heart" or often just..."IT.”
Bud Dashiell and Travis Edmonson, the stars of this album, have "IT"...that certain something that causes everyone to sit up and notice that here are two unusually gifted young men. They have literally stirred up a musical storm in the entertainment world.
It is extremely hard to place them in any particular musical category because they will attack any area of song from Beethoven to bop, blues, pop, rock-and-roll, Spanish, French or American folk songs. They are also highly talented composers of original material.
Bud and Travis not only know the songs but they know about the songs they sing. From diligent research, personal knowledge, an intelligent approach and much, much honest sweat and toil, they have assembled a repertoire that equips them to entertain any type of audience from the espresso coffee house Beatniks to the white ties and ermine wraps of the Diamond Horseshoe and the uninhibited stampings of saddle-oxford-encased bobby-soxers, or Uncle Zeke's Saturday night hayloft hoedown.
This collection of songs is fairly representative of the things they like. You will love the beautiful Spanish songs: Malaguena and Florecita. Delia's Gone and They Call The Wind Maria are delightful folk ballads. Your favorite may be the infectious Truly Do or the exciting South Wind. All together this album is a wonderfully diversified musical program that will assure you many hours of pleasure.
Other Bud and Travis records and albums will follow-but hang on to this one. As time goes on and musical trends change you will find it to be one of your most delightful musical possessions.
(Joe Allison has worked on many television shows with Bud and Travis in and around the Los Angeles area.)
