I came across the most beautiful voice I have ever heard a few weeks ago. That was the voice of Jo Stafford. The song was Allentown Jail, a haunting lament of a woman whose lover stole a diamond to give to her and got caught.
This is a kind of fun song called Make Love To Me sung by Jo Stafford.
Yes, that is a fun one. I've heard that before. I think it was probably a big hit of the day—it's certainly catchy. And one thing that interested me is that it blends a remnant of the big band sound of the 40's with the rock-n-roll sound of the late 50's, doesn't it? Which would make sense, since it was recorded in 1954.
It's got that boppy type thing going on with an old style voice. You said it!
