Allentown Jail - The Very Best Of Lita Roza 1951-1962


Chic, classy, elegant and bewitchingly beautiful, with her huge, flashing eyes, Lita Roza brought glamour to austere, post-WWII Britain. Lita was also blessed with both perfect pitch and an awesome voice, was comfortable singing in almost any musical genre, and she was, by a long shot, the outstanding British female vocalist of her era. She'd initially made her name as a singer with the Ted Heath band, which she joined in 1950, before leaving in 1954 to pursue a solo career. This compilation presents the Very Best of her singles between 1951-62, featuring all her chart records, 'Allentown Jail', 'Blacksmith Blues', 'High Noon', 'Botch-A-Me', 'Half As Much', 'Hey There' and 'Jimmy Unknown'. In particular, it includes her UK No.1 'How Much Is That Doggie In The Window', a song she famously, heartily despised. These sides were recorded across three different record labels, Decca, Pye and Ember, and this is the first time that this body of work has been thus compiled
