Description

In the autumn of 1957, Pat Suzuki signed a recording contract with the RCA subsidiary label VIK Records. During her tenure with RCA, Suzuki released four best selling studio albums (including the Grammy nominated "Broadway '59") and a handful of singles. This collection compiles all Pat Suzuki's non-album singles recorded for both VIK / RCA between 1958 - 1960 and her sole release for Capitol Records in 1961. The collection concludes with two pop singles Pat recorded for the PDA label in 1967 alongside a handful of tracks recorded for "Pat!", a mid Sixties solo album that was never released. Tracks include "Pat Suzuki's Football Four", four highly collectable singles issued by VIK Records in September 1958 featuring Suzuki's interpretations of various college football anthems. Also featured is Suzuki's single version of "Love Eyes" (from the musical 'Whoop-Up!'), recorded during the "Broadway '59" sessions but omitted from the final album. Moving from RCA to Capitol in 1961, Suzuki issued one single for the label featuring tracks from the then current Broadway shows 'Sail Away' and 'The Gay Life'. In the mid Sixties, Suzuki collaborated with Warren B. Meyers on a proposed new album of show songs and standards. Five tracks were recorded for the album project (titled 'Pat!') and a handful of acetate test pressings were manufactured. The five tracks recorded include a rousing rendition of Stephen Sondheim's 'Everybody Says Don't' (from 'Anyone Can Whistle'), a striking interpretation of Frank Loesser's 'Never Will I Marry' (from 'Greenwillow') and a showstopping version of 'When The Sun Comes Out'. Sadly the album project was never completed, however we're pleased to present all the tracks Pat recorded for PDA on this collection of 'Singles and Rarities'. The release of 'Singles And Rarities' is a collaboration between Pat Suzuki and Stage Door Records to reissue Suzuki's complete discography as a solo recording artist. Also available is 'The Complete Album Series', a 2CD set featuring the four solo albums Pat Suzuki recorded for RCA Records between 1958-1960. 'Singles And Rarities' forms part of Stage Door's COLLECTOR'S SERIES, a line of limited edition CD products presented in the retro style of a miniature long-playing record. All Collector's Series titles are limited to 500 units.
