Velvet Lounge-St. Louis Blues
When Eartha starred with Nat King Cole in the 1958 W.C. Handy biopic St. Louis Blues, RCA decided to have her record an album of Handy blues songs and spirituals. Shorty Rogers & His Giants are the Dixieland jazz band on most of these tracks; this is an utterly unique find within the Kitt canon—she puts her own bewitching stamp on St. Louis Blues; The Memphis Blues; Yellow Dog Blues; Careless Love; Beale Street Blues; Long Gone; Steal Away; Hesitating Blues, and more!
