Requiem: 820 Latham  performed by Mel Torme  1970
Recommended by andyjl [profile]

Great version of a singular break-up song. The original by the Fifth Dimension is driven along by a thumping snare drum - Mel’s take on it is more leisurely, a middle aged guy reflecting on a break-up in heat-hazy late 60s LA. From an LP on which Mel also delivers other “definitive versions of today’s outstanding songs.”

from Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head


These Desperate Hours  performed by Mel Torme  1955
Recommended by bobbyspacetroup [profile]

Here's another early Burt Bacharach composition, this one from (or just a promotional piece for?) the William Wyler film "The Desperate Hours." I haven't seen the movie, but this song makes me want to. This song is steeped in a heavy film noir atmosphere -- with vibes and wailing sax -- that I love. Needless to say, this has a very different sound from the stuff Bacharach would become famous for a few years down the road.


available on CD - Mel Torme At The Movies (Rhino)
