    Some Enchanted Evening

    I was listening to accuradio recently and heard a song called 'Some Enchanted Evening', it was a duet by Frank and Rosemary Clooney.

    Was this an official release?

    Where could i get it?

    Has Frank done other versions of it?

    I really liked the song.

    Thumbs up The World We Knew

    Hi Adam,

    I'm surpised you haven't got this album yet.

    I like it.
    It's got some good '60s songs on it.
    There's a couple of Pet Clark covers, "Don't Sleep In The Subway" and "This Is My Song".
    A Lee Hazlewood song, also covered by Nancy "This Town".
    "Somethin' Stupid" with Frank and Nancy.
    "Born Free".

    And I like the title track, and "Some Enchanted Evening".
    All good songs.

    Is the song a duet on that album, Lea?

    Because the duet i heard with Rosemary Clooney was great.

    I dont know whether it was a digitally created duet though.

    The sample from amazon of 'Some Enchanted Evening' is a quick swingy version.

    The duet i heard was a slow ballad, and i prefer that version.

    Frank and Rosie did the duet together in the studio for the album. "Digital" duets weren't even in the musical lexicon then.

    If you're not yet a fan, Adam, I hope this encounter gets you to listen to Rosemary. She is something special. Just like Frank, I can listen to her all day, unlike Ella, Judy or Barbra.

    Nice to see you Peter.

    I think this duet is wonderful, she has that timeless quality to her voice also.

    Was this duet for a Clooney album then, rather than a Frank album?

    - And by a digital duet, i meant was it constructed ala Nat King Cole Christmas song and Celine Dion 'All The Way'.

    Adam: In 1963 Sinatra and other Reprise artists collaborated on a set of 4 Lps: South Pacific, Finian's Rainbow, Kiss Mr Kate and Guys and Dolls.

    It is called the Reprise Rep. Theater Collection.

    Sinatra and Clooney duet of Some Enchanted Evening is from South Pacific Lp recorded in 1963.

    It is a "REAL" duet.

    Then you owe it to yourself to get the set of Reprise Repertory discs of South Pacific, Guys and Dolls, Finian's Rainbow and Kiss Me Kate.

    Frank Sinatra produced these fine rrecordings in 1963. His original version of "Luck Be a Lady" is from these sessions.

    Ron,

    I had every intention on bringing a woman to this gig, but seeing as my friend from Costa Rica is up here visiting for a few days, he's tagging along. I'm hoping you can talk Jim into giving us the keys to the harem.

    Peace, Dean

    to clarify

    Adam- to clarify, the Some Enchanted Evening on 'The World We Knew' is a bombastic, over-the-top (and annoying) version of the song. It is different from the 2 versions on the Reprise Rep Theatre album, one of which is the Clooney duet. The only way to get these 2 latter versions, to my knowledge, is on the Suitcase set.

    I definitely would not say the version of Some Enchanted Evening on The World We Knew was annoying. I think it was of the most dynamic and exciting songs I have heard. Without doubt it is the highlight on that album.

    PS Dean Martin does a wonderful job of this song also.

    Contrary to what was said earlier on this thread, I have the distinct feeling that Rosemary Clooney and Frank Sinatra recorded their vocals for this at different times, with the intention of making a duet.

    I heard that somewhere, and am almost certain it is true because I remember thinking: "wow, and yet you don't hear those people moaning that this isnít a real duet like you do with the new Duets albums..."

    Anyway, Clooney is a legend. Her best work, in my opinion, was yet to come. Her post 1977 jazz recordings, right up until 2002 are some of the finest you will ever hear.

    She was a stunner in White Christmas though. Hubba Hubba.

    Thats what i thought, Dunc, though i have no knowledge or evidence to really back it up.

    I will try and find a Dean Martin version on amazon, i can imagine Dean singing this song well.
