Artist: Cogan, Alma
Label: Jasmine
UPC: 604988079722
Genre: Easy Listening

EU-only two CD set. Universally known as “The girl with the laugh in her voice”, Alma Cogan was The UK’s very first Princess of Pop. She cut her very first record, ‘To Be Worthy Of You’, on her 20th birthday in March 1952, and was rewarded with a Top 5 hit. Alma topped the UK charts with ‘Dreamboat’ in 1955, and during the 1950s she registered 23 hit Records in Britain, far more than any other female singer. This is the first compilation to include all her UK hits, including further ‘signature songs’ like ‘Bell Bottom Blues’, ‘I Can’t Tell A Waltz From A Tango’, ‘Never Do A Tango With An Eskimo’ and ‘Last Night On The Back Porch’, alongside the pick of her other singles. Also featured are a number of her celebrated R&R covers, e.g. ‘Tweedle Dee’, ‘Why Do Fools Fall In Love’, ‘Lucky Lips’, ‘Fabulous’, ‘This Little Girl’s Gone Rockin’’ and ‘Pink Shoelaces’. She enjoyed considerable international success, notably in Japan, where ‘He Just Couldn’t Resist Her With Her Pocket Transistor’ topped the charts. Alma died in 1966 at the tragically young age of 34, at more or less the peak of her popularity, following a battle with ovarian cancer.
