Title: By the Fireside-Velvet Lounge
Artist: Guitar, Bonnie
Label: Bear Family Germany
UPC: 4000127167316
Genre: Jazz Vocals

EU collection of unreleased tracks from the Country vocalist. For several sessions in 1959, Bonnie and her friend, songwriter and producer Don Robertson, holed up in RCA Victor's Hollywood studios in an unusual experiment: recording Bonnie's voice with solo guitar accompaniment. The repertoire ranged from standards, some of which she'd been singing for years in clubs, to new originals, and a couple of Roberson's own classics. Why were these tracks recorded? Bonnie says they were master sessions, though such informality was virtually unprecedented in 1959 (even Johnny Mathis's 'Open Fire: Two Guitars' had a second guitar and a bass). Bonnie's By the Fireside includes 15 of the songs Bonnie and Don recorded back then, which are available here for the first time. Todd Everett's liner notes include quotes from three recent interviews with the artist. Bear Family.
