With the passing of beloved singer Eydie Gormé (of the famed Steve and Eydie duo) at the age of 84, let’s look at a pair of her album covers from the 1950s. The first is the understated sophistication of 1959′s Eydie Swings the Blues (ABC-Paramount, ABC-192). Photography credit for this goes to Arthur Siegel.
This cover is pretty much mid-century elegance defined, wouldn’t you agree? Meanwhile, here’s a fun little number from the next year. It’s 1960′s Eydie in Dixieland (ABC-Paramount, ABC/ABCS 343). Cover photography by Gary Wagner.
