Album Cover of the Week: Two Sides of Eydie Gormé

Album Cover of the Week: Two Sides of Eydie Gormé

Album Cover of the Week
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. RIP, Eydie.
