Description
In this video, singer Frankie Laine talks about working with Mitch Miller from 1949-1959, at both Mercury and Columbia Records. Thanks to Mitch Miller, Laine transformed from a jazz singer to a pop icon of mostly Western themed songs of the 1950s, singing hits from "That lucky old sun" (1949) to "Rawhide" (1958). In one of his stories, Laine recalls a young singer plugging a song in 1950 called "Satan wears a satin gown". (The singer was Tony Bennett). Other songs mentioned in the interview were: "Mule train", "Swamp girl", "The cry of the wild goose", and "Shine" (Mercury label); "Jezebel", "Rose, Rose, I love you", "High noon", "Jealousy", "I believe", "Hey Joe", "Hawkeye" and "Moonlight gambler" (Columbia label).
