Summer! Heat! Swimming! Nature! Beach parties... and music!!!This edition mercilessly continues what was started in the predecessors, 'Banana Split' (BCD17513), 'Another Banana Split, Please' (BCD17601) and 'Good Old Summertime' (BCD17528) by Bear Family.On 31 tracks from 1952-1963, the Summer season of the year comes extremely alive, whether as a 'soundtrack' in the car or as a musical enhancement of the garden party!Of course we hear classics of famous artists, for example songs by Keely Smith, Dinah Washington, Conway Twitty, The Brothers Four or Hank Snow!On the other hand, we present plenty of recordings from the rarities box, some appear here for the first time on CD!Instrumentals by the Viscounts or by Tito Puente with a summery Latin flair can be heard as well as early surf sounds by Dave York & The Beachcombers or The Fleetwoods!The musical range is wide: from pop to jazz, rhythm 'n' blues, doo-wop, country music and lots of rock 'n' roll, with Ricky Dean, Johnny O'Neill, Sammy Salvo, Paul Peek and many others!The 20-page color booklet includes notes by producer Marc Mittelacher on each song & many photos and illustrations, some of which are rare.What could be better than dreaming of summer?! Of the sun and the beach, the warm sand and the subsequent cooling bath in the sea. Or the warm summer nights under the blue moon in the nature smelling of blossoms. Would you enjoy a warm summer breeze? The themes surrounding the most beautiful season of the year are almost immeasurable. This is shown especially in the music on Bear Family's already fourth summer compilation! The perfect soundtrack, suitable for all summer activities!Put On A Happy Face demands the legendary crooner Tony Bennett right at the beginning and fitting for the summer. Bennett, like Eydie Gorme and Don Cherry, is on the roster of pop artists in this compilation. There are also classics by the Brothers Four, Keely Smith, Tito Puente and others
