Jane Morgan


Jane Morgan


Florence Catherine Currier (born 1924), known the world over as “Jane Morgan” may only have achieved one Top Ten hit either side of the Atlantic (The Day The Rains Came – UK No.1 & Fascination – US No.7), but she was acknowledged as one of the supreme vocal stylists in popular music. With her strong, clear voice, warm and generous, always used with sensitivity to the meaning of a song (she trained as a lyric soprano opera singer), she gave peerless interpretations of so many of the evergreens of the Great American Songbook that her lack of ‘hits’ hardly matters. Retrospective’s survey does include all those she did have, but mostly concentrates on presenting the cream of the many superior albums with which she graced Kapp’s catalogue for eight years from the mid-50s to early 60s – she was the ‘album artist’ par excellence. To these individual songs are added two complete albums covering specific genres: the Latin-American Jane In Spain and the delightfully folksy Ballads Of Lady Jane. The 57 varieties selected here for The Day The Rains Came will, we trust, demonstrate to today’s listeners that, over half a century ago, Jane Morgan was one of the truly great popular vocal artists of her time ... long may she ‘rain’!
