Blossom Dearie - Surrey With the Fringe on Top

On the Dreamtime list of shows that need to be done is one on Blossom Dearie and her School House Rock colleague, Jack Sheldon, another unique performer who our host mentioned in an aside in another TTRH episode.

Unfortunately, the two available YouTube videos of Dearie singing Rhode Island is Famous for You also feature miming performers in drag, so I think we'll take a pass on those and do another Broadway classic, Surrey With the Fringe on Top.

Dearie's version of Rhode Island... can be found on CD or as a downloadable MP3 at Amazon, from her album Soubrette Sings Broadway Hit Songs. Highly recommended for those who like Broadway show tunes, or those just discovering Blossom Dearie.
