When American vocalist John Raitt (1917-2005) first entered the limelight in the mid-1940s, he became known for his resonant and lyrical baritone voice. When combined with Raitt's ability as a thespian, his vocal finesse helped him land the role of Billy Bigelow in the original Broadway run of Carousel (1945-47), as well as subsequent work in The Pajama Game and many other productions. In later years, he teamed up with his daughter, pop-rock singer Bonnie Raitt, for a series of joint concerts. This release travels back to John's heyday, with a compilation of his performances that originally appeared on the Bell Telephone Hour. Selections include: "They Say That Falling in Love is Wonderful," "Summertime," "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "Evelina," "Toyland," "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and more.
