MONDAY, JUNE 29, 1953 BLTTHKVILLK (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Yv.-^ RECORD SHOP By RICHARD KLGINKB NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK —(NBA) — Why don't Broadway singing stars make successful recording artists? "It's a completely different technique," says Dolores Gray, who is the exception. She does both, and well. "You really have to belt on the stage," she says. "Compared to the voice you use on the stage, you practically whisper when you make a record. It's hard to make the change.". Miss Gray says she can do both because her voice is "adaptable." A She's proved it by her successful records—like "Kawliga" and "Big Mamou"—and her successful shows —like "Two On the Aisle." She's in the new musical, "Carnival in Flanders," now on tour In preparation for a New York opening in the fall. She likes .both. "You reach a public with recdrds," says the tall blonde star, "that you couldn't reach any other way in 50 years." The only drawback she finds is that the kind of songs she really likes to sing—dreamy ballads— don't sell too well. So she's making the faster-paced, faster-selling novelties. "I learned that the hard way," she says. "I've made several collectors' items—the only person who bought them was me."
