ITWBLVI ILYTHJCVlLUC (ARK,) COURIER NBW1 MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1M4 •* MCMMt KLEINER MIA «•* C*»MPOB4MI tfCW YORK - (MKA) - Helen -JJ5 wbo quit iinglue tor house- «V*ly dull** tbout 10 ye»rs ago, is tack in buslneu. Mlu Wird was jCnnr Goodman's original vocalist ^-^ fUll flngi with the nest of •T think I Hund better now," uys "It teems to me that my to mellower than tt used to ttw's applying her «*• mellow er vole* to the old, mellower songs — the "Nice-Work-If-You-Can-Oet- JT tw». She gives them a drive and beat that only she can. Her Krst comeback album, which she did for Columbia with Percy Faith, fc significantly called "It's Been So Long." Why only old songs? Helen would like to sing some new ones, too, but the Columbia planners said no. "Nostalgia, nostalgia," she said, wearily, "that's all I heard." Besides, she doesn't think too much of the modern attempts. "Some of the hit songs of today •re ridiculous," she says. "You'll never be able to remember them •ext year." But she still would like to take a vocal crack at up-to-date numbers. She looks around and sees other comeback canaries hitting the juke boxes with current favorites. "Helen O'Connell was retired, too, icd they let her sing new songs," she says, with the air of a kid whi teen the neighbor's youngster stay- tag up late. • • • THE POPULAR SIDE: Decca will release the sound-track of "The Glenn Miller Story." . . . Working all night, Columbia engineers set speed records In rushing the "Kismet" album to stores. It »a* recorded in an all-day session i .on a Sunday, and the album Was I put on sale tie next Wednesday "The Creep" may be '54's first big hit. Ralph Marterie (Mercury) and Stan Kenton (Capitol) have recorded it, but the Three Suns on RCA •till have the top version. ON THE CLASSIC*: Robert Schu mann's biographical and autoW ographlcal Carnival is with us in a brilliant new Columbia release by pianist Walter Gieseklng. In 30 lit tie sections Schumann portrays his girl friend, his wife, Chopin an< himself, among others. Franz Usz called it "one of the greatest works I know." . . . Although the artist is anonymous, it's a good bet that It's Artur Rubinstein playing Grieg's Concerto in A-Minor on the inex pensive Bluebird label. Anla Dorf mann, without camouflage, does Mendelssohn's Corcerto No. 1 or the oilier side. And does it nicely, DICK'S PICKS SUREFIRE: "Answer Me, My Love" (Nat "King" Cole, Capitol). SLEEPER: "Honeycomb" (Georgie Shaw. Decca). GOOD ONES: "I Took the Long Way Around" (Betty Hutton, Capitol); "Y'All Come" (Bing Crosby, Decca); "Just One Move Chance" (Jerry Murad, Mercury) ; "Tenderly" (Stan Kenton, Capitol); "Poppa Piccolino" (Dolores Gray, Decca). POP ALBUM: One of the best find most interesting in a long time is Perry Como's "I Believe." It was Perry's idea, and he spent hours perfecting these eight hymns — two nonsectarian, two Catholic, two Proestant and two Jewish. All eight are beautiful. CLASSICAL: Copeland's Appalachian Spring and El Salon Mexico, by the Boston Symphony led by Koussevitiky (RCA- Victor); Brahms' Concerto No. 1 in D-Minor. Witold Malcuzynskl at the piano and Fritz Bieger leading the Philharmonia Orchestra (Angel); Beethoven's Concerto No. 4, played by Arthur Schnabel nnd the Philhar- mornia Orchestra of London, from RCA-Victor's Treasury of Immortal Performances. HOPE I<E DOESN'T MOVE—Joan FoweU, » circus performer in Am*. England, demonstrates her fnith in Cato, a mighty beast with «wd manners. She has full confidence that Cato won't hurt with food manners. She has fu~ her, bnt any drew crowd would be thrilled by such a display became they dont know how tame the elephant a. tlacktnak* It Pet DAYTON, Ohio'!*! — Mary You Hull, 18, has a pet blacksnake named George. She says she would rather have the 5-foot George wrap himself around her arms than hold a kitten or puppy. Mary Lou has been interested, in .reptiles since she was old enough to hold a garter snake. A clerk-typist by dny, Mary Lou studies herpetology in her apare time. Her father, James T. Hull, says, "The whole family is enthusiastic about George." Her mother, a little less enthusiastically, says she tclerates George around the house but "draws the line" at pet alligators.
