Listen: Call Me / Martin Denny MatinDennyCallMe.mp3

When I think of Julie London (see previous post), I think of Liberty Records, I think of bachelor pad music and then my trusty jukebox. The sum of those parts many times equals a Martin Denny single. Name a 50′s cocktail comp that leaves him off and you’re naming one that needs be left in the shelf.

What better than a remake of the Tony Hatch classic, ‘Call Me’. This Ramsey Lewis Trio influenced instrumental battles the Chris Montez hit version to the finish line as they both reach for that camp remake crown. It’s a tie says I.
