Thanks! Share it with your friends!
“Loch Lomond” (Traditional, Daniel Zanes), 1937.
Maxine Sullivan – vocals
Claude Thornhill Orchestra
Scotland will never forget you, Maxine
Thanks for posting this original version. I'm partial to her 1955 version, though. It's got a hipper swing, and her voice in it is perfect. (She's good in this one, too. Just sayin'. Lol.)
oh, I'm just back from an all day bike ride to the bonnie bonnie banks o' loch lomond. They did look bonnie against the september evening sky, I must admit.
The real swing, cats. Plus Claude Thornhill!
Thanks for remembering this highly talented, but oddly neglected singer of the swing era (and Claude Thornhill was no slouch either!)
Just finished a late 50s novel by Herman Wouk that referenced her doing Scottish songs. Nice pipes and arrangements.
Thank you for an American Jazz Classic…!
Maxine Sullivan superb voice and style!!! I just got to know her in 2014. Thanks for posting !.
simplement magnifique, ça sent bon le soleil et la vie simple et douce !
Why am I just seeing this comment after 3 months? Thanks for commenting ~ always good to hear from you!
Always one of my favs. My mother, a Brit, would sing this around the house back in my childhood days.
You made a wonderful tribute to a talented singer!
I got to see the Loch 12 years ago. I'll be thinking of you there with a single malt toast of my own to you, Maxine, and the Loch in July. Bon voyage.
Great singer. I'm going to Loch Lomond in July. I'll toast a wee dram or two to beautiful Maxine. Thanks for the track.
Just bought her record!!!
@3investigators Some of the best music of the 1920s -30s, was being recycled from the 1800s. . . .and a lot of the music that people think is a wonderful new composition today has been revived and resuscitated from at least a century ago. Never would have thought Loch Lomond was so old tho. Thanks for stopping by and chatting. PH01
@3investigators Old is right, I think it was recorded by various artists as far back as the early 1900s.
comment on it
Her 1984 "Cotton Club – Arlen & Koehler" album on Milan records – is quite fantastic.
Man, she was absolutely gorgeous, wasn't she?? Beautiful voice, beautiful face, beautiful being…wonderful!
