The Take Five Sessions cover

The release that coincided with Betty Johnson’s return to professional singing. After a thirty-year hiatus from the international stage, Betty Johnson made a triumphant return to the spotlight in 1993, charming the Manhattan cabaret audience and brightening stages beyond New York. 

To observe her re-introduction, Bliss Tavern Music delved into the Betty Johnson catalog and released The Take Five Sessions, Volume One, a collection of her performances from the late 1950s and 1960s.  This set features Betty’s flattering consideration of many American standards:  “September Song,” “You Stepped Out of A Dream,” and “You Go to My Head,” among them.

In the 1950s and early 1960s, before her three-decades-long absence from show business, Johnson ranked among the most prominent female vocalists, appearing all over radio and television and raising bundles of hits up the pop charts.  During this period, she proved her capability on whimsical love songs and serious standards. 

The Take Five Sessions, Volume One confirms that talent, and makes us wonder why she ever left.
