Album Remarks & Appraisals:

There are extensive notes in the booklet of this CD telling about the life of Cole Porter, how he came to compose many of the individual songs, who introduced the songs and in what venue. There is also extensive information about the pianists themselves; names like Frank Campbell Milne, Adam Carroll, Victor Arden, Herbert Clair, Ferdinand "Ferde" Rudolph von Grofe, Marshall Moore Bartholomew, Paul Rickenbach and Edgar Fairchild.

Album Notes

Recording information: 1924-1940.

There are a lot of Cole Porter collections on the market. Pierian's 2008 release It's De-Lovely! The Music of Cole Porter is a somewhat unusual addition to the pack in that it consists of remastered and newly realized player piano roll arrangements of Cole Porter compositions. The original rolls, dating from the years 1920-1940, are credited to 11 different performers. Foremost among these, quantitatively at least, are Adam Carroll and Frank Milne, with Paul Whiteman's arranger and composer-in-his-own-right Ferde Grofe spooling one of this collection's two versions of "I'm in Love Again"; Marshall Bartholomew knocking up a medley of Porter's early Yale ditties and Robert Joyce receiving the "oldest roll" award with his 1920 interpretation of "An Old-Fashioned Garden" from the stage show Hitchy-Koo. Since there are no vocalists, listeners are free to obtain sheet music and howl along with these charming old parlor piano rolls. ~ arwulf arwulf
