Nights at the Roundtable with Barbara Ruick and her 1951 outing for MGM, Serenade To A Lemonade.
Continuing our look at 1950's Pop with Hollywood 1950's up-and-comer Barbara Ruick and one of the very few singles she recorded for MGM Records in 1951. Long a staple in the Pop music diet, the crossover of Hollywood names with the recording studio had been around as long as movies and records were being made, going back to the days of Rudolf Valentino, who managed to make one record during the course of his brief career.
And so it was Barbara Ruick's turn, and the end result was this sultry little number Serenade To A Lemonade which made a brief appearance in 1951.
It didn't make much in the way of chart action, but probably didn't hinder her career either and the likelihood this recording has been reissued seems a bit remote. It's a breezy footnote in the crossover annals of Pop Music and Hollywood.
