Pam Garner was a stylish singer of the late 50s and early 60s who made just a few records.
She is a vocalist much to my own taste - unmannered, sensitive, in tune. It is unfortunate that she only made two LPs - this and one two years later for Columbia. The market for pop singers changed in the post-Elvis era, and that change only accelerated when the English invaded in the early 60s. The result was the market for traditional pop singers dried up, at least on records.
Pam Garner shows up in Billboard as early as 1953, and disappears right after her Columbia LP came out. So not a long career, but one that is worth your attention.
Garner also recorded two singles for Coral. One backed "Me and My Shadow," which is on this LP, with something called "Pinch Me Baby," which can be found on YouTube. Pam linked up with the Les Brown band for the other 45.
