1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
All My Love recorded by Patti Page introduced August 26, 1950
Music by Maurice Ravel, Adapted by Paul Durand, Lyric by Mitchell Parish
Orchestra conducted by Harry Geller
The towering and challenging All My Love was the second big hit recording for Patti Page in 1950 after her Tennessee Waltz. Harry Geller provided an exotic arrangement that added “eye-yi-yi’s” & “oh-oh-oh’s” to an infectious melody based on Ravel’s Bolero.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"as I recall my life, I’ve waited all my life to give you all my love"
