Keep It Simple by Dick Haymes is the latest release from 2xhd Mastering-Jazzology Records. This is an Analog recording that has been transferred to DSD 256 by Rene Laflamme using the Merging Technologies Horus Analog to DSD 256 Converter.
Along with Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes was one of the most popular crooners of the 1940s and 1950s. Keep It Simple combines tracks from two studio sessions in October 1976 and May 1978 made under the direction of Loonis McGlohon. They include standards like The More I See You, Little White Lies and The Very Thought of You along with selections from Brigadoon, State Fair, and The Goldwin Follies.
Dave Nathan from AllMusic says "Arguably the finest singer of ballads to grace the popular song scene, with the possible exception of Johnny Hartman, this album is a testimonial to a very unique talent and to a singing style that has practically become extinct."
