Sunny Gale - Wheel Of Fortune: The Singles Collection 1952-61 - Sunny Gale was one of the vivacious and talented girl singers to come to the fore on the US music scene during the early '50s. She took advantage of the burgeoning medium of TV to have a string of hits before her style was superseded by the advent of rock 'n' roll in mid-decade, although she recorded successfully through into the '60s as she adapted her approach for the evolving market. This 55-track 2-CD collection selected A & B sides of her releases during this era on the Derby, RCA and Warwick labels, chosen to include at least one side of just about all her singles from this era. It features all her career hits, including her No. 2 R&B and No. 13 chart debut with "The Wheel Of Fortune" with The Eddie Wilcox Orchestra, and her other Top 20 pop hits "I Laughed At Love", "Teardrops On My Pillow", "A Stolen Waltz", "Smile" and "Let Me Go, Lover". She was a talented and versatile interpreter of songs across the pop spectrum, admirably underlined by her performances here with some of the top arranger/conductors of the day - Hugo Winterhalter, Ralph Burns, Joe Reisman, Sy Oliver, Sid Bass, Leroy Kirkland, Stan Applebaum and others. It's a substantial and entertaining showcase for a singer who very much typified her particular era of pop.
