Tony Martin (1913-2012) was a popular crooner of the 1940s and 1950s whose deliberate delivery and romantic ballads were more in keeping with vintage movie musicals than the currents that would shape the pop music of the last half of the 20th century. He made his first hit record in 1938, Now It Can Be Told. After serving in the Navy in WWII, Martin had a brief but fairly successful stint on Mercury from 1946 to 1947 that helped him get his career back on track; he moved on to RCA and enjoyed many pop hits over the next decade, including “There's No Tomorrow” (1949) and “Kiss of Fire (1952), which reached numbers 3 and 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. He performed with considerable success on the cabaret circuit with his wife, dancer-actress Cyd Charisse, who he was married to for 60 years. He also appeared on the big screen, most notably in Till the Clouds Roll By (1946). Toned on right edge. Light smudge marks on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
