Mel Carter - The Other Standards

Mel Carter, the man responsible for giving the song "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me" a place in pop history, began his career in Cincinnati at the age of four when his grandmother held him up to the microphone in a penny arcade recording booth.

It was 25 cents well-spent; the unpolished performance had an unmistakable element of raw talent in those grooves.

Well, he kept grooving and it's time to celebrate the holidays even more because the hit maker is back!

What's Melís latest release you may be asking yourself? His latest release bears the title "The Other Standards" and, as you Mel fans out there know, this is what Mel does best. To the newcomers in the house it's time to introduce yourself to the man with the hit-making touch and golden voice.

Standouts include "Cry Me A River" which is one of this writer's favorite songs evuh!

Another standout is... well, they all stand out, it's Mel Carter people.

2012 is near, don't "Cry Me A River" I have my copy of "The Other Standards"... So? What are you waiting for, get yours, and get it now...!
