Vikki Carr: Superstar

[cover art]

Rather boring 1971 album with covers of popular '60s "love" songs from rather uninteresting chanteuse Carr. Includes a take on The Band's "Dixie." Re-released on CD as a two-fer in 2003 (Love Story/Superstar, Collectables 7528) together with her 1971 album Vikki Carr's Love Story (Columbia 30662).

After singing in various school functions, local groups, and Pepe Callahan's Mexican-Irish band, Carr began her professional musical career in earnest in the early '60s. Her solo debut was in Reno, supported by the Chuck Leonard Quartet, which led to a record contract with Liberty. While not gathering much attention in the U.S., her first single ("He's a Rebel") was a hit in Australia and led to numerous television appearances, and a spell as a regular on The Ray Anthony Show. In the late '60s, Carr scored three Top 40 hits, including the number three "It Must Be Him." Her American sales dwindled in the beginning of the '70s. With the release of her 1980 album, Vikki Carr y el Amor, Carr gained enormous success in the Latin music world. In 1991, Carr won a Best Latin Pop Album Grammy for her Cosas del Amor. Reta Manda y Provoca followed in 1998, and the next year saw the release of Memories Memorias.
