Marc:
I did the "Angel Eyes" comparison and I have to say you're right (even though I only used the 30-second clips for the test). Chris Connor's version is the more enjoyable to me; she's the "jazzier" one, in that she phrases like a jazz instrumentalist. June sounds more like a pop singer, although a very good one.

Jim Blokzyl

I first saw Chris Connor in Seattle with Kenton's band and when I first heard her voice I commented "I didn't know June Christy would be here!" Was I ever in for a pleasant surprise.
It seems that I enjoy her the more I listen to what she has to say musically.

I had a combo during 1949/50 in Mexico, MO. For one dance I hired Paul Cherches and he brought along Chris to sing. I Had bass, piano, Paul and me on drums. Tom Mills, Jr. St. Louis
