Tammy Grimes

Kritzerland is proud to present the first release on CD, the debut album of


Featuring songs by Rodgers and Hart, E.Y. Harburg and Sammy Fain, Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Burton Lane, and more!

Has there ever been anyone like Tammy Grimes? Quick and easy answer: No. And there never will be. When she first appeared in The Littlest Revue, everyone was captivated by her unique voice, her quirkiness, her impeccable way with a ballad or a comedy song, and her brilliant comedy timing. She understudied Kim Stanley in William Inge’s smash hit, Bus Stop. Her solo debut at Julius Monk’s Downstairs at the Upstairs was a smash hit – Noel Coward was there on her opening night and instantly offered her the lead role in his new comedy, Look After Lulu, which sadly played only a short run on Broadway. But less than a year later, she was starring in a big, brassy new musical on Broadway, the show that would make her a star – The Unsinkable Molly Brown, which won her a Tony Award. From there, there was no stopping the unsinkable Tammy Grimes. She toured in Molly Brown, she was back on Broadway with High Spirits, the musical version of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, which was a moderate hit, she guest-starred on a few TV shows like Route 66 and The Danny Kaye Show, and she had her own short-lived sitcom, The Tammy Grimes Show.

In Los Angeles, she starred in two shows at the Huntington Hartford Theater – Ben Bagleys’ The Decline and Fall of the Entire World as Seen Through the Eyes of Cole Porter and Rattle of a Simple Man, which she’d played on Broadway. She won a well-deserved second Tony Award for the 1969 production of Private Lives. She also starred in Gower Champion’s legendary production of 42nd Street. She also recorded two albums for Columbia Records and, of course, she is a Kritzerland favorite, appearing on numerous Ben Bagley albums.

Julius Monk presented the show from which this recording was derived. Even at this early date, she was a completely singular performer and the songs by some of the greatest songwriters who ever lived are sung in her completely unique way.

TAMMY GRIMES is limited to 500 copies only and priced at $19.98, plus shipping.   This is a PRE-ORDER – CDs will ship by late January. As you probably know, our pressing plant has been very slow, for which we apologize and which is why we put the brakes on releases for the past eleven months. They should be back on track now. To place an order, see the cover, or hear audio samples, just visit www.kritzerland.com.  

Also note that your PayPal receipt is the only receipt you get – we don’t send out confirmations beyond that.
