Ruby Murray: Softly, Softly - Her 31 Finest 1954-1962
Softly, Softly is Retrospective’s warm-hearted tribute to the winsome Irish colleen who, at the age of 19, became a superstar and set the remarkable record of having five hits in the Top 20 at the same time. With her velvety voice, tinged with an appealing huskiness, and her hesitant charm, Ruby Murray captured the hearts of listeners to become one of the best-loved of all singers of the ‘fabulous 50s’. Our survey of her remarkable career contains all the hits, from Heartbeat through to Goodbye, Jimmy, Goodbye, together with nine favourite Irish delights such as Danny Boy and Trottin’ To The Fair. Ruby also had a winning way with evergreen standards, including True Love, Little White Lies and Charlie Chaplin’s Smile. This collection celebrates the musical legend that is Ruby Murray.
