t was at an unnamed record label in 1973 that the last denial took place. Either the label was not interested or they were offering a paltry sum for the master tape. According to Blossom, she said, "The hell with this!" Took her master, commiserated with her buddy Johnny Mercer, and decided to start her own label. He aptly named it "Daffodil Records" for her. Blossom was the second female artist to produce and shop her own master and the first successful female artist who headed her own record label. A year after final recording Daffodil Records released, Blossom Dearie Sings. This was because, Blossom Dearie, Sings, Plays Piano, Writes the Songs, Arranges the Music, and Produces the Record wouldn't fit on the record sleeve. However that would be the template for the rest of the Daffodil catalog. Whitney Balliet of the New Yorker supplied the original liner notes starting by saying, "Everything about Blossom Dearie is just right.(musically)" He finished by remarking, "If things go askew or do not fit into her plans, they don't exist." Blossom Dearie Sings is not just an album, but the determined effort of one of the world's most unique jazz artists to continue her career. Her way. For her fans. Around the time of this album's release Blossom played Carnegie Hall and transitioned from a nightclub entertainer to a concert performer. Thirteen more albums would follow on Daffodil as would hundreds of thousands of international miles of concert tours. All under the direction of Blossom herself. Blossom's family and Daffodil Records are proud to offer this album remastered and in stereo with four bonus tracks. Connect with us at www.BlossomDearie.com.
