Kay Starr launched her solo career on Capitol Records in the mid-'40s and stayed with that label for a decade. Then, inshe moved to RCA Victor. In those days, albums and singles were considered to be separate markets, and the songs featured on singles usually were not included on albums released around the same time.
The selections may include such standards as "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams" and "My Buddy," songs associated with balladeers of the s and '30s, but Starr 's approach updates them to the torchy style of the mid-'50s, as she gives them the kind of melodramatic readings typical of her male counterpart, Johnnie Ray. Blue Starr is more of a concept album, the concept being songs of love gone wrong. But that doesn't keep the tempos down, nor does it prevent the singer from having a little fun here and there, her histrionics justified by the lyrics to songs like "You're Driving Me Crazy What Did I Do?
