Mindy Carson sang on Paul Whiteman's 1940s radio show before hosting her own radio and television programmes throughout the 1950s. After a slow start with the Signature and Musicraft labels, Mindy’s recording career improved when she signed to RCA where her rendition of "My Foolish Heart" reached number 6 in the national charts, beating stiff competition from many other versions. At RCA there were other chart success "Candy And Cake", "A Rainy Day Refrain", "Lonely Little Robin", all included on this CD release amongst the 27 tracks, most appearing on CD for the first time. Moving to CBS in 1952 Mindy achieved further success with "Tell Me You’re Mine", also featured here, and "Wake The Town And Tell The People". At CBS Mindy's duets with her label mate Guy Mitchell proved popular with the British public and she performed in Britain in the mid 1950s. While in London she was invited by Lew Grade to star in an hour long television special for ATV called "The Palladium". During this time she was one of the busiest "supper club" entertainers in America. After the hits stopped Mindy switched career to theatre work. When "South Pacific" was revived on Broadway, Richard Rodgers hired Mindy to play Nellie Forbush and she went on to star in another musical, "The Body Beautiful". From then on there were few records but plenty of musicals and even straight acting. Mindy last appeared on stage in 1967 in the play "Dinner At Eight". When that closed she retired, and lives happily on in Florida.
