Notes About the Release
Best known as the musical director Tennessee Ernie Ford or Burt Tillstrom’s Kukla, Fran and Ollie television program, Jack Fascinato was also a top secret space-age bachelor. Though he cut only three albums under his name, all are mid-century hi-fi fever dreams etched into wax.

Fascinato’s independently-issued singles for KāHill and Fraternity were collected on 1957’s Arranges Things, issued by Norman Forgue’s Evanston, Illinois-based Stepheny label. Featured on the LP are the barber-wop quartet the Mellowmen and sultry exoticism from Doris Drew. Fran Allison’s liner notes boasted that “confirmed hi-fi fans will adjust their woofers and tweeters so that when they hear the bells in ‘Abada,’ they'll practically be able to see a camel train coming down the street.” Despite intense pandering, the LP managed to completely miss hi-fi enthusiasts and was quietly remaindered when Stepheny closed its doors at the decade’s end.
