Eydie Gorme - Amor (1964)

I love Eydie Gorme. I grew up listening to her "Amor" and "More Amor" albums. Every weekend, my mother would play those two albums while she baked or did school work (she was a teacher), and I listened while I played with my Barbies or cut pictures out of teen magazines. When my mother passed away in 1993, I (being an only child) inherited her record collection, thus adding to my own already nice-sized collection. I still listen to these albums, and they bring back wonderful memories of being a little girl with not a care in the world. "Amor" is my favorite of the two, so I am posting it in honor of Eydie's birthday yesterday (August 16). If there is enough interest, I will post the "More Amor" album later.

Track listing for Eydie Gorme - Amor:

Side 1:
1. Piel Canela
2. Y....
3. Nosotros

I love Eydie Gorme, too. Do you have any of her other albums?

Esther said...

Yes! I have "More Amor", "Eydie in Love", and "Love is a Season" - all of which I plan to post eventually. Thanks for the comment!

HELLO AGAIN,
I AM LISTENING TO THIS NOW!
VERY NICE.
IN MY LAST COMMENT I MENTIONED ABOUT ROBERT GOULETS CATS AND THEN I READ YOUR STORY ABOUT YOUR CAT AND THE SONG YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE WELL IT MADE ME FEEL CLAIRVOIANT, WRONG SPELLING I AM SURE SINCE I AM TIRED AS ANY CAT COULD BE AT THIS HOUR. THEN I READ AND SAVED YOUR INTRODUCTION ON THIS ALBUM ABOUT YOUR MOM.
WOW . ITS A MIRICLE YOU COULD SURVIVE AFTER HER PASSING. ITS A LONG STORY BUT NOW MY MOTHER AND I LIVE TOGETHER. I AM SO HAPPY TO BE WITH HER. A VERY KIND WOMAN, WONDERFUL WOMAN.
ANOTHER STRANGE THING HAPPENED I SAW THAT PICTURE OF YOUR LOUNGE (GIRL WITH CATS IN ORANGE ROOM) A FEW DAYS AGO SOMEWHERE ON SOMEONES BLOG (BUT NOT YOUR BLOG) AND I COPIED IT TO MY CAT FILE.
AND HERE I AM AT ITS OWNERS.
YOU SEEM SO SENSITIVE FOR A LEO,SURE YOU ARE NOT PART LIBRA LIKE US?
I AM DOWNLOADING THE SUMMER MIX NEXT.
I AM NOT SURE IF I CAN EMOTIONALLY HANDLE 46 VERSIONS OF YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE BUT I WILL SING THAT SONG LATER TODAY TO MOM AND TELL HER ABOUT A BLOGGER NAMED ESTHER.

My father passed away recently. I brought his albums home with me and started playing Eydie Gorme. I'd forgotten how much I loved this album. Every time I listen to it, I feel my dad with me. Looking for More Amor digital files if anyone knows where to find it.

Esther said...

Hi, LDelgado,

I'm very sorry to hear about your father's passing. I hope you find comfort in listening to this album. You can also find the "More Amor" album on this blog - just click on the Eydie Gorme label and you'll see all her albums that I have posted.

Thanks for listening!
Esther

I LOVE Eydie Gorme!
Thanks for posting this!
I'm planning on making a vinyl sharity blog also, and I'm gonna try to post her album Don't Talk To Strangers.

P.S. I'm a Leo too! I was on Wikipedia, and apparently Eydie Gorme is an August 14th Leo.
Cheers!

I just found an Eydie Gorme' vinyl album "Love Is A Season" in fantastic condition. Open, but plastic still protecting the cover, 25 other albums from that era in a collectors set.

Can anyone let me know if it is of any financial value.
I'll trust you all: andrewminty51@gmail.com
