Here’s Vonda Kay (Word WST-8464-LP) 1969?












Take a former Miss America, give her a record deal, borrow a few Kurt Kaiser and Ralph Carmichael songs, snuggle them up in the smarmy Burt Bacharach wrappings, and ta-dah – you’ve got probably the closest Christian music ever came to a ‘60s pop diva. While she’s no real threat to Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark or Lulu, these tunes sometimes have a certain cheesy dated over-the-top Hullabaloo grooviness about them. You just might actually dig it in one of those weird moments. Back cover notes tout how she’s also an actress, a ventriloquist, a public speaker, a licensed pilot, and of course 1965’s Miss America (alas fellas, no swimsuit pics). New Kind Of Happiness is worth owning just for that ridiculous striped bell-bottom outfit she’s got on. As fluffy and white as Kurt Kaiser’s cotton candy clouds. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
