Nino Tempo - Purveyor Of Balladry: The Best Of Nino Tempo On Atlantic

In the early 1960s, Tempo joined the in-demand group of studio musicians known as the Wrecking Crew. It was at a Bobby Darin recording session that Nino met Atlantic co-founder Ahmet Ertegun for the first time, and a lifelong friendship began. Ahmet Ertegun signed Nino and his sister, April Stevens, to a recording contract with Atco, a subsidiary of Atlantic. So successful was Nino and April’s 1963 duet, “Deep Purple,” that the chart-topping, million-selling gold record scored a Best Rock and Roll Recording Grammy® in 1964. Omnivore’s compilation is drawn from the best of Nino’s two Atlantic studio albums.
