Bonnie Guitar – Dark Moon (1961)

I picked up Bonnie Guitar’s 1961 Dot Records release Dark Moon at a record show last weekend after looking for it locally and unsuccessfully for a year or two, and it’s just as lovely to listen to as I’d been dreaming.

The back of the record describes Bonnie’s voice as “haunting,” and it’s right on the money, especially on the title track.

At 94 years old, Bonnie is still alive and well, reportedly still performing on weekends outside of Seattle, where she was born.

Dreamy and ethereal, Dark Moon is the perfect album to put on when you want to sit back with your eyes closed and let Bonnie’s dulcet voice take you out of the real world for a little bit.
