Recorded September 30, 1956 released in 1957. Columbia CL 968



Jo Elizabeth Stafford (November 12, 1917 July 16, 2008) was an American singer of traditional pop music and jazz standards whose career spanned the late 1930s through the early 1960s. Stafford was greatly admired for the purity of her voice and was considered one of the most versatile vocalists of the era.

Married Band Leader Paul Weston in 1952

In 1966, Stafford went into semi-retirement, retiring completely from the music business in 1975. Except for the 1977 Jonathan and Darlene Edwards version of "Stayin' Alive," Stafford wouldn't perform again until 1990, at a ceremony honoring Frank Sinatra.
Stafford won a breach-of-contract lawsuit against her former record label in the early 1990s, which won her the rights to all of her old recordings, including the Jonathan and Darlene recordings. Following the lawsuit, Stafford, along with son Tim, reactivated the Corinthian Record label which began life as a religious label the deeply religious Paul Weston had started. With Paul Weston's help, she compiled a pair of Best of Jonathan and Darlene albums, which were released in 1993. In 1996, Paul Weston died of natural causes. Stafford continued to operate Corinthian Records. In 2006, she donated her library and her husband's to the University of Arizona.
She died in Century City, California of congestive heart failure on July 16, 2008 at the age of 90.
