Description
Evolving from the dance (or "sweet") bands of the early 1930s, the swing bands offered a vibrant combination of jazz improvisation and structured orchestral arrangements that dominated both the airwaves and the bandstands of the 1930s. The hit songs of the decade—like Bing Crosby's "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" and Harry Richman's "On the Sunny Side of the Street"—both acknowledged and flew in the face of the Depression. Classics with immense and enduring appeal, these 48 selections include "Ten Cents a Dance" by Ruth Etting, "I Found a Million Dollar Baby (In a Five-and-Ten-Cent Store)" by the Boswell Sisters, "Happy Days Are Here Again" by Ben Selvin, "It's Only a Paper Moon" by Paul Whiteman, "Stormy Weather" by Ethel Waters, "The Continental" by Leo Reisman, "Cheek to Cheek" by Fred Astaire, "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" by Mildred Baily with Red Norvo, "Marie" by Tommy Dorsey, "And the Angels Sing" by Benny Goodman, "Over the Rainbow" by Glenn Miller, "Begin the Beguine" by Artie Shaw, "Three Little Fishies" by Kay Kyser, "Anything Goes" by the Dorsey Brothers, "Lulu's Back in Town" by Dick Powell, and "Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries" by Rudy Vallee.
