How many folks are still around who can remember first hand the great era of the Big Bands? The atmosphere in the dance halls must have been electrifying, to hear and see in person a band hitherto only heard through the loudspeaker of a radio or coming out of the grooves of a phonograph record. It wasn't just the bands that were exciting, there were the girl and boy singers, but particularly the girls. The three Helens: Forrest, Ward and O'Connell, Peggy Lee, Edythe Wright, Frances Langford, Marion Hutton, Rosemary Clooney and Bea Wain were just a few. Bob Hope, who had worked with many lovely girls, enthused about another after she had sung on a 'Command Performance' radio programme for U.S. Service personnel "Oh! That was beautiful, and you're mighty beautiful too". Then amidst wild applause declared "Oh, you're really pretty", he was speaking of Ginny Simms. Well, Ginny certainly was an eyeful! Ginny Simms first came to national attention as the singer for Kay Kyser's orchestra. She joined Kyser in 1934 and stayed with him until 1941, during which time he had become a huge radio and dance hall star. Going solo, Ginny maintained a high profile radio career, as well as making a number of Hollywood films. This original Jasmine CD presents a very generous slice of her talents. 26 tracks running almost 73 minutes, taken from radio, films and commercial recordings.
