Hits of '48

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
1948 was a good year for tract housing developments, Cold War Politics and the House Un-American Activities Committee. Judging by the popularly acclaimed records that made it onto Living Era's Hits of '48, it was also an important segment in the golden age of the singing pop stars, during which name vocalists replaced big bands and saccharine choirs swarmed like midges over an August fen. Jazz and dance band activity did occur, as evidenced by Woody Herman's frenetic rendition of Aram Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance," Al Hendrickson and Benny Goodman's berth "On a Slow Boat to China" and trombonist Pee Wee Hunt's magnificent Dixieland hit, the "Twelfth Street Rag."

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
1948 was a good year for tract housing developments, Cold War Politics and the House Un-American Activities Committee. Judging by the popularly acclaimed records that made it onto Living Era's Hits of '48, it was also an important segment in the golden age of the singing pop stars, during which name vocalists replaced big bands and saccharine choirs swarmed like midges over an August fen. Jazz and dance band activity did occur, as evidenced by Woody Herman's frenetic rendition of Aram Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance," Al Hendrickson and Benny Goodman's berth "On a Slow Boat to China" and trombonist Pee Wee Hunt's magnificent Dixieland hit, the "Twelfth Street Rag." This compilation's pop vocal roster includes Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore, Perry Como and Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra and Frankie Laine, Margaret Whiting and Doris Day, Dick Haymes and Buddy Clark, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole. The year 1948 was packed with talented acts. Art Mooney presided over a million-selling massive singalong version of "I'm Looking Over a Four-Leaf Clover," and Jerry Wayne whistled and crooned over the marinated waltzing organ of easy listening pioneer Ken Griffin. "You Call Everybody Darlin'" was a number one hit for Al Trace, composer of "If I Knew You Were Comin' I'd've Baked a Cake." Also included on this spectacular sampler of hit recordings made between March 29, 1947 and June 4, 1948 are the Andrews Sisters performing the "Yodel Polka" with its profound and highly intelligent refrain of "Toolie Oolie Doolie." This all-American girl group also found time to collaborate with Danny Kaye who imitates Woody the Woodpecker while being accompanied by several jolly harmonica players.
