The Best Years of Our Lives: 1938

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Every year has its memorable songs, and 1938 was no different. This set collects some of the most popular from that year, including "Thanks for the Memory" by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross, "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" by Ella Fitzgerald, Artie Shaw's "Begin the Beguine," and "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" by Bing Crosby. Also here, for some reason, is a 1949 radio adaptation of the movie Jezebel starring Bette Davis.
