Overview

The third, and apparently last, volume in the series is another excellent collection of females in the torch-singer tradition. While many vocal fans own collections or detailed works on a few of the performers here (Lee Wiley, Mildred Bailey, Maxine Sullivan, Connee Boswell), it's a sure bet that very few have much by Greta Keller, Ginny Simms, Jane Froman, Bebe Daniels, or Bing's wife, Dixie Lee Crosby (who, ironically, reveals a few debts to her husband). Most of the material is famous songcraft from the masters of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway, which eases the difficulty of listening to so much material by unfamiliar artists (and keeps the singers on an even keel).
