Dick Haymes


Here is a superb collection of the finest recordings of one of the best-loved American crooners of the 40s: Argentine-born Dick Haymes (1916-1980). He was numbered among the most popular singers of the postwar period, his mellow, velvet baritone and easy style gaining him a long string of hits and fame on a par with, and for quite a period even surpassing, Sinatra痴. Retrospective痴 tribute offers Dick Haymes 53 finest recordings from the decade 1940-1950, representing the artist at the peak of his heartthrob popularity. His leap to stardom came in 1941 as vocalist with the Harry James Orchestra (I'll Get By, How High The Moon?), and during the 1943 MU recording ban he had hits backed vocally by The Song Spinners, such as his biggest smash of all, You'll Never Know also the title of this collection. Hit after hit followed backed by Victor Young: Laura, The More I See You, Where Or When. He also enjoyed a string of huge sellers in partnership with Helen Forrest, including It Had To Be You, Together and I'll Buy That Dream.

In all there are no fewer than 26 Top Ten chart successes such as Mam痴elle, The Old Master Painter, Put Your Arms Around Me Honey, That痴 For Me or A Room Full Of Roses.
