"It's funny how I know Hildegarde now that she has been gone for almost 3 years. Hildegarde was the leading first lady or queen or Dame of the Cabaret circuit. Anybody else who followed her had a tough act to follow. The voice is stunning, smooth as silk, and it would be wonderful to see her in a recorded video or film of her singing voice with gloves and fantastical outfits with long gowns, hats, gloves, etc. We don't have anybody close to match Hildegarde's power as a leading cabaret singer. When you listen to her, you just feel like dancing or in a better place. I just can't believe that I never heard of Hildegarde until now. I wished that I knew her then. This compilation is her original mono recordings from 1935 to 1944 with big bands like BBC Dance ORchestra, Carroll Gibbons and his Boy Friends, Mantovani, etc. Hildegarde will always be remembered because of her contributions to the art of cabaret singing where it's intimate atmosphere."
