Typical twenties tunes---twinkling and torchy
(4 out of 5 stars)
"These titles and performances show a fair range (at diffent times and levels)of a star performers development. "Hello Baby" done at the beginning of a 10 year "star" carreer (her real beginning went back to 1923 in Chicago)compared with her record of "Ten Cents A Dance" might lead you to believe you're listening to two different people. Ruth had the good luck to be presented with some of the finest songs of the twenties and thirties the first time around. Of course, to modern ears, the interpretaions are dated (why not?)but the charm and clarity of her voice remain fresh and bright. There were no "special effects" here. You're hit right between the eyes with what a "natural" can do. Her talent kept her on top for a good ten years and that's no small feat (then or now). If you're a performer, take a chance, listen and you might learn something about what makes for longevity in the business. If you just ache to hear good songs sung well, buy a sure thing."
Hello baby where ya been...

"This is classic, Ruth is a typical showgirl 1930's type, with an appealing and somewhat torchy sound, she's kind of a female Bing Crosby! I love this cd especially when I've got a martini in one hand, a glass of pink champaigne in the other, and a bottle of fine wine in...(oh wait I only have two hands). Well you get the idea this is perfect music to play when throwing an elegant cocktail party(which I do 2 times a month). I love throwing coktail parties in my little 900 square foot 1920's retro Californai bungalow house. This is one of the top ten records palyed at my place, I aspecially like to listen to this while lounging in my vinatge 1930's silk gown, and laying on my retro 1940's loveseat, with a great big glass of long island iced tea. Ahh the good lfe, thanks to Ruthie..."
