Synopsis

Product Description
"To call Harry Warren an unsung talent is both absolutely accurate and a wild mis-statement. Let me try to explain that apparent contradiction in terms. Mr. Warren has written more hits (a large number of which have become standards) than any other composer except Irving Berlin and there can hardly be a minute when one of his songs is not being sung somewhere in the world. And yet - everyone has heard of Irving Berlin - who knows of Harry Warren? Maybe this album will help to re-dress the balance... "Selecting just 17 songs from the Warren output was a daunting but enjoyable task - the problem not so much what to include but what to leave out! We hope our choice will give the listener at least some idea of the scope and talent of the man who has been called "the world's greatest unknown songwriter." -Chris Ellis, 1976 (from the liner notes of the original record, released in 1981) Enjoy these classic Harry Warren tracks sang by the late Susannah McCorkle, an American jazz singer much admired for her direct, unadorned singing style and quiet intensity.
