The first-ever compilation of Lucy Ann Polk's recorded works from 1944 to 1956, a whopping 54 tracks, culled from 5 different record labels!

This comprehensive collection includes all of her hits with the bands of Bob Crosby, Kay Kyser, Tommy Dorsey and Les Brown, plus two previously unreleased sides with The Town Criers and an incredibly rare 'Music Survey Recording' that was only issued to disc jockeys.

Aside from her commercial releases, this set features a generous sampling of her Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) recordings that heretofore were only heard by servicemen during WW II.

Featuring the classic jazz arrangements of George Duning, Skip Martin and Jerry Fielding.

Includes a detailed discography packed with recording dates, matrix numbers and songwriter credits.

Voted the top 'Girl Singer' in Downbeat's yearly reader poll for 4 years in a row during the early 1950s. At the same time she was in the top 15 of Metronome Magazine's poll of female singers.

A long overdue tribute to an under-rated vocalist from the glory days of popular song!
