Just in time for Valentine’s Day–a touch of romance from Artie Shaw.
In 1939, Artie Shaw was the highest ,U.S., grossing performer–earning, in today’s money, 1 million dollars a week. Even so, his personality remained irascible and grumpy.
For comparison and contrast use only. From the French Chronological Classics CD series.
