Details

Few famous singers have, like Vera Lynn, lived to enjoy their own centenary, but one such was Bea Wain whose 100th birthday fell on 30th April 2017. 78 years before that event Bea was voted the Number One female band singer in Billboard magazine college poll of 1939 – ahead of the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Mildred Bailey! Aided by a suitably sparkling personality, she covered the spectrum of popular music through ballads, jazz and blues in a warmly expressive but understated swing style. And record buyers responded by giving her 25 big hits with the Larry Clinton band . . . every one of which is included in this, Retrospective’s centenary tribute (plus a bonus of her single major hit as a solo artist: Kiss The Boys Goodbye).
