This series came out in 1990 in four separate volumes Capitol/SM Special Products and, at the time, was just about the only place you could find original Forties music. Since then, of course, there have been many more - and infinitely better in terms of sound quality and original renditions - compilations made available. The knocks against this volume may be found at tracks 2, 9, 11 and 12. Whereas they present original hit versions of the other 8, these four are re-makes.

In the original May-June 1941 # 1 version of Green Eyes (Aquellos Ojos Verdes) by Jimmy Dorsey & His Orchestra as Decca 3698, vocalists Helen O'Connell and Bob Eberly handle the lyrics as a duet, each singing in their turn at a different tempo. This version, recorded much later at Capitol with the Harold Mooney orchestra, while not a bad rendition, lacks the excitement of that first effort. Helen Forrest also sounded better on the hit take of I Had The Craziest Dream which reached # 1 in late 1942/early 1943 when she was singing with Harry James & His Orchestra (Columbia 36659). I have no idea as to where and when this version was recorded.

That applies as well to each of Why Don't You Do Right? and Jukebox Saturday Night. In Jan-Feb 1943, Benny Goodman & His Orchestra scored with the # 4 Why Don't You Do Right? thanks to the vocalizing of the inimitable Peggy Lee (Columbia 36652), while Jukebox Saturday Night was a Dec 1942-Jan 1943 # 7 for Glenn Miller & His Orchestra with vocals by Marion Hutton, Tex Beneke, and The Modernaires (Victor 1509). The renditions here were done later, with Jukebox Saturday Night re-recorded by Tex Beneke & The Miller Orchestra and The Modernaires sometime after the war following Miller's death.

Released in 1987 and sold exclusively via a 2-minute TV commercial, STAGE DOOR CANTEEN is a unique four LP set that draws from the MCA, CBS and RCA archives. The first two companies' songs are shuffled together on three 9 and 10-track discs with a generic wheat-colored HEARTLAND label, while 15 from RCA are on that company's black special products label. All are original recordings. There's no tampering with the mono sound, no heavy filters.

Audio quality on the first three records is wonderful, very high output. Because the RCA disc has more songs, levels are necessarily lower, but not drastically. Source material condition is with two exceptions very good. "Wing and a Prayer" shows some surface anomalies while "I'll Never Smile Again" is dubbed from a worn 78. (I've heard other earlier LPs with the Dorsey track that have it in the same only-fair condition. Perhaps no clean 78 of it exists in RCA's holdings?)

There's no liner notes or booklet with this set, and the playlist doesn't provide as much artist info as mine below. For example, on the album, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas" is credited only to Bing Crosby.

[2:41] I'll Get By (As Long As I Have You) - Harry James & orch. w/Dick Haymes
[2:39] Ac-cen-tchu-ate the Positive - Bing Crosby w/the Andrews Sisters & Vic Schoen's orch.
[2:19] Comin' In on a Wing and a Prayer - Song Spinners
[2:30] Swingin' on a Star - Bing Crosby w/the Williams Bros. Quartet & John Scott Trotter's orch.
[3:06] To Each His Own - Ink Spots
[2:32] Praise the Lord And Pass The Ammunition - Kay Kyser & his orch. w/Glee Club
[2:36] (There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover - Kay Kyser & orch.

Stagedoor Canteen: Music Of The War Years, Volume 1 (1941-42) has great music from the early 1940s on it even if the CD is a bit too brief for my tastes. However, the quality of the sound is very good and the artwork is great even if it is standard for this CD series. As another reviewer correctly notes, this CD first came out in 1990 and it was indeed one of the earliest CDs to give us quality 1940s music that was very popular back then. Many of these songs remains rather catchy even in our times; and I always enjoy listening to this album when I get the chance to do so.

The album starts with The Andrews Sisters harmonizing very sweetly on "(I'll Be With You In) Apple Blossom Time." "(I'll Be With You In) Apple Blossom Time" is a most romantic tune and the music that accompanies their singing fits in just perfectly with the vocals. Their voices are wonderful to hear! Helen O'Connell also does great justice to "Green Eyes;" this may be a remake of the original version but Helen still performs this with a lot of class. The brass is used to great advantage on "Green Eyes." We also get what was a huge, huge hit for Freddy Martin & His Orchestra entitled "Tonight We Love." "Tonight We Love" is a fine instrumental number that is executed with such style and seemingly effortless grace. Of course, we know it wasn't really all that easy--but giants like Freddy Martin had so much talent that it always carried them and their band mates through.

"Cow Cow Boogie" was a big hit for Ella Mae Morse; she sings this very well. Ella Mae Morse had excellent diction which certainly made her singing all the better and that's grand. Just as was the case with "Green Eyes," "Cow Cow Boogie" also uses the brass very well in the musical arrangement.
