Peg La Centra - The Complete Recordings 1934 -1937
Baldwin Street Music
Most of the music was recorded by Artie Shaw back in 1934. But the earlier material comes from Shaw aggregations from an earlier band which was not a very successful venture.
Nonetheless, Shaw, La Lentra and the music survived, all to go on to greater heights.
Ted Ono, a veteran producer of music from this era, continues to issue this fashion of music on his Baldwin Street Music label. Like some of his other releases, this is a mixed bag, with the high quality material fortunately far overriding the less enthralling material. You can visit Ted and Baldwin Street Music at http://www.baldwinstreetmusic.com . Finally, there is no scrimping on the amount of music presented on this 2-Fer, more than 2 hours and 15 minutes on the CD.
