This is the CD that Chris released in London at the Harry James Society in 1998. It sold out and this is it's second pressing. Chris interviews every vocalist Harry worked with from 1939 to 1952. All except Dick Haymes who we lost in 1980 and Frank Sinatra who was unavailable for comment. This CD includes Helen Forrest's last interview! Helen was in the hospital at the time of this production, she had suffered two strokes. Just two weeks out of the hospital she agreed to say a few words about Harry, which only lasted about 90 seconds! You can hear this touching tribute by clicking here. We lost her shortly thereafter. Others interviewed and interspliced with their hit records are: Buddy DiVito, Connie Haines, Buddy Moreno, Kitty Kallen, Marion Morgan, Patty Andrews and an outtake with Doris Day! Also included are words from Harry himself that appear for the first time on this CD. They are taken from an interview Chris did with Harry backstage at The Westbury Fair in 1981. One of his last interviews as well. This CD is a limited edition, so grab one while they last. Comes complete with liner notes and shrink wrapped.
