It is remarkable that a young Nebraskan farm girl with a severe stuttering problem would one day be called the "Glorifier of American Song" one of several titles bestowed on Ruth Etting during her career. In the 1930's she was at the height of her popularity, although all was not well in the country. The Depression had struck and financial suffering was spreading. During this period record sales plummeted, numerous labels went under and even releases by favorites like Etting became difficult to sell. It is the purpose of this collection to present Etting's hard-to-find releases from that time. Although sales were down, Etting made some of her finest records in these difficult years. Among these are All of Me, Hold Me, It's a Sin to Tell a Lie (released in England) and Whose Honey Are You? (from a very rare radio transcription). In addition we include two numbers recorded at a private session in 1958, years after her retirement one of which, After You've Gone, was Ruth's favorite song. Ruth retired in 1937 while still a popular artist. She attempted a comeback on radio during the 1940's with modest success but her time had past. Time had come for a new generation of singers.
