JN166 The Nelson Eddy Show Volume 15
December 9, 1945 – Jerome Kern Memorial
All the Things You Are
Make Believe (duet, Patrice Munsel)*
Try to Forget
* This one-hour show was a combination of two shows: The Prudential Hour in New York City and Nelson’s Electric Hour Show in Los Angeles. Nelson’s duet with Munsel was sung with him in Los Angeles and Munsel in New York. From the “Ayers News File,” 1/1/46; “Nelson Eddy, out there in Hollywood, had to do a truly miraculous job of timing to keep on the beat. Due to the natural time lag of the line, he had to listen to the orchestra and Patrice Munsel and anticipate by about a quarter of a beat his own entrances and timing.”
Due to the age and scarcity of the original non-commercial recordings, sound quality on this album may not be up to today’s standards.
