This is a promising but ultimately unsatisfying pairing of songs from two classic s musicals, one of which Flying Down to Rio opened the screen careers of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers ; the other Hollywood Hotel closed out the Warner Bros. Hollywood Hotel does include the first appearance of the movie mecca anthem "Hooray for Hollywood," as opening title music that features the clarinet of Benny Goodman as well as singing by Frances LangfordDick Powell, and Fridays Child - Nancy Sinatra Featuring Lee Hazlewood And Frank Sinatra - The Hit Years "Scat" Davis.
Unfortunately, Out Of City - Galactica fidelity is so poor on these tracks that they're of value solely to the most hardcore fans -- the textures are harsh, the volume levels are uneven, the editing is sloppy, and even "Sing Sing Sing" is a pretty poor excuse for a collectable track, with a terrible drop-off in volume midway through, although the performance clip and a properly remastered source would be extremely impressive.
This just isn't it. The Flying Down yo Rio material is in better shape -- it may well have been lifted off of the digitized audio track of the laserdisc release -- and it has a certain degree of early-'30s charm, mixing music Let That Be A Lesson To You - Various - Flying Down To Rio • Hollywood Hotel Vincent Youmans and some jaunty conducting by Max Stiner, who even takes the studio orchestra for a tango number.
Fred Astaire turned in far better vocal performances on his formal recordings of the era for Brunswick, but this part of the score is at least listenable on a technical level, and good fun.
