Avis sur l’album

The success of the 1946 film biography The Jolson Story, for which Al Jolson himself dubbed the singing voice of actor Larry Parks, brought about a major comeback for the singer, leading to hit records and a movie sequel, Jolson Sings Again, in 1949, such that the last five years of Jolson's life, up to his death in 1950, found him in considerable demand. On radio, still the dominant medium with television only in its infancy, listeners didn't see that Jolson was now sixty-something and could imagine the voice as coming from the much younger Parks, and Jolson took advantage of that, appearing frequently on the major shows. This budget-priced compilation gathers no less than 39 airchecks from the '40s, most of them very brief (24 run less than two minutes each), as Jolson reprises songs from the movies, many of them, of course, hits he scored back in his heyday in the '10s and '20s. By now, his voice is much deeper, but he is just as much the bravura performer he was when he trod the boards on Broadway.

In addition to releasing a string of successful records between 1912 and 1949, Al Jolson achieved pre-eminent stardom on Broadway, hosted several radio series, and became the first important figure of the sound-era of motion pictures. His performing style was brash and extroverted; he billed himself as "the world's greatest entertainer," and he was known for his slogan, "You ain't heard nothin' yet!" He popularized a large number of songs that benefited from his shamelessly sentimental, melodramatic...
