The name Ted Weems is associated in musical history with two major events. The first, that in 1936 he recruited into his band a young unknown singer called Perry Como, and because of this the early recordings featuring this subsequent superstar have become collectors' items. The second, because an obscure 1933 recording called "Heartaches" was picked up by a Charlotte, North Carolina, radio station in 1947 and became a million-seller fourteen years after its initial release. A selection of Ted Weems with Perry Como recordings are available on another JASMINE CD entitled "Class Will Tell" (JASCD 362), and the said "Heartaches" is contained in this very compilation. It would not be fair to remember Ted Weems for just these two facts, though. Ted led perhaps the best 'Swing' band of the 1920s and 30s, and the recordings on this CD certainly give justification to that claim.
