• Helen FORREST w. Artie Shaw - Volume Two - Sweet And Simple

On 11th July, 1999, Helen Forrest died of heart failure at the Motion Picture Country Home & Hospital in Los Angeles - she was 82. Thus 'The Voice Of The Big Bands', which sustained many a grieving heart through the later Depression years and the Second World War, was stilled forever. Born Helen Fogel on 12th April, 1918, in Atlantic City, her childhood was not a happy one. Her father had died in the great influenza epidemic which rampaged through America in the year of her birth, and her mother's subsequent remarriage resulted in a stepfather best confined to fiction. Published in 1982, her autobiography (actually co-written with Bill Libby), "I Had The Craziest Dream", chronicles the sad story. The family moved to New York and Helen eventually found refuge with a neighbour. Her natural singing talent surfaced and in her later teens it enabled her to make some kind of living working with local bands and performing on radio.

Also Available By Helen Forrest JASBOX10, JASMCD2545, JASMCD2550.
