• Various Artists - They Called Them Ghosts – The Great Movie Dubbers Sing

As far back as the beginning of talking pictures, movie stars who couldn't sing were dubbed by a talented group of vocalists known as 'ghost singers.' These gifted people, both male and female, had to not only emulate the voices of the stars, but also follow where they breathed and how they moved, while also trying to copy their personalities. They did all of this, and in most cases, never even got credit.

'They Called Them Ghosts' focuses on eight of the best women: Jo Ann Greer; India Adams; Anita Ellis; Annette Warren; Louanne Hogan; Nan Wynn; Eileen Wilson; and Martha Mears. Between them, they sang for such stars as: Rita Hayworth; Lucille Ball; Ava Gardner; Veronica Lake; Jeanne Crain; Cyd Charisse; Vera-Ellen; Jayne Mansfield; Kim Novak; and Gloria Grahame.

This new CD is NOT a 'greatest hits' compilation. Their most-famous songs are already available on various other soundtrack collections. This new Jasmine release focuses on the rarities and all are on CD for the first time. In addition to some actual soundtrack recordings never before released, we have also featured many performances that these 'ghost singers' performed as themselves in their own styles.

As a bonus, you'll also find some tracks by Joan Crawford herself in a duet with her dubber India Adams, and even Marilyn Monroe in two duets with Eileen Wilson.
