• Artie SHAW and His Gramercy 5 - 'SIX STAR TREATS' - The Complete Commercially Released Recordings

Artie Shaw led one of the great bands of the "Swing Era" and from that band he formed a small group called The Gramercy 5. Having a 'band within a band' was a popular trend at the time and The Gramercy 5 were one of the best!

Presented here, spanning a period from 1940 to 1954, are what are thought to be ALL the commercially released titles by the band.

Featuring the familiar "Begin The Beguine" which became a million seller along with the very popular "Frenesi". Also included are the hits "Summit Ridge Drive" & "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".

With bonus tracks that come from The Gramercy 5's appearances on radio programmes including very rare performances on the "Radio Hall Of Fame" and "Kraft Music Hall" this is the seminal release unsurpassed by any other.
