Before Frank Sinatra, even before Bing Crosby,there was Rudy Vallee. In the 1920's, Vallee was *the* crooner, a singer whose nasal yet charming, slightly whimsical vocal style took pre-Depression America by storm. Later in the 20th century, Vallee became established as a character actor in movies, but EVERYBODY represents his beginnings as a vocal icon. By today's standards, many of these songs might seem quaint and sentimental, but put yourself back in time, make believe the past half-century or so never happened, and let Vallee take you to that over-the-rainbow America.
