Though largely forgotten by all but nostalgia buffs, Marion Harris was one of the most popular singers of the 1920s, specializing in a brand of cleaned-up blues that catered to a Tin Pan Alley sensibility. Living Era's 2006 compilation LOOK FOR THE SILVER LINING is arranged chronologically, giving a full picture of Harris's career. In a style that bridges blues with vaudeville and commercial appeal, Harris tackles classics like "St. Louis Blues," "It Had to Be You," "Tea for Two," and "The Man I Love." This set is a must for fans of old-school pop vocals.
