Description by OLDIES.com:
This compilation contains twenty-five more recordings that the Ozzie Nelson Orchestra made for the Brunswick and Vocalion record labels between the years 1934 and 1936. Until now, their music has been unheard in the CD era. But as a looking glass back to a less complicated time, when courtly love and civility and romantic fantasy, along with a good beat could chase the blues away, the legacy of the Ozzie Nelson Orchestra survives for your enjoyment.

Recording information: 1934-1936.
Before being known as Ricky Nelson's father, Ozzie Nelson was an enormously popular bandleader and vocalist playing light dance music with romantic or novelty themes. The Very Best of Ozzie Nelson, Vol. 2: 1934-1936 is a budget-priced, 25-track selection of such sentimental and downright silly tunes as "She's a Latin From Manhattan," "I'll Never Say 'Never Again' Again," "Is It True What They Say About Dixie?," and "You're Not the Only Oyster in the Stew." The future Mrs. Ozzie Nelson, Harriet Hilliard, is also heard singing on several tracks. ~ Al Campbell
