Dick Tracy In B-Flat



ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Recorded February 20, 1945 (not on the 15th as shown on the album) for the Armed Forces Radio Service Command Performance, "Dick Tracy in B-Flat - or For Goodness Sake Isn't he Ever Going To marry Tess Trueheart?" is one of Judy's most popular, and most readily available, radio performances. A parody with Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Jimmy Durante and more (see cast list below), this show gave Judy a chance to flex her comedic muscles. You can hear them all cracking up and having fun throughout the performance.

The show was broadcast on April 19, 1945 or April 29, 1945 depending on which source you believe.

This edition was originally released on LP by Hollywood Soundstage (as well as other companies such as Sandy Hook Records) in the 1970's.
