ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eddie Cantor was number one in every area of his immense career. He started in vaudeville and became a major star of the Ziegfeld Follies. He began recording in 1917 for the Victor label and made records throughout his entire life. Some of his hits include "Makin Whoopee,""Ida,""If You Knew Susie" and "Ma! He's Makin Eyes At Me." He became the top rated radio show in 1931 and had a show right through the 60s. He discovered such stars as Dinah Shore and Eddie Fisher. He started the March of Dimes and made billions for charity. He became a movie star with his films for Samuel Goldwyn such as "Whoopee,""Kid Millions,""Palmy Days,""The Kid From Spain" and "Roman Scandals" (where he gave Lucille Ball her big start.) He wrote a few songs including "Merrily We Roll Along" (the Bugs Bunny cartoon theme!) He wrote many best selling books including two autobiographies "My Life Is In Your Hands" and "Take My Life" (now back in print thru Cooper Square Press.) He was given an honorary Oscar in 1957 and died in 1964.

Grateful for Superb Transfers From What I Presume Are Lacquers
I herewith commit this second act of contrition for forgetting that I 've this and other superbly engineered CD set for X years. I found them the other day & kvelled while double tasking an audio-related
technical project and once again hearing these disks. In contrast to the CRAP often perpetrated by Radio Sprits, the lacquers were tracked properly. No noise obsessed (aka manic,
inept, sophomoric noise reduction was applied). All that could be better than these versions would be
hitching a ride in the Doctor's Tardis and listening in the studios' control rooms.

EYES WIDE OPEN AT CARNEGIE HALL
Eddie "BANJO EYES" Cantor telling and singing his life story at Carnegie Hall. From his early days on the streets of New Yorks Lower East Side to his prestigious nights on the greatest Broadway stages, you will be fascinated by the warmth and talent of this inspiring legend of 20th century show business. Sit back, relax and enjoy the funny stories, the great music and the histroy of how modern show business developed by the one and only Eddie "Makin Whoopee" Cantor.

Great nostalgia. Great introduction to the work of Eddy Cantor for those not old enough for nostalgia.
