The Rudy Vallée Discography

Front Cover
Greenwood Press, May 1, 1985 - Music - 190 pages
Here is the first complete listing of all the recorded works of Hubert Prior Vallee, one of America's most versatile and accomplished entertainers. Kiner chronicles Vallee's work from its infancy in 1921 through his most popular era in the late 1920s and early 1930s into the war years of the 1940s and on into the next thirty years. All known Vallee recordings that were ever issued or intended for issue as commercial releases are listed. Also included are unissued recordings, private recordings, radio broadcasts and soundtracks, as well as "private issues" that were produced in sizable quantities. Each entry contains as complete a citation of a disc's production as possible, including: date, type, and location of performance; orchestral accompaniment with number of instruments and vocalist; song title and songwriter's name; and record size/rpm/label name, catalog number/matrix number, and take designation. The book contains illustrations, a preface by the artist himself, as well as indexes for Valle songs, 78 rpm single records, LP records, conductors, costars, musicians who worked in the Connecticut Yankees, and Vallee's motion pictures and radio series.
