Buddy Clark was one of the most popular and successful crooners of the 1930s and 40s and was ubiquitous on radio as well as being a prolific recording artist during the late 40s and enjoying a string of hits during that era. Singing baritone, he gained success 1934, with Benny Goodman on the Let's Dance radio programme. In 1936 he began performing on the show Your Hit Parade, and remained until 1938. In the mid-1930s he signed with Vocalion Records, having a Top 20 hit with Spring Is Here. The only reason that he does not rank alongside his contemporaries at that time like Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Dick Haymes as being one of the top vocalists of the era is that he died tragically in a light plane crash in 1949 at the age of 37. He was a fine vocal stylist, best-known for his easy-going pop recordings although he equally at home with big band and jazz material. This 48-track 2CD set comprises selected A- and B-sides from his releases across the complete 15 years of his recording career, featuring early recordings from the late 30s with various orchestras, including Benny Goodman, Freddy Martin and Johnny Hodges, which included several big sellers, and then from his solo recordings for Columbia after his war service. During that era he had 15 Billboard chart hits, including the No.1s Linda, with the Ray Noble Orchestra, Peg O’ My Heart, and Love Somebody, a duet with Doris Day. It also includes his No.3 duet hit with Dinah Shore Baby It’s Cold Outside.
Reviews For The Buddy Clark Collection 1934-49
In Tune (Issue 327) – Gerry Stonestreet
“This being a two CD set and comprising 48 tracks it is sufficiently comprehensive in tracing his early career in the thirties up to the end of the forties. The 20 page booklet accompanying this release is crammed full of discographical information about the recordings as well as providing a biography that serves an excellent track commentary as well, making this an essential purchase for Clark fans and anyone curious to discover more about a now sadly neglected talent.”
