Title: Help Yourself To My Heart
Artist: Helen Forrest
Catalogue No: SEPIA 1025
Barcode: 5055122110255
Release Date: 13 October 2003

In 1939 Helen Forrest joined Benny Goodman as vocalist and her stay lasted 20 months before she moved to Harry James. It was here that Helen was first teamed with Harry's male singer, Dick Haymes, and when both of them were later pursuing solo careers, the Decca label sold millions of their discs in a series of recordings they made together between 1944 and 1946.

Helen went solo in 1943 but strangely – other than the successes she shared with Dick Haymes – she never achieved the chart hits – of which she had been the featured vocalist on many - that many of her contemporaries did. Yet though in the early Forties she had topped the polls as best female vocalist for several years, her career drifted upwards and downwards.

Many of the tracks here are making their first appearance on compact disc and were recorded during a five year period at the end of the Forties. They consist of a variety of popular tunes of the time including some that were featured either in films or stage shows. Songs from the movies of Betty Hutton and Betty Grable rub shoulders with tunes by Irving Berlin from his current show of the day, ‘Miss Liberty'.
