AVID Entertainment is proud to launch a new label with a very special release celebrating the centenary of one of Britain’s greatest international stars.
AVID EASY presents Jessie Matthews: A Centenary Celebration.
Quoted in 1936 Irving Berlin called her the “female Fred Astaire. America worships her”. And he should know as the legendary Astaire was the favoured interpreter of some of Berlin’s greatest songs! Jessie Matthews truly was an international star at the height of her fame in the ‘30’s and to make this release something special we have included no less than 16 items never previously released. This is an absolute treasure trove for the millions of fans both young and old alike who still regularly subscribe to her thriving Appreciation Society. Following a recent article in the Daily Mail by Michael Thornton author of Jessie Matthews: A Biography and writer of our excellent sleeve notes expect demand to be high from her many fans throughout the world!
