Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
The 1940s was a monumental decade for the United States. Amid World War II, economic recovery, and the start of the Cold War, American music provided a soundtrack to a generation. The Music Classics line from MPI Home Video attempts to offer the chance to relieve the era with a ten-volume series of restored film footage featuring performances by many of the 40's most revered artists. The second installment in the series, Music Classics, Vol. 2, includes the music of such luminaries as Benny Goodman, Nat King Cole, Lena Horne, Sarah Vaughan, and Louis Prima.
