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. Music Classics, Vol. 4 features the likes of The King Sisters, Artie Shaw, Tex Beneke, and Duke Ellington.
