Here is another of the little known songbirds from the USA in 1940s and 1950s.
Everybody knows Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington.
But do you know Monica Lewis, and Mindy Carson and Pinky Winters, Beverly Kenney, and Betty Bennett?
The Japanese music lovers and record collectors know these singers and highly prize their music and collect the first original issues of the LPs these American songbirds put out back in the 1940s and 1950s and 1960s.

The three posts below this one have more on these little known songbirds. And a story of how I once found a large collection of their original LPs in mint condition.
