Ethel Smith took immediately to the complicated Hammond electric organ when it was first introduced in the 1930s, and made full use of the wonderful sounds which could be coaxed from it. Always a fan of Latin-American rhythms, she discovered a tunewhilst working at the famous Copacabana in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro and in her hands that tune, "Tico Tico", became an international hit in 1944. She appeared in several films and during the 1950s established herself as an album recording artist. Her workhas been sadly neglected for many years, but this generous Two-CDs-for-the-Price-of-One, 44 track CD will revive memories of her consummate skill. "Monkey On A String" became a particular favourite to more than one generation of young Americansbecause of its use as the theme song for a childrens' TV show from Chicago, "Garfield Goose And Friends', which ran frm 1952 to 1976.
