Sings a duet with Pinky Tomlin, One Way Ticket To Your Heart. 1940
Martha Tilton was probably best known as Benny Goodman’s songstress.
She was initially billed as the Sweetheart of Swing before becoming better known affectionately as The Liltin’ Miss Tilton.
Goodman kept Martha busy and between October 1937 and the summer of 1939, he placed in excess of thirty recordings on the American Top 20 of which Martha’s vocals were featured on 27 tracks including two chart-toppers.
