VIDEO | Close Your Eyes, 1933

Just found this slideshow on YouTube featuring some photos of Ruth Etting that I’ve never seen before! Always cool! And it’s all set to Ruth’s version of “Close Your Eyes” a song written by Bernice Petkere, in 1933. Ruth recorded it in Los Angeles, California on September 21, 1933.
