Rhino's Hollywood's Best series is a budget-line collection that samples highlights from the label's Turner Classic Movies soundtrack series. Each disc contains 16 tracks and liner notes from Will Friedwald, and they are excellent, affordable samplings of the music that defined Hollywood and American pop culture. Hollywood's Best: The Thirties has a number of great songs performed by the stars who made them famous, including "Over the Rainbow" (Judy Garland), "Cheek to Cheek" (Fred Astaire), "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" (Dick Powell), "Night and Day" (Fred Astaire) and "Jeepers Creepers" (Louis Armstrong).
