Ray Anthony enlisted in the Navy when the US entered World War II. At the age of 21 Ray was given his own US Navy Band known as 'The Dolphins' and assigned to the Pacific War Zone. The band was initially based on Midway Island, then for 8 months, at the Royal Haiwaian Hotel, Honolulu which was in use as a rest camp for submariners. At the end of the war the band was based in Okinawa. During their time in the Pacific the Dolphins performed many concerts on land and aboard warships. The tracks on this disc were performed at The Royal Haiwaian Hotel in 1945. After his discharge from the Navy Ray Anthony formed his own orchestra. The remaining tracks on this CD feature his 1946 band and include one vocal by Dee Keating, Ray’s first wife and four tracks from a 1949 American Forces Broadcast. Period Of Recordings: 1945-1949
