Manufacturer Description

In the "hep" rhythm of her own Swingster voice18-year-old Margo depicts the restless lives of young people living on the verge between the Great Depression and WWII. As Margo attempts to escape from the limitations of small town life and the desperate struggle of her eccentric family to survive she becomes the recorder of universal struggles of young people in a world which, as she puts it, "No one is quite sure what will happen next." Artie Shaw once said, Swing is … a frantic and somewhat crazy mood." SWING captures the personal way in which young people lived and experienced that mood.
