This is the music that was popular when my grandparents were young. The quality of the audio is far below modern standards, but still good enough that you can listen to and appreciate the music.

The music of this era does not have the variety of later decades. The tempo is surprisingly quick - Charleston type beat - and relentlessly 4:4. It does not have much subtlety, syncopation and suchnot. African Americans became a presence in American popular music around the 1930s, so their mark is not noticed in the earlier of these tunes.

Good tunes and lyrics seem to have staying power. Some of the titles I recognize are "Beautiful Dreamer," "Makin' Whoopee!" "Singin' in the Rain," "Let a smile be your umbrella" and "Dream a little dream of me." It is interesting to contrast the original with later renditions, in the latter case that of the Mamas and Papas.

Bottom line - buy this and listen to it a few times just for the education. The music is pleasant and different, though it is unlikely to make you give up more modern recordings.
