This is an excellent CD of music from the 20s and early 30s.
S Donahue
Great song selection, and the sound quality is remarkable considering when the songs were recorded and the technology of the time.
Jeff H.
Every song is great, and the quality of the sound is surprisingly sharp, considering many of the songs are nearly a century-old.

I write this from the viewpoint of a longtime jazz banjoist and career recording engineer. If you like your jazz HOT, this is a fine collection. I find the quality of sound outstanding, likely a combination of excellent condition source records and optimum use of modern restoration methods. Of course this was the dawn of electric recording, and you can almost FEEL the excitement this newfound clarity must have inspired in many of these players. Most of the arrangements are wonderful: the sharing & interplay between the musicians is often joyous. What an experience it must have been to hear these bands live, I have a feeling they were quite loud & exciting to behold. And the tempos! Most range from jaunty to breakneck. You'd have to be dead not to leap up and dance to that! I used the track list to check on some of the bands I favored and bought an early Ted Weems CD & others. The only sour note is the complete lack of liner notes & credits...who did the excellent restoration, for example? This CD remains my favorite 20s collection.

This is an excellent CD of music from the 20s and early 30s. I have noticed that many CDs offering music of this era seem to pick a lot of the same songs. This is present here, but only to a minor degree. I do think that music from the 20s should be here, and music of the 30s should be on another CD. Otherwise, this is good.

I thoroughly enjoyed this cd. It is exactly what it says it is. It was masterfully created to include wonderful old songs from a past era. I was so impressed, I suggested it to a friend of mine who is a film historian and television personality. That I would recommend something to him is rare as he has just about every media relating to old Hollywood. Anyone interested in the sounds of the 1920's and 30's won't be disappointed in this album.

If you like music of the 20s and 30s, this is a must-buy item. I have many CDs of that era, but this is by far the most complete selection of tunes I have found on a single disc. Every song is great, and the quality of the sound is surprisingly sharp, considering many of the songs are nearly a century-old. My personal fave song on the CD is "Girl Of My Dreams" by The Blue Steele Orchestra, an absolutely divine classic. For aficionados of 20s/30s music -- and for the amazing price of less than ten bucks(!!) -- this is an outrageously great purchase. Highly, highly recommended.

I bought this CD from Amazon.com to put music in the background of a DVD that had pictures from the roaring twenties and this was "the tip of the iceberg. So glad I was able to find this. Thank you.

If you crave the old 78 rpm record sound, this is it in CD format. Love the old songs my mother used to hum and sing. Interesting bit of musical history.
