Product Description


On 6 October 1927, the movie industry changed for ever. That was the day on that The Jazz Singer, a largely silent film with synchronised musical inserts starring Al Jolson, opened in New York. The Talkies (or Talkers as they were originally known) had arrived. In the rush that followed to make sound films, everyone churned out musicals--more than 200 in Hollywood alone by 1930. This disc features original performances from some of the most popular and important film musicals of the period 1927 to 1938. Jolson himself is here singing Mammy from The Jazz Singer. So is the phenomenally popular pairing of Jeanette Macdonald and Nelson Eddy with their "Indian Love Call" from Rose Marie. Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Judy Garland ("Dear Mr Gable"), Mae West ("I'm No Angel"), Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, Shirley Temple--the stars of those early years can be heard together with several now forgotten names such as Cliff Edwards and Harriet Hilliard. The transfers from 78s to digital stereo by Australian sound engineer Robert Parker using CEDAR are excellent. --Richard Fawkes

5.0 out of 5 stars The great stars of the past shine brighter then ever before! 21 Jun 2001
By VAL R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In the 1930's stars not only had to act, but they sang and danced too. This CD is full of classic performances by such movie musical legends as Fred Astaire, Ruby Keeler, Bing Crosby, Harriet Hilliard(of Ozzie and Harriet), Mae West and many others. This was an era where the line between pop and jazz was paper thin, and many of these stars were backed by first rate jazz oriented dance bands, and many of these performers such as Sophie Tucker, Cliff Edwards and Fred Astaire were able to swing right along with their hot backup bands. These stars sound as though they recorded these songs yesterday thanks to genius Robert Parkers digital stereo impressions. Some highlights include Sophie Tucker singing the classic "Some Of These Days", and Fred Astaire swinging "Bojangles Of Harlem" and Harriet Hilliard singing "Get Thee Behind Me Satan." Every track is a true gem, and they are all enjoyable. Many of these performances are rare and jazz oriented making this cd essential for anyone interested in movie musicals or classic jazz/pop singing. Another exellent release from Louisiana Red Hot Records.
