Product Description

F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic American novel has been worked and reworked by Hollywood over the decades and 2013 sees a brand new interpretation by Baz Luhrmann (Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!) Featuring a staggering all-star cast, this new interpretation is set to be one of Summer's biggest blockbusters. This brilliant 2CD set shines a spotlight on the music of the era of flapper girls, art deco and the Charleston, a decade of optimism and excitement as the world emerged from World War 1, before plunging in to darkness once more as World War 2 beckoned. Features I m Gonna Charleston Back to Charleston, Yes, Sir, That s My Baby, Happy Feet and many more.

Format: Audio CD
The phrase "The Jazz Age" was coined by Scott Fitzgerald in his 1925 novel "The Great Gatsby", by which time the musical form to which it referred was well-established. So the music he heard, and the life-style of its adherents, inspired the novel, rather than the reverse. But ignore the lack of logic in the title, because this is a package that can be welcomed almost without reservation. Delta has done a wonderful job of assembling four dozen tunes that demonstrate the diversity of the popular music on offer in the Roaring Twenties. It embraces not only outright jazz but also both American and British dance orchestras of the day, and for good measure there's a rare French recording of "Charleston Dolly". The only number that sounds incongruous in this company is the introspective piano solo "In The Mist", which owes more to the impressionist composers. Sound quality is rich and detailed, but the reissue would have benefited from a more detailed tracklist, including dates. For example, the full title of the Al Jolson track is "Home in Pasadena" and he was accompanied by Isham Jones & his Orchestra, but given the price that's a minor cavil. What's for sure is that this epitomises the spirit of Fitzgerald's novel far better than the anachronistic soundtrack of Buz Luhrman's film.

Format: Audio CD
I find many of the songs on this double-CD inspiring and uplifting. Oh, how bright must have been those dancing nights in the decade before the depression-ridden and war-threatened 1930s. So many tracks catch the ear and the feet and have one humming the tunes all day. Al Jolson - Pasdena; Whispering Jack Smith - Sweet Annabel Lee; Crazy Rhythm; Bix Beiderbecke - Singing the Blues; Sweet Sue [now I understand all those Beiderbecke enthusiasts]. I have decided that the 1920s is my favourite musical decade. Now finally should this music be so strongly linked to 'The Great Gatsby'? Well, the novel is set in 1922/1923 and most of these songs come from later than 1923, so the answer is strictly no. Nevertheless, I hope masses of people buy this CD and discover the joys contained therein.

This is a great list of songs for what I wanted, which was music of the era for a 20s film night. The crackling and hissing on the sound track does not put me off as this makes it more authentic. The only problem is that Black bottom is not number 25, all the tracks move up a number here until you get to number 34 where you will find Black Bottom then they return to the right numbers!!! Shame.

Don't expect great sound quality from these original recordings. Next to modern tracks the sound is thin and very flat. They have not been processed or 'improved' - but they are still great to listen to.

Here's the real thing with the music that should have been in Baz Luhrmann's recent filmed feature. Regrettably, young people don't get the message, and watch a period story line with music composed for now viewers who don't understand. What's on this CD is music that did actually set the world Charleston crazy. The shimmy was another hot dance and there was always the fox trot. Short on notes in the package, but who cares, there are nearly 50 superb songs played at their best by the best of their time. I loved it.

Good music but I ordered this mistakingly thinking it was the soundtrack. This is not the soundtrack but a selection of songs to reflect the time the film was set in. I can't criticise the product or Amazon as I should have read the description properly. I have since bought the soundtrack and can confirm that it is amazing.

I got this for my 85-year old Dad, and he was quickly humming along with it, rediscovering lyrics that he probably hadn't heard in 60 years. The sound quality is very good to my ears, we played it on a JVC mini hi-fi system. It doesn't grate in any way. The other reviewer moaning about the sound is off base imo, these are 1920s recordings so it won't owe much to the hip-hop music from the recent Leonardo DiCaprio film! When it says 'inspired by The Great Gatsby', okay they mean the book, not the film and even the book was early 1920s of course, as one reviewer points out, so before the flapper era.

The tunes are upbeat and frisky, and a few (like Sweet Georgia Brown) are the kind that get played as background during Laurel & Hardy, when they are perplexedly trying to solve some kind of difficult situation and Hardy is getting increasingly infuriated with his companion.

I'll admit none of it put me in mind of The Great Gatsby book, it is really a marketing tie-in for some frisky tunes that would fit in with a retro 1920s-style Shoreditch Speakeasy vibe.
