5.0 out of 5 stars I've been happily transported into another era, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vintage Charleston (Audio CD)
I'm glad to state that I enjoyed all tracks on this sublime collection and my feet were constantly wagging in rhythm to the tunes being played. A lot of these recordings reminded me of the music that I heard when watching the comedies of Laurel and Hardy as a child. So you could say that these original recordings of the 1920's took me back to my nostalgic past of the 1970's watching Stan and Ollie. I'm thinking of doing something at Christmas with a 20's theme and this cd with a couple of others will aid me in whatever I do. But I digress...

I have to say that as much as I enjoyed the opening track "Charleston", I thought it would have been better without the strange vocal. Does another purely instrumental version exist? And I hope I haven't commited sacrilege by posing the question.

Among the instrumental tracks there are some charming vocal additions; "Don't Bring Lulu, My Cuties's Due at Two Today, I'd Rather Charleston, Lucky Day, The Blue Room" and "Because My Baby Don't Mean Maybe Now" in particular are simply exquisite.

A passing comment on the superb production on this disc from Bygone Days. The clarity of the instruments and vocals is stunning when you consider that these original recordings are nearing 90 years old. You can hear the background hiss on some of the tunes which add to the authenticity of these recordings, but there are no crackles - every track plays smooth.

If you want something different to add to your collection then treat yourself to music from another time, and buy this musical treat. I'm off to buy a Fedora...
