5.0 out of 5 stars 1920s: great music you'll never hear on the BBC, 8 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Music Inspired By The Great Gatsby (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.
