Pop Music: The Early Years 1890-1950

A few weeks back I had much fun with the 2-disc compilation Pop Music: The Early Years 1890-1950 that I found on Bravo Juju. The title of the compilation pretty much explains it all. Disc 1 starts with the "Washington Post March", which may scare you off because of it's poor recording quality and because, well, it's a march. But stay in there. The second song "King of the Bungaloos" already sounds a lot better.

Other favorites are:

  • How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm? - Nora Bayes
  • Black and Blue - Ethel Waters
  • Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man - Aunt Jemima
  • Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition! - Kay Kyser & His Orchestra (who doesn't love a song with a title like that? :) )
