Anything with "Peerless" in it is good!! lol
Early Paul Whiteman records are very evocative for the early twenties. If you want to get a little jazzier, look for the Benson Orchestra of Chicago directed by Don Bestor. These were hot pups as the Jazz Age was defining itself.
When I was a kid we had a bunch of Harry Lauder comic songs from the teens that I still find entertaining. "It's Nice To Get Up In The Morning, But It's Nicer To Lie In Bed," such things as that. "Hoot mon!"

Gertie Millar -- Moonstruck (1910)
featured in the musical Our Miss Gibbs
Moon, Moon, mischief-making Moon!
What are you doing there?
You seem like a fairy dream,
Up in the midnight air.
When I look at you I always know
You will shoot me with your silver bow.
Just as soon as the daylight's gone,
Well, it's then I feel a foolish sort of feeling coming on!
I'm such a silly when the moon comes out;
I hardly seem to know what I'm about;
Skipping, hopping, never never stopping,
I can't keep still, although I try.
I'm all a-quiver when the moonbeams glance;
That is the moment when I long to dance.
I can never close a sleepy eye
When the moon comes creeping up the sky!
Moon, Moon, aggravating Moon!
Why do you tease me so?
I think you're inclined to wink;
That isn't right, you know.
Ev'ry day I'll be as good as gold;
Doing ev'rything that I am told.
But as soon as the sun's in bed,
Well, it's then I've such a flighty little, foolish little head!
