    One thing to keep in mind, I think, is that the music that most of us Loungers would like from that ear is probably jazzier and racier than what would have been most popular then. What the average American would have enjoyed back then would sound awfully frumpy to most of us nowadays.

    Anybody who collects 78s knows what people were *really* listening to circa 1915-1920: Joseph C. Smith, Henry Burr, the Peerless Quartet, Prince's Orchestra, Cohen on the Telephone, and Billy Murray. And that fat rapscallion Paul Whiteman, but only if you were really up on the latest thing.

    In the teens, *every* Victrola had a copy of Alma Gluck singing "Carry Me Back To Old Virginny" somewhere near by, and in the late twenties, everybody owned Moran and Mack's "Two Black Crows, Part One and Two." These two records survive by the hundreds of thousands of copies today, and there is no accumulation of pre-WW2 78s in any American attic, garage, or basement, that doesn't include both of them.

    In particularly zippy households you might also find the Six Brown Brothers, the pioneering saxophone vaudevillians - almost always their 200,000 selling Victor, That Moaning Saxophone Rag.

    Playing catch-up to Paul Whiteman was Chicago's Isham Jones Orchestra, no show band but a sonorous ensemble with a great dance beat.

    While I am not suggesting any one artist , and with my swing collection topping the 600 c.d's (and I could suggest quite a few) , I have "found" alot of artist from listing to the 1920's radio network .
    They are on 24/7 and play music from 1900 to 1949 and they have thousands upon thousands of tiles.

    Eddie Cantor: 'You'd be Surprised'. contains what i can only describe as a 'blatant musical innuendo'. funny stuff.


    as well as frumpy (which to me is visual rather than auditory) i would add: sentimental, corny, semi-operatic, plodding and creepy.
    all of which are good if you're in the right mood. ;)

    "Franco-American Rag" by Jean Schwartz from 1910. Schwartz was a famous songwriter at the turn of the century. He and William Jerome authored one of the most famous songs of that era--"Bedelia"--which was recorded by just about every singer of that era at least once. I know Arthur Collins and Billy Murray did. But I'm sure others did as Len Spencer, Dan W. Quinn, Harry MacDonough, S. H. Dudley (there were actually two--a white one and a black one), etc. Ragtime is my favorite music from this period. Contrary to what people might think, it was NOT early jazz. Ragtime and jazz coexisted and borrowed from one another. Then you have cakewalks and even the ragtimers and cakewalkers were not sure of the difference.
