Travelin' CDs, North Carolina Fall 2016-- Part 4: Jumpin' At the Record Shop


This was a real different one for me.  It took me back to the 1940s, when there were not even albums or 45s.  You'd get your music on those old, heavy, clunky 78s

The CD is named after a song by Slim Gaillard by the same name where he lists most of the performers on this 20 song CD.

I recognized the majority of the songs, some of them I am listing here:

Marie--  Tommy Dorsey
Night and Day--  Frank Sinatra
Unforgettable--  Nat King Cole
Begin the Beguine--  Artie Shaw
Minnie the Moocher--  Cab Calloway

Plus, we even had some Western swing by Bob Wills and Spade Cooley.

There were even several I didn't know like:

Cotton Club Stomp--  Duke Ellington
Ciribiribin (They're So In Love)--  Bing Crosby
Swingin' Uptown--  Jimmie Lunceford

The songs ranged from 1929 to 1951.
