8428Re: [RedHotJazz] Annette Hanshaw, Lee Morse and Weimar Republic music
- Feb 8, 2011Hi, Peter,
thanks for the boost... at least there are people out there that likes the
music I posted.
I only recently discovered Annette Hanshaw and Lee Morse via Youtube.... I
liked listening to Jo Stafford, Anne Shelton, Sam Browne, Dinah Shore and
also Deanna Durbin.... I admit they are not mostly from 20s but some are
Weintraub Synocapators - I would say they are part of the Weimar Republic
as I do hear Jack Hylton on the station of Weimar Republic a few times so do
Piccadilly Players.... plenty of American and British on that station as
well as Europeans....
For your mention of Hawaiian music, I agree but I found that there are other
different variations of "Happy Days are here...." also "Boulevard of Broken
dreams"..... Amazing that there are different variations of different songs
in that time period...
