78 Is More My Speed

78 Is More My Speed

Playing tracks by

Washboard Sam And His Washboard Band, The Lion With George Mootoo Orchestra, Savoy Dictators, Pleasant Joe with The Mezzrow Bechet Septet, Red Norvo Allstar Sextet and more.

The already sublime archive.org recently added a 78rpm audio download section, a true treasure trove of the known and not so known from th first halk of the 20thCentury, taking in pretty much all genres of music around at the time. This scoop of wonderfuless culled from the site includes jazz, jugband music, calypso, blues, jump jive and is enoughto save anotherwise crappy day.
