Found this last night... A British psychedelic rock adaptation of Lewis Carroll's famous poem "Jabberwocky". The songwriter and singer here later went on to fame in country music under the name Hank Wangford apparently.


Oldiesmann

A great rendition of the classic "Bye Bye Blackbird" by the always talented Peggy Lee

Oh, I do love Peggy Lee.  Have most of her LP albums!

Oldiesmann

Found this gem last night. Apparently the Nazis decided that if swing music was going to be popular, they should use it to their advantage... They made dozens of recordings with "Charlie & His Orchestra" while using popular tunes to offer commentary on the current political/war events. In this one they take a jab at Theodore Roosevelt.



Oldiesmann

A funny song from 1918 lamenting what would happen if alcohol was prohibited in the US (which did happen from 1920-1933).


Oldiesmann

Here's a classic from the 1950s. This was the second biggest hit for the group, peaking at #27 on the charts here in the states. Their biggest was "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie", which peaked at #7.

In 1950, Spike Jones teamed up with comedy duo Homer and Jethro to offer this humorous take on the opera Pagliacci...

My all time favorite Peggy Lee, Fever!

Spike Jones was always fun to watch. I seem to particularly remember he did something with The Harmonicats on the Ed Sullivan Show. Can't find it. Maybe I am remembering wrong.

One of my all time favorite classical pieces played by The Harmonicats. I have never heard this rendition before, so it is a delight to find it.
