Old Songs of Love

From beaten down blues to fingersnapping happy-go-lucky swingtunes, the old songs were all brutally and sometimes also funnily honest when it came to love, or the loss of it, as this small selection hopefully shows.

Al Jolson & Matty Malneck's Orchestra - After you've gone
Benny Carter & his Swing Quartet - Waltzing the blues
Jimmy Dorsey & his Orchestra with Bing Crosby - In a little hula heaven
Count Basie & his Orchestra - Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Billie Holiday - What a little moonlight can't do
Don Redman & his Orchestra - Watching the knife and fork spoon
Louisiana Rhythym Kings - Pretty baby
Lucky Millinder & his Orchestra - Big fat mama
Wilton Crawley & his Orchestra - You oughta see my gal
Harold Boyce & the Harlem Indians - Wille Willie don't go from me
The Dixie Stompers - Hard-to-get Gertie
Goebble Reeves the Texas Drifter - The cowboy's dizzy sweetheart
Earl Hines Trio - Squeeze me
The Mills Brothers - You always hurt the one you love
Henry 'Red' Allen & his New York Orchestra - Feeling drowzy
Benny Carter & his Orchestra - If I could only read your mind
Fletcher Henderson & his Orchestra - The meanest kind of blues
Jed Tompkins - Yield not to temptation

Get that feeling started right HERE
