There is particular emphasis placed on the history of recorded sound in Canada.
Dance Bands
From Canada


© 2000 Canadian Antique Phonograph Society

"This CD focuses on dance bands from the 1920s, the fabled "Jazz Age", and presents a cross section of sides by Canadians playing here and abroad. The music spans the complete spectrum from straight dance music to some peppy sides to some quite hot tracks."
