Update On Links

March 18, 2013 - I'm now using various file sites with varying success. With over 200 albums listed here, obviously I cannot upload everything at once. So if you're dying to hear something, please post a comment on that particular post and I will move it up in the priority queue. Enjoy!

Any posts taken down as a result of the sniveling coward will be re-upped. Check the link below for where to find them in the event that this site is unable to repost them. Don't forget to bookmark http://whereismrvolstead.blogspot.com/ in the event that the internet terrorists shut this page down.

Hollywood - Paris

A slight departure from the jazz, I like several of the collections from Chansons Actualités. In a future post I'll share the soundtracks from several of the Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire films. In the meantime, enjoy this collection of American and French tunes mixed in with "news" of the day en français. Groucho Marx's "I'm Against It" from the 1932 film Horsefeathers is fun. +

"I don't know if it's bad or good, but let's have one thing understood,
Whatever it is - I'm against it!"

Chester, since I am submitting comments indicating "Vapidshare link is now dead" (as it is for this disc) I should also commend you on your taste, diligence and perseverance in the face of annoyance. It's amazing to me that for a musical genre that by definition is not producing new work, the '30s are still yielding undiscovered gems. Kudos to you for finding some of them.

Thanks for the kind words, Malbone. For an even wider exposure to this great music, I heartily recommend listening to the various radio shows links at the left. There are some people doing fantastic work to transfer original 78s so that we can enjoy them for years to come.
