Are You Making Any Money?

This is a very nice collection though I've yet to see the PBS documentary for which it was the soundtrack. Urban legend has it that Gloomy Sunday by Billie Holiday inspired hundreds of suicides, though this has never been substantiated. The Chick Bullock tune here was the impetus for beginning my collection, I now have roughly 350 of Bullock's known 740 or so recordings. Also included is an example of Henry Ford's attempts to instill "culture" in his poor, uncultured, poorly educated and (often) immigrant workforce. As if they had no culture of their own! Enjoy. +
