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.

Irving Berlin

What I really like about ASV is that their 'various artists' collections included many of the familiar songs by the composer, but not necessarily by the artist most associated with the hit. For instance, I'm Putting All My Eggs In One Basket, We Saw The Sea, The Cheek to Cheek were all popularized by Fred Astaire in his films. But instead of another cd compilation of the usual suspects, these tunes are covered by the Boswell Sisters, Harry Roy and his Orchestra, and Lew Stone & His Band respectively. And because ASV is based in London, we gain access to artists outside the US. Hi-res scans of front and back are here. Let yourself go! +
