Update On Links

It's Only A Paper Moon

The fact that this was never re-issued on cd is an incredible shame as it is probably one of the best soundtracks of all time (and a great movie, too). It has a very good selection of tunes from the likes of Paul Whiteman, the Boswell Sisters, Bing Crosby, Leo Reisman, and Jimmie Davis (though from 1941 it fits well musically). This rip is from 1973 LP long out of print, but --- wait for it --- an import version cd is going to be issued on April 14! The re-issue will apparently include some restored versions of Django Reinhardt to pad out the cd. As I haven't seen the film recently I can't recall if Django's music was part of the movie or not. Enjoy. +
