The Cotton Club Legend 1929-1941

1985 seems to have been a good year for jazz compilations on LP. Here's a French issue that covers some of the bands who played at the famous Cotton Club in Harlem. Duke Ellington, Eubie Blake, Mills Blue Rhythm Band, Cab Calloway and more. There were other Prohibition-era clubs such as the Savoy, Roseland, Lafayette, Apollo and Connie's Inn but the Cotton Club was the place to be. Enjoy. +

if you could repost this link on megaupload that would be great, thanks. I used to love this record until it was stolen at a party about 20 years ago and i've never been able to find it since. I finaly found it on your site and rather frustratingly the rapidhsare file no longer exists... I'm looking forward to hearing this again!
