What's the strangest, most foreign place you've ever been? If you're French, maybe Guatemala; if you're American, probably Canada. But have you ever been to . . . 1928??!!
Okay, some of these things are probably from 1936 or so - but honestly, at this distance, isn't that sort of like trying to tell Tajikistan from Uzbekistan? This is music from a totally different universe, when people played music themselves, for their friends & family , at home, and if it was recorded, well, "somebody got lucky, but it was an accident".
Now here's the weird thing about this foreign country I'm taking you to - although it's a different planet from the one you grew up on, as soon as you get there you will feel at home like you never have before.
Mysterious! My best guess as to why, is that the past is where we all came from, & it's somewhere in our DNA to this very day. Get back!

I don't know the music, but I can say that they don't make song titles like they used ta. Looks like a heck of a de vivre good time.

Once I visited 1929 in my Wonder Years time machine. But you just had to go one better didn't you? Pah!
Great times, wonderful music..

took a left turn at 1933 once and spent a week in 1928 and a good time was had by all.

Even my dad didn't visit 1928, he had a short vacation in 1929 before settling in to enjoy the rest of last century. Looks like a mighty fine cast, wish I knew more about the players.

Shades of "O Brother, Where Are Thou" in this rich mix! Without songs like these, we wouldn't have gotten rock & roll. This is the REAL deal and definitively American.

No one does 1928 like you, kind Sir! The banjo guy looks out of place.

Bullseye! You really hit the mark on this one Joey, I LOVE this! Another fine musical excavation by one of AOTMs finest archaeologists.
