Re-Posting Some Old Stuff

The entertainment industry was just learning media distribution a hundred or so years ago.  Music publishing and home performance was the main way people heard songs.  Occasionally there was a traveling show that passed through town.  Of course, if you lived in a big city, you could go see a vaudeville show or a revue whenever your pocketbook allowed.


This here's a 1956 album of material performed by two of the folks what performed it in the early 1920s or so.





01 - Opening: That's Entertainment     
02 - I Love A Piano
03 - Soft Shoe Song
04 - Lady, Play Your Mandolin
05 - Lullaby Of Broadway
06 - Toot Toot Tootsie Goodbye
07 - That Teasin' Rag
08 - Song And Dance Man   
09 - June
10 - There's No Business Like Show Business
