COVER NOTES

Review by Charles Spencer in The Spectator:”The splendid nostalgia label Past Perfect, which specialises in music of the Twenties, Thirties and Forties, has also come up trumps with a splendid album called Vintage Christmas including festive hits by the likes of Fats Waller, Nat King Cole and a particularly enjoyable ‘Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town’ featuring Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisteres.  You can order online at www.pastperfect.com or phone the lovely Kathy, who deals with mail order requests on 01869 325052.  While you’re about it request a copy of its superb double CD Jazz Age!  It’s the best introduction to early jazz music I have come across and features a huge variety of artists from Jelly Roll Morton and Bix Beiderbecke to Basie, Ellington and the splendid Muggsy Spanier.  For recordings this antique, the sound quality is amazing and I can think of no better way of ensuring a cool Yule and a swinging Christmas.”
“The more I get, the more I want, it seems.”
This very Nineties sentiment comes from Jelly Roll Morton’s composition, ‘Doctor Jazz’, recorded by his Red Hot Peppers as far back as 1926. Morton was inclined to boast about his encounters (and success) with the opposite sex, but it is safe to assume from the rest of the song’s lyrics that this time he is referring to the music itself.   To hot jazz, in fact.   He seems to be saying that the more of this marvellous stuff you hear, the more you will want (and need) to hear.   Well, amen to that!

  1. Mr R

    At this moment I am listening to your Jazz Age – the sound quality and the selection are both superb! I had many of these items on 78s, many moons ago

  2. Mr S

    I recently purchased the Jazz Age double album and found it exceeded all my (high) expectations. In addition, the sound quality, presentation and packagaing were all superb, not to mention the excellent service. What more can I say? PS The Gigli CD also was first-class
