Novelty Tunes of the Roaring 20’s, Volume 2

Novelty Tunes of the Roaring 20s, Volume 2 is the second compilation in a series of music that reflects the euphoric feelings of that time just prior to the end of that decade.
Life was moving at a lightening pace throughout the 1920’s. The decade could be characterized by enthusiasm, confidence and optimism. Stock was being purchased “On Margin” and people were making money hand over fist (on paper, at least). The overall mood was almost euphoric. The movies had finally “learned to talk reliably”. Radio had moved from the very weak Cat Whisker Crystal Set to the vacuum tube- based receivers which had loudspeakers allowing the entire family to listen to a program as a group. The convenience of Radio ultimately had a negative impact on record and phonograph sales. By the Late 1920’s, Henry Ford had introduced the spiffier Model A into the market, which could travel at around 60 miles per hour despite the “Bumpety Bump” ride it presented to its passengers. Airplanes were routinely seen in the sky and made it appear that almost anything was possible at that time and in the near future.
Towards the close of the decade, confidence dimmed as margin calls came in with great rapidity, destroying much of the wealth that had been accumulated during the earlier halcyon years. This ultimately resulted in the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Similarly, Edison’s record business dimmed and then was completely shut-down the day before the big crash.
