I consider myself a bit of an internet archaeologist. One of my favorite music blogs,, disappeared in a Digital Millenium Copyright Act enforcement wave. Before it was engulfed by the harsh and turbid waters of the DMCA, I rescued one of my favorite mixtapes by blog author Moahaha. He called it Soothing Sounds of Shellac For a Long Winter, but since I didn’t source my tribute from 78s, I’ve renamed it. Conjure up the spirit of yesteryear’s fête at or below.

1) Ukulele Ike - “Night Owl”

2) Cab Calloway - “Evenin’”

3) Amelita Galli-Curci - “Russian Nightingale Song”

4) Kansas City Six - “Paging the Devil”

5) Henry Hall & His Gleneagles Hotel Band - “Home”

6) Sofia Vembo - “Konta Sto Nilo”

7) Desi Arnaz - “Tabu”

8) Raymond Scott - “Moment Whimsical”

9) Six Brown Brothers - “Peter Gink”

10) Trio Vocal Hermanas Russell - “Hoy Es Tu Cumpleaños”

11) Rina Ketty - “Sombreros et Mantilles”

12) Carlos Montoya - “La Virgen de la Macarena”

13) Harry James - “Flight of the Bumblebee”
