1926 Contrasts

by Jon Pytko

I find it odd, to say the least, that Goldkette's winter 1926 sides, notably "Dinah," have some warmth to them, and yet those from the fall are, well, rather pedestrian in comparison.

How did something like "Dinah" get through in the first place?

That said, I love waltzes, and "Hush-a-Bye" is among my favorite waltzes by a '20's recording group. I would have loved to hear that live, just as much as "My Pretty Girl."
