      I’d never heard this version before. Quite a find! The “good old days” when listening to seven minutes of music meant you only had to flip the record once!

    2. Helian Says:

      A lot of this old music has been turning up in video games lately. There’s a great version of “Bei Mir bist Du Schoen” in “Bioshock,” by the Anderson Sisters I believe.

      Oops, I mean the Andrews Sisters. It was before my time.

    4. John Burgess Says:

      Love Benny Goodman. Hate this song, no matter who tortures it. It could have been a great hit in 17th C. Eastern Europe, but not since then.

    5. Lexington Green Says:

      Classic response.

      Jazz fans, as a species, cannot just like what they like, and be happy about it.

      They also have to tell you, without being asked, that what you like is shit.

      Sorry about that… comes with the jazz gene, I guess.
