I keep finding things that would be perfect for Vintage Pop, if that site were actually a going concern at the moment. Anthony Lane has an overview of Barbara Stanwyck's career in the current issue of The New Yorker. I discovered a new CD compilation series featuring music from 1890-1920. And, most of all, I've been overwhelmed by the quantity of good material on YouTube.
For example, here's a handful of videos I found this morning through casual browsing. The first few simply show scenes of 1920s recreational life (primarily dancing) while set to some jazzy tune or other. The last couple focus more on the Charleston (a popular dance step) and on a couple of my favorite songs from that era. ("Caldonia" is actually a big-band song from the mid-1930s, but so what?")
The Jazz Age 1920s
The Roaring Twenties
To live in the 1920s
The 1920s - The Charleston
1920s Charleston compilation
Fascinating Rhythm sing-along
Louis Jordan - Caldonia
Though I'd love to be sharing clips like these, and writing about them, I guess I'll have to be patient, to just wait until I have time to focus on more than just a few sites.
