Humour, irony and superb musicianship abound in these lovingly restored recordings from a century ago. Iconic artists such as John McCormac and Al Jolson keep the home fires burning in both England and the United States. Many of the songs have been made well-known to this day and in these restored originals they can speak to us again as they must've done 100 years ago.
