This collection for ukulele brings back many favorite songs and ballads from the Roaring Twenties, plus several songs taken from the notebooks of Al Brown, an itinerant performer active in the period. These songs were featured in the motion pictures The Cat's Meow and Last Call. The music is presented in lead sheet form with melody lines, chord symbols, and lyrics. Photos and artwork from the 1920s enhance the presentation. The music on the companion CD is performed by Ian Whitcomb with his various bands and orchestras.
