The Talking Machine has been around for two years now, and to celebrate we have a record featuring a band we haven’t heard since almost the beginning. We listen to Victor 18633 which features Selvin’s Novelty Orchestra performing “Dardanella” and a medley waltz of “My Isle of Golden Dreams” with “Lullaby Time”. Also: Muzak.

This week we listen to Victor 18790 featuring two sides by the All-Star Trio and Their Orchestra: “Ilo” and “Mimi” featuring a vocal refrain by Billy Murray. Also: bird/fish names.
