Cool old time music

Uncle Neptune's Song Factory is a treasure trove of old time music preformed by Mr. Neptune himself with his ukulele. The blog also sometimes features mp3s of the original 78s. From the Uncle's introduction "I have only to offer to you the songs that help make my world more sweet, and it is my hope that it may do so for you."

Sweet. If you like Uncle Neptune, you might want to check out the beautiful Janet Klein (whom I want to marry). Unfortunately, like Ms. Klein and the redoubtable Ian Whitcombe, Uncle Neptune's spirit is willing, but his voice is weak, weak, weak. I wish that some even moderately capable singer would take up this material in the charmingly immersive way of Klein, Whitcombe and Neptune.

I suppose it's "Whitcomb," isn't it? Without the e.

Outstanding. I love it. I have large collection of music from the 1920s, and am familiar with the era: this fellow does a fantastic job of staying true to the original tunes. Great post.

Just watched "Sweet & Lowdown" and "See You in My Dreams" has been stuck in my head.
