Yellow Cocktail Music

c9c8a1e6ff632122f348ddc2aad02b67Have you ever wondered what happened to the more jazzy (and more true to the Jazz Age) versions of the tunes that bouncing off the roller coaster ride called Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby? They got released as The Great Gatsby Jazz Recordings. Yass!!

Bryan Ferry and his Orchestra redid some of the popular songs on the Original Soundtrack to this great movie. And then they added a few classics by Mr. Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton. That’s what I call sweet music.

Booktunes Series: Carnivàle – The Original Tunes

Living in Brighton wearing my workwear enjoying all retro things going on there while drinking a honey bear in my favourite pub called The Black Dove, I felt the urge to rewatch that great Carnivàle series. Amazed by all the good tunes I did a whole lotta diggin’ on the world wide web –  now it’s time for sharin’ on the Booktunes blog.

Most of the work had already been done by the sleeping Midway website, a site dedicated to the series so boorishly discontinued by HBO. It is still a great place to find info on all things Carnivàle and I would like to thank them for the incredible job they did! I took their list of tunes, reviewed it, collected the songs, added some, did all the iTunes tagging and uploaded a download for all cats ‘n alligators.

Since most tunes are in the public domain you should be ok sharing this amazing source of inspiration… Personal favourites in the Youtube vid above and the player below. Feel free to untick all organ tunes included for the sake of making this original soundtrack complete.

Season 2 coming up… Now let’s just hope the goons won’t bump us off!

I’ve got to leave now,

Erik
