Midcentury Boogie

BoingBoing has a beautiful little series of posts this weekend on mostly forgotten midcentury music. Country, opera, jazz and folk are all there. Archivist Stephen Worth certainly dug up some treasures. Highlights include this tap-dancing barnburner, Jimmy Dean with muppets, and a dutch-angled Leadbelly clip.
