This album presents the original sounds of the Roaring Twenties, as played by the famous California Ramblers during 1925 to 1928. They were one of the consistently reliable dance bands of the '20s, playing "hot" music of a very high order, and what is more, playing it in strict tempo a good ten years before we understood the term in connection with ballroom dancing.
