Overview

This release on Archeophone Records is part of the Phonographic Yearbook series, with each edition featuring the biggest hit records of a particular yesteryear. 1913: Come and See the Big Parade contains 24 such songs and a booklet with various pictures, graphics, and extensive liner notes, making the whole package a sort of musical encyclopedia for that year. While the sound quality is less than stellar (not surprising given that it was 1913), the music still shines through. The songs and the artists are unfamiliar for the most part, but they quickly grow on you. There are the deep vocals and somber tone of Alan Turner on "Till the Sands of the Desert Grow Cold" (the popularity of which had much to do with America's fascination for the Persian world at the time), the silliness of Ada Jones singing ."..and he knew just how to row, he was a rowing Romeo" on "Row! Row! Row!," the happy upbeat marching melody on the instrumental "Too Much Mustard" by Prince's Band, and Al Jolson turning in an overly dramatic rendering of "You Made Me Love You." Not to be missed is the forgotten Irving Berlin song "Snookey Oookums," performed here by Billy Murray, with such classic lyrics as "For goodness sake!/Don't keep us all awake!/With your snookey, ookey, ookey, baby talk!" 1913: Come and See the Big Parade covers an array of styles from sentimental and silly to ethnic (such as the Irish songs by Chauncey Olcott and Charles Harrison) and timely.
