"I have listened to "Sweet Hollywaiians" and found the music excellent,exactly to my taste!
I was surprised how good the music was,in fact!!"
"If I was to order my favorite choices from the Victor Record Catalog 1927, that stack of shellac 78 rpms would have sounded like this! Tom Marion and the Sweet Hollywaiians have lovingly and skillfully rendered a choice selection of Hawaiian, Italian, Tinpan Alley and more...
my heartfelt praise and appreciation for making beautiful old music live long."
