Charles Boogie

Thrift stores are open again - on a treasure hunt with all the kids. There's something to see for everyone. Among the yards of bins with vinyl, one solitary shellac disk was lying on a bottom shelf - no sleeve, but still good. A lucky find :) 

The man behind the counter didn't want anything for it, waving me through - please take it. Still, that doesn't quite feel right, so paid 50 cents for the record to 'own' it. With a nice bright label, Sonora Swing! Charles Boogie, performed by Charles Norman accompanied by Seymour's Orkester. 

Released in April 1941; orchestra's were still swinging in Stockholm.

Just played. Definitely boogie woogie - happy find! :-)
