What Every Consumer Should Know About James Reese Europe

Hello! We can only hope that you have become aware of - and interested in - the musician James Reese Europe through the efforts of the "blog." But we must tell you: We ordered two different James Reese Europe CDs from two different record labels only to find that they consisted of the exact same 24 tracks, all recorded in 1919, featuring Mr. Europe's 369th U.S. Infantry "Hell Fighters" Band. Based on this anecdotal evidence - which is good enough for the "blog" - these 24 tracks may very well be the only music that Mr. Europe ever recorded. So don't be like us! Do your research! Why buy two CDs when one will do? One CD is about half as expensive as two CDs! Do the math! This has been one in a series of musical tips.
