Elsie Janis and Ethel Levey Two Americans in London - (CDR57)
Elsie Janis and Ethel Levey were two american vaudeville stars who moved independently to London during the period of the Great War. Their style and songs brought a new vitality to the London scene. Ballin' the Jack introduced the Foxtrot dance to Britain, whilst Give me the moonlight is completely of its time with verses as might be sung by German Aviators and Irish Americans amongst others.
