Bal Du Rythme – Belgium At 78 RPM

This new playlist is devoted to Belgian artists, or artists who have strong roots in Belgium.
You will hear gipsy jazz, swing, dixie, big band, musette,… These tracks have been transferred straight from original 78 rpm records. The sound quality depends on condition and era of production. The records on the Belgian label Rythme released during WWII, for example, are not of the same quality soundwise as, let’s say, records pressed for Decca in the 1950s. But they hold some great music and should not be omitted.
