1912-13 and 1927-28 music for Unexpected Danger and its sequel

Since Christopher Tobias’ last access to popular music before Unexpected Danger was 1913, I thought I’d look into the sort of thing he might have heard. These are what I came up with. The Peelenium links are original recordings from the time period chosen to represent their time-periods in a millenium celebration (1999).



Here’s the Peele entry for 1928.


I’m finally finding sources of the music itself, which is helpful.

Audio track for “I Hear a Thrush at Eve” (1913)


Found at Audio Archive (https://archive.org/details/audio), which sorts recordings by date.


Given how long that last link is, I hope it works!

If only I had this when I was writing Unexpected Danger!
