With two bands on board the liner, there was no shortage of musical entertainment on The Titanic.

With this very special release commemorating the 100th anniversary of its sinking, we imagine the songs that would have been played and sung based on popular tunes of the time.

These are the ORIGINAL ‘black wax’ cylinders featuring the original artists performing their best sellers.

With an original essay by Canadian writer, Johnny Vallis, a specialist in music of this era, and full track details and mini biographies of the artists, this is a handsome,  impressive and timely release which will transport you back to a very different time of Muisc Hall (Variety) that no longer exists.
