Tin Pan Alley Vol.1 is a collection of classic songs from the 1902s Jazz Age and 1930s Swing Era sung by Greg Poppleton. 20s 30s Tin Pan Alley Vol.1 is available as a digital download and as a limited edition collector’s CD. Only 50 copies printed. Greg Poppleton has been entertaining for over 25 years. Critics write that Greg’s vocals capture the essence of the 1920s and 1930s with uncanny accuracy. That’s because he’s fell in love with the music at age 3 and has been absorbing the vocal style since childhood. Greg will be releasing two more volumes of his favourite 20s-30s tunes in 2020 and 2021. Look out for them!
[In] Greg’s version of “The Charleston” he holds several syllables in impressive portamento slides. These, with his half-spoken, quivering vibrato, do a lot to refresh an otherwise very well-worn standard; something he achieves again and again with “Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue” and “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate.”
