The Jam Cellar has arrived on Yehoodi.com! This has been the most fun Lindy Hop related project that I have worked on. It’s been a huge pleasure to work with such an enthusiastic and creative group of people. I can’t tell you how cool it was to suggest idea after idea to these people, who would the...

There was a previous thread about this topic, but I'm to lazy to dig it up. I think we determined that "After You've Gone" is one of those songs where most versions will change tempos from slow to fast or vice versa.

The second one is "Baby Don't You Tear My Clothes" by the Harlem Hamfats. Are you sure it's the Harlem Hamfats? Sound quality seems much too good to be from the 30s. I think it might be. Another DJ found remastered Hamfats recordings and the difference is astounding. I think she found the...
