On To The Show

For your listening pleasure, 10 short songs by the great Leroy Shield. Shield was the composer for the Hal Roach Studios in the '30s. He wrote dozens of short musical cues and motifs for the Our Gang, Laurel and Hardy, and Charlie Chase shorts. Owing to the recent deaths of Tommy "Butch" Bond and Gordon "Porky" Lee, we thought this a fitting tribute.

These numbers were recorded by Dutch Jazz ensemble The Beau Hunks (named for the Laurel and Hardy film). They are committed to reviving forgotten film music. You can purchase their records, including tributes to Shield and Raymond Scott here.
