In the beginnings of jazz and popular music recorded, many subjects related to the events of then, famous personages, animals, cities were used and excellent facts, so are the case of Titanic Man Blues recorded by Gertrude Ma Rainey and the Lindy Hops in relation to the feat of Lindbergh. But I have seen many titles of my related recordings the east, middle and far. During the first years of the ‘20, the subject of Egypt was almost a requirement in programmes of the orchestra of the moment. Recordings like Sphinx, Soudan, Palestine, etc marked the difference. In 1922 when Howard Carter found the lost Valley of the Kings and in whose place was the tomb of Tutankamon, this it was reason for hundreds of recordings in honor to the king Pharaoh. In my collection I have 3 recordings

1. -Tut-Ankh-Amen, recorded by S.S. Leviathan Orchestra (Victor record acoustic) 1923
2. -Tutankamon, recorded by the Orquesta Internacional 1926, in reverso “Tamerlan”
3.- Tutankamen, recorded by Francisco Canaro y su Band Jazz (Odeon record 1924)

Somebody has more information and recordings with these topics? wink.gif

I have Ole King Tut-ankhamen on blue label Columbia from about 1921--if I can find it, I'll add the orchestra name.

Dardanella, also from this time period, is most evocative of things Eastern.

Here's a song whose title may evoke a completely different image today than it did seventy-seven years ago:

Vamp of Baghdad -- Jack Hylton and His Orchestra (1930)

There a tune named "Sahara", I have this recording played by british band Temperance Seven (1961 or 62)
The other version is the most recently Cd played by Savoy Orpheans.

Bert Firman recorded in 1926 "While The Sahara Sleeps" from CD "Swing High, Swing Low"
