I've always enjoyed the great background music in the Laurel & Hardy shorts. Is it available on any commercial recordings?

The music is performed by the Beau Hunks

Sample

Gangway Charlie


Go to Amazon.com and search for their name to get and listen to all their CDs

i.e.
Just One Of The Many Beau Hunks Cds

On the Fade In CD by the Crazy Rhythm Hot Society Orcestra, they "fade in" and "fade out" on the Laurel and Hardy song, Honolulu Baby, and they fade in when Hardy is talking in the midst of the song. That's the best I can do. laugh.gif

hi

just want to say a word about that great backround music-marvin hatley the composer was in my opinion
a genius.he wrote some really great music.it was so perfact for stan and ollie.you can get a look of hatley
as he plays piano during the nightclub scene in "sons of the desert".the song he plays is honolulu baby al-
so a hatley tune.

Look out tho (Le) Roy Shield wrote a lot, if not most, of L & H's soundtrack music. I think Hatley replaced him as musical director at some point.

I do remember a story in IAJRC Journal stating that Marvin wrote the "Cuckoo Song" as an hourly time signal for a radio station in Culver City, CA, about 1930.
