Marjan (or Maryan) Rawicz (1898 – 30 January 1970) was Polish. He studied in Poland, and in Vienna under Richard Robert, and also studied law at the University of Krak√≥w, playing the piano at seaside resorts in his holidays to make ends meet.

Doctor Zhivago..320.Kbps

A trip to the cinema now to hear the music of "Maurice Jarre"....these soundtracks to me only make sense if you have actually seen the if you have not seen it then it will just be a collection of music....The main them "Lara's Theme" just about manages to get into most of the tracks....But as a selection of film music its fine !!

Before we go shimmying down to the 30's lets pop into the Tijuana Rhythms and have a jig about !!

4. Bean Bag

Harry Roy & His Band..320.Kbps

Thanks AJ for some music from the 30's & 40's to get your feet tapping !! says that these are the original recording from way back beginning 1933....somebody has done a good job of transfering them from what I imagine would be old shellac 78's....unless of course they have the original masters !!.....I think that the 30's would be to early for Tapes so I imagine that they would have recorded directly onto a master Disc !!....anyway just listen what musicly turned people on in the 30's !!

10. Nobody's Sweetheart

The Three Degrees..320.Kbps
