Amapola (J.LaCalle) - International Novelty Orchestra (Nat Shilkret), Victor 1926

NOTE: The passodoble "Amapola" was composed in 1924 by a Spanish composer Joseph LaCalle and for almost two decades remained relatively little known in Europe. In 1941, however, the new version transcribed into a fashionable rhumba-fox rhythm and recorded for Decca by Jimmie Dorsey Orchestra (with unforgetable vocals by Bob Eberle & Helen O'Connell) made it an international evergreen.
In the slideshow are covers of two fashionable Spanish magazines from 1920/30s "Nuevo Mundo" and "Blanco y Negro".
