As this video was favorited 3 times I'm not deleting it for now. However I noticed a problem, stopping the video after a little more than 1 minute. Please check the reposted version:
The Red Dandies was one of the many pseudonyms used by Adrian Schubert, extremely prolific musical director and bandleader. However, if one considers a "bandleader" to be the captain at the helm of a somewhat regular group of individuals working together, Schubert was no bandleader at all. Every record he made came out under another band name; many of the same individual players were hired for some of these sessions as well. The number of aliases is staggering, so it is almost impossible to know who really was behind the credits. To make confusion complete, finally, it should be noted that several of the pseudonyms were used for different bands - not just Schubert's (in itself not very stable) orchestra. This great record was made in 1930.
