On Boardwalk Empire, Prohibition is a time of corruption, violence and really painful cures for gonorrhea, but musically it was a clever and lively era; many of America’s greatest songwriters peaked in the 1920s. On this second volume of Boardwalk songs, a variety of crooners and warblers are paired with the redoubtable revivalists Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks.

The HBO series "Boardwalk Empire" is rich in so many ways it reflects the events and thinking of the times. Moving that forward 90 years is tricky. Recording then was not the full-spectrum medium we enjoy today. So you expect music from the series to be different. The producers struck a nice balance between total authenticity (which would have been tinny and scratchy) and giving us what recording can do today. I bought this based on the music under the closing titles of the HBO broadcasts. The stereo mix here does not sound as good as the . track of the video. I suspect it is because of the hyper-compressed sound typical of today's CDs. I have friends who collect the original 78's of that era, and those recordings are more listenable and enjoyable.

Two very different grande dames provide some of the album's biggest highlights: Liza Minnelli is just as brassy and sassy as expected on "You've Got to See Mama Ev'ry Night (Or You Can't See Mama at All)," while Patti Smith plays against type on her playful rendition of the sad-sack chestnut "I Ain't Got Nobody. Performances such as these make Boardwalk Empire, Vol. 2 more theatrical than the first volume, but fans will be pleased to hear more songs by Stephen DeRosa, whose turn as Eddie Cantor is one of the show's highlights
