Blistered Heels by Jack Mitchell

Jack Mitchell’s latest book “Blistered Heels” – jazz and hot dance music in Australia in the twenties is available for $30.00 plus $3.50 postage within Australia; to New Zealand $10.55; the rest of the world $16.50. Sorry no credit card facilities – Australian payments can be made by cheque or postal order, overseas payments by bank draft or PayPal
Although dealing with the local scene it will be of interest to those concerned with the spread of jazz around the world. More than 100 American musicians performed in Australia in the period covered – in 1925 seven American or American led bands appeared in Melbourne for starters.
The book is 170 B5 pages, card cover, perfect bound, with a number of rare photographs.
