A Dutch group called the Beau Hunks released a CD recording of the Roy
Shields music used in the Hal Roach Our Gang/Little Rascals comedies.
 
The Beau Hunks Play the Original Little Rascals Music: KIC-CD-8702 (CD)
KIC-CS-8702 (cassette)
 
NPR did a short feature on it for ALL THINGS CONSIDERED last winter. I was
able to find a copy of it at our BORDER'S bookstore. They used period
instruments and recording techniques, the results are impressive.
