"Some of These Days" as Nucky Thompson peers through a boardwalk window. Tucker, in fact, is a character in the series, along with Eddie Cantor (shown on a marquee as a featured performer).
For the music to Boardwalk Empire, Music Supervisor extraordinaire Randall Poster utilized remastered 78s, and recreated music from nickelodeons making some of what you hear in the series recordings and compositions that have not been heard in a very long time. Prohibition era music is a bit of a blindspot for me right now -- but thanks to Boardwalk Empire, consider me in school.
