MathGeek,

I think I have at least one of the original 78s where Teagarden is present, though I don't recall that he's very audibel. I'll try and check and get back with information in a few days. Unfortunately I can't make digital transfers of my 78s, but I might be able to get it onto oldfashioned tape.

I bought a CD by this group when I was in Prague a few years ago. Indeed a great band that captures the original sound and style of the 20s very well!

By the way, Hans - I think I might have a little something for your "Durium website". I'll send you a separate mail about it!

Here's what I found on Cass Hagan in Rust's "American Dance Bands Discography": He played violin and lead a band that recorded 4 sides for Edison and 14 sides for Columbia (13 of them issued) between 1927 and 1928. Some recordings were issued as by "Cass Hagan and His Hotel Manger Orchestra" or "Cass Hagan and His Park Central Hotel Orchestra", so I assume that his band played at these hotels (in New York?).

On some of his records Red Nichols is the trumpet player.

Speaking of Woody Allen I love his "The Purple Rose Of Cairo", set in the early 1930s.

He's also made "Bullets Over Broadway" which is set in the 1920s and features a nice soundtrack.

The Royal Automobile Club Dance Band was a British dance orchestra directed by one Ebenezer Slydel, that's all I know (source: Brian Rust's "Jazz Records").

Where on earth does the segment in colour come from? Is that genuine colour film from the 1920s?

I love both, but at the same time it's hard to compare them: Whiteman was the laeder of a regular touring orchestra consisting of the same musicians night after night. Shilkret was a studio conductor who would record opera with a star from the Metropolitan one day and a hot dance number with pick up musicians the next. As a result I think that Whiteman's band had a more "personal" sound than Shilkret's. Shilkret on the other hand could, himself being in charge of his sessions, sometimes record slightly more adventurous things.

A wild guess, but the sax work has some of the trade marks of Guy Lombardo in the early 1930s.

Thank for the lyrics Eddie,

I'll pass them on to my brother suggesting he'll sing (or at least read) them to his wife!

I'd be interested in any Marion-related lyrics as well - my sister-in-law's name is Marion.

Sorry Marc - it turned out that "Dreamy Melody" is not included on the Art landry CD I have.

Are you searrching for the original 78s or just sound files? In the latter case I think I have the Landry side on CD and could send it to you by e-mail.

By the way - why is this quiz held in two threads at the same time? I initially thought I was the first to have some of the corrects answers, but then I realized that several other board members had done that long ago in the other thread... sad.gif

Several tough ones there, but I think a got some of them:

5) is definitely "The Sunrise", possibly with Johnny Hamp's band.

9) is - I believe - "The Wedding Of The Birds" or possibly "The Wedding Of The Painted Doll" (don't really know those two from each other).

10) is definitely "Last Night On The Back Porch".

12) is definitely "Keep Sweeping The Cob-Webs Off The Moon".

14) is "Halelujah"

15) is "The Girl Friend"

19) is "Just A Memory"

20) of this I'm not quite sure, but it might be "The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise".

Any prizes?

I have a version (an LP transfer of a contemporary 78 rpm record) of "Red Riding Hood" by the comedy duo "Salt and Pepper" (vocals and ukulele). This definitely uses the first version of the lyrics (the one that Garber used) and seems not to have been censored. I guess all record companies were not as sensitive as Victor, a major and rather high-brow label.

I'm no expert on instruments, but doesn't the cornet have a more mellow and perhaps somewhat softer tone than the trumpet? Thus maybe the trumpet worked better in the big bands and at the huge dance venues for simple "acoustic" reasons?

There were a few musicians who stuck to the cornet all through their careers though, Rex Stewart being one of the most famous. I think Bobby Hackett did too.

Yes, that's the same recording (matrix 1153) although my copy is not on Regal but on Grey Gull.

Unfortunately my record is a bit worn.

The only form of transfer I have the possibility to make is to an old fashioned cassette that I could send you by traditional "snail mail" if you give me your postal adress. Would you like me to include some of the other "rose titles" as well?

This must be a British orchestra, as this song was much more popular in the UK than over here.


I'm not quite sure about that. This orchestra looks very similar to one in another short I have on a home-made DVD another collector sent me. That band was definitely American and includes Miff Mole (tb) and Jimmy Lyttell (cl). However the poor quality of the You Tube excerpt makes it hard to tell if they are present here as well.

I have only two or three Phonycords but they are absolutely THE best-sounding flexible 78s that I've ever heard - it's almost hi-fi quality!

This is a medley. I don't know all the tunes, but the one played from circa 0.34 until circa 1.20 is Rimsky-Korsakov's "Chanson Hindouie", aka "Song Of India".

I don't believe I've ever seen a European record in a flimsy paper sleeve--they always are those heavy cardboard affairs with nice advertisements on them. Do you know why that is? It must have added a lot to the cost of a record, it seems to me. Also, European recording quality, I hate to say it, seems to have been better than ours.


Another difference seems to be that most European records tend to come in sleeves that were made for the individual dealers who sold the records, whereas US records most often are in sleeves from the record company that produced them.

There are of course exceptions to this rule - both sides of the pond.

There are many early small band jazz recordings that use piano as the only rhythm instrument, for example those by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band and many of Lovie Austin's studio groups.

As for the tuba the bass saxophone was an alternative. Good examples are the various groups featuring Adrian Rollini and the lesser known Jimmy Johnson who played on most records by Harry Reser.

Many of the musicians, singers and composers above were indeed jewish. I some cases this becomes even more evident if you know their real names: Ted Lewis was for example born Theodore Friedman and Ben Bernie's actual name was Bernhard Anselwitz (not sure about the spelling though). But I've never heard or read anything about Isham Jones being of jewish heritage; where does that information come from? I know he was from a mining district in Ohio, which doesn't seem like a typical settlement for jewish immigrants.

Another name that could be added to the list above is prolific vocalist Irving kaufman (and his brother Jack).

I do not actively dislike them, but sometimes I get a bit tired of all those peppy 6/8 one-steps such as "C-O-N-S-T-A-N-T-I-N-O-P-L-E", "The Stein Song" and "Collegiate". They lack the rhythmic drive of the contemporary foxtrots.
