Hi All,

Does anyone know where I could find a transfer of the 1929 Ben Bernie version of "Baby - Oh, Where Can You Be?" I thought the one I was looking for was the Lou Gold version, but it turns out I'm wrong...

...in the meantime, check out this version, by Rudy Vallee and his Connecticut Yankees: http://www.museeq.com/ramb/VIC53468-4.ram


Thanks!
Henry

Henry,

I happened to download from Dismuke Radio (11-8-05) Ben Bernie's version of Baby, Oh Where Can You Be. So it's out there.

Thanks for the nice track. Does anybody happen to have any of the sides that I vaguely recall Jack Teagarden recording with Willard Robison c.1928? I'm pretty sure I heard one Willard Robison band track with JT during the JT festival on WKCR around 1985 but it's been a while so I can't say for sure. I think the track was There Must Be A Silver Lining which according to the sheet music for the tune was written by Dolly Morse, not Lee Morse.

Laughland,

Thanks so much - that's the right version indeed! The Rudy Vallee version is also good, but it seems to be treated as a romantic-sounding ballad, rather than a dance number. The Ben Bernie version has this particular instrumental passage - first at about 53 seconds into the recording, and agan right before the vocal - that I think is just exquisite. I also love how after the vocal, the band gets considerably hotter and starts to use more syncopation.

I also think it's interesting that a lot of Ben Bernie recordings have such resonant bass qualities. Does this come from using a string bass? Or is it the result of the recording studio having had especially good acoustics?

Thanks again!

Best,
Henry

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.
