Dear List,

Here's a question about a band which I can find no information about, anywhere. I've heard a few recordings by a band called the "Dixie Two-Steppers" on Radio Dismuke and like them a lot. The recordings sound like possible transcriptions of a mid-20's radio program, almost certainly for dancing. They aren't the best group, but nevertheless, thier recordings have a certain energy and verve about them. The recordings are almost always medleys consisting of two songs from then recent movies or revues, such as one especially nice medley of "Am I Blue?" and "Liza" from "Showgirl". They are announced clearly at the beginning and end of each number. Does anyone know about this great but little-known band? One possibility is that "Dixie Two-Steppers" may be a recording pseudonym used by a little-known dance orchestra.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Have a good weekend,
Henry

Dear Dismuke and Forum,

Thanks for all your information. I had actually been searching through 78's for any numbers by the Dixie Two-steppers, but it's good to know that they are available on LP. For the past few months, I've been attempting to chronicle 20's dance and radio bands, with the ultimate goal of creating an amateur compilation which captures some of the zietgiest of the period. Now here's a technical question- is there any way of converting LP to digital files without advanced equipment? For 78's and cylinders, I've made tape recordings and had a friend transfer them to CD. Needless to say, the sound quality is pretty awful.

Even better, does anyone have quicktime files of the Dixie Two-steppers which they would be willing to share?

Thanks again for all the input!

Henry
