Here's my favourite record in my collection.

Varsity Yale Blues - Savoy Orpheans at the Savoy Hotel, London
Does anyone know of another version? Also is the song from around 1927?


W. Bruyninckx's Swing Discography has "Varsity Yale" (Bb11581-1 - Elec (G) EG712) from September 1927.

By Paul Burgess on the sleeve to "Retro-Specht" (1925-1931) - Paul Specht & His Orchestra - Vintage Music Productions (VMP 0121) ...

"Paul Specht entered the world, in 1895, in a place with the depressed name of Sinking Springs, Pennsylvania. We don't know much about his early years. When he again surfaced, the year was 1915, and he was the violinplaying leader of a small band he had formed to fill an engagement at the Fowler Hotel, in Lafayette, Indiana, home of Purdue University. Here, he was heard by a group of influential writers who helped publicize him and boost his fledgling career."

"By 1916, Specht's travels had brought him to Detroit, Michigan, where he formed a six-peace band. Within the year, the group's success had allowed it to grow to twelve players. Throughout his career, he made telling use of his very skill at finding, hearing and employing the best musicians available. In hiring Frank Guarente, for example, he was employing a man who claimed to have played with and exchanged ideas with King Oliver and Freddy Keppard. You can hear it in his playing!"

"Specht was a man of "firsts." He claimed - and it is widely believed - that his band was the first to broadcast dance music over radio. This event took place on September 14, 1920, over WWJ Detroit. It is thought that the music played was more likely to have been "dance" rather than "jazz." Specht certainly liked jazz and had players with unusual ability and talent for playing this new music - including, at one time or another, trumpeter Frank Guarente, reedman Johnny O'Donnell, trombonist Russ Morgan, pianistarraanger Arthur Schutt, banjoist Harold Deppe, tubaist Joe Tarto and drummer Chauncey Morehouse. With players like these in the studio (if indeed they had been present), jazz may well have been played on the broadcast. In any event, Specht soon became a regular broadcaster, either leading his own band or sending in contracted units under the Specht monicker."

"Paul Specht had seen the success that Art Hickman had achieved in contracting a number of separate bands to play under his name (frequently, ten or more in a given evening), as well as "Art Hickman's Orchestra." Paul Whiteman was quick to follow suit. By 1922, Specht, who himself had had considerable experience doing booking in a number of cities, including Detroit and Philadelphia, met up with show business entrepreneur, Gus Edwards, who brought him to New York. Soon, he was playing in residency in that city's Hotel Almanac, in the ballroom with full orchestra. After hours, he was expected to play the hotel's late-hour "Congo Room." To heighten the room's jungle atmosphere, Specht brought in a small jazz unit under the leadership of Frank Guarente."

"Paul Specht, next, signed a contract with Columbia Records and, on June 24, 1922, did his first session for that company. A few days later, on June 29, two sides were issued as by "Specht's Jazz Outfit," which was a six-piece band similar to "The Georgians" (minus the banjo player). It marked another first for Specht, the first of its genre to be known as the "band within a band" format, a device much used by Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, The California Ramblers and many others, thereafter."

"Specht was early to garner band employment aboard posh transatlantic ocean liners, then, upon putting ashore, playing pre-commitments on the continent. In this manner, he took one of his bands to London, in 1923, where it took up residency at Lyon's Corner House. So well received was Specht, in that venue, that he was invited to play at the swank Kit-Cat Club, for the 1925 season."

"In 1926, his duties, at home, prevailed over the temptation to return to London, just then. However, a Specht unit did get to go to the Kit-Cat Club, in the leader's stead, for the 1926 season. This unit was billed as "Paul Specht's Canadian Orchestra," under the direction of Orville Johnson."

"As 1930 rolled around, Paul Specht found himself more popular than ever. His booking agency, Consolidated Booking, had proven very lucrative. At one time, the agency had in its employment both Harl Smith and Don Redman. By 1930, his output of published phonograph records numbered well over one hundred issues, and since his introduction to radio in 1920, he had kept busy broadcasting on a regular basis. He and his band performed in a Hollywood sound film, "Love At First Sight" (Chesterfield 1930)."

"During the 1930s, the years of constant and wearisome acitivity began to take their toll. He slowed down his band business, ceased making records and, eventually, gave up booking as well. Paul Specht died in April 1954."

Thank you (ASV) for the issue of "Music, Maestro, Please" by Art Kassel, who is one of my favourites among the great American sweet bands of the 30s and 40s, alongside such as Guy Lombardo and Jan Garber.

The CD (5594) has 26 tracks from 1929-1949 and is available from World Records for the prize of $13.00.

gregoryagogo,

If you liked "Pennies" with Steve Martin & Bernadette Peters you should really look for Dennis Potter's English original with Bob Hoskins & Cheryl Campbell. It is, in my opinion, at least ten times better!

You can buy it on DVD from amazon.com for the prize of $53.99 or even better from mediacrazy.com, bigrockmedia.com or oddbanana.com for $39.40.

I can also recommend "The Singing Detective" (Michael Gambon) from the very same Dennis Potter. It is a very amusing movie very much in the same style as "Pennies."

I'm surprised, I thought everyone knew that Bob Crosby (1913-1993) was Bing's youngest sibling.

Anyway, the year Bing became a national phenomenon, 1931, Bob only 18 years old at the time, got a telegram from Anson Weeks offering him a job singing with his band in San Francisco. Bob accepted, and within four years Bob was leading his own orchestra, even though he could not play an instrument. Bob's most famous band was a small Dixieland jazz group called the Bobcats.

Bob's recordings topped the charts four times: "In a Little Gypsy Tea Room" in 1935, "Whispers In The Dark" in 1937, and "Day In, Day Out" in 1939. Bing first recorded with Bob's orchestra in 1938, and their first session produced a No. 1 hit, "You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby."

Also among Bob's musical hits were "South Rampart Street Parade," "March Of The Bobcats" and "Dolores" (with Bing).

I suggest that you go to "http://www.petefaint.co.uk/jackhylton/music.htm" (Jack Hylton Music Downloads), than click "me" (pete@petefaint.co.uk) and ask him if possible to add "L-O-V-E" to his list of downloads.

At least it's worth a try ...

Hi DrC,

"Snowball" Murphy - Roane's Pennsylvanians

Yes, the discography specifically identify him as the singer together with Bobby Roberts on "Between the devil and the deep blue sea" - New York, January 28, 1932 and with Cliff Nazarro on "Is I in love? I is" and "Goodbye blues" - New York, June 2, 1932.

Hi,

I have a Swing Discography by a Belgian called W. Bruyninckx and he has him as "Snowball" Murphy.

At least something ...

Sorry - wrong date of recording ...

It is still Small Queen's Hall, London, but the date is either Nov 4, 1929 (The Official Jack Hylton Website) or Nov 8, 1929 (Brian Rust).

I have chequed my own collection and also tried to locate it for you elsewhere (I live in Sweden) but regret to say I do not think it is available on CD.

Regards

at Small Queen's Hall, London, Oct 15, 1929.

Vocals by Sam Browne and Ennis Parkes (Mrs. Jack Hylton).

OK?

RichConaty!

"I've only seen a few minutes of the new Detective"

If you are referring to the 2003 version with Robert Downey Jr. you are probably watching the "wrong" movie.

The English version from 1986 with Michael Gambon (as I mentioned in the 1900-1940 General Topics Forum) is in my opinion the one you shall concentrate on.

But that is of course a matter of taste ...

Jarred!

Are you referring to Art Kassel?

Art first recorded it on Columbia in 1932 and I suppose you all know the story behind it, otherwise here it goes: On New Year´s Eve of 1931 a young lady had danced by the bandstand and when Art asked her if she was having any fun answered "Hell's Bells, Yes." Art knew a good song title when he heard it and that next day wrote it. (Taken from the sleeve to Art Kassel and His "Kassels-In-The-Air" Orchestra 1944 Hindsight HSR-162.)

Other good versions by Hal Kemp and Jimmie Lunceford.

I am the lucky owner of both the DVD (English version from 1978) and the 2CD-set "Pennies From Heaven" (BBC CD 2008 - 1990).

The DVD is as mentioned available in the States, but the CD-set that used to be available in England is unfortunately "gone".

If you like "Pennies" you may also enjoy "The Singing Detective" (Michael Gambon) from the very same Dennis Potter. It is a very amusing movie very much in the same style as "Pennies" and I can strongly recommend it.

The DVD is available in the States and you can buy the 3CD-set "Music From The Singing Detective" at amazon.com (UK) for the favourable price of £8.99.

Clark,

Since you obviously are quite familiar with "Das Palast Orchester" perhaps you can recommend one or two CDs from their huge repertoire?

Thanks!
