And, "Barnacle Bill" also features a great solo from Bix Beiderbecke after the first vocal chorus.

I love that song! It's one that I know I have in my 78 collection!

Love,

Welcome to the site 80RPM! Thanks for gracing the subject I started awhile back with your first post! Hopefully the first of many in all categories!

You and probably 99.9% of the other members. Somehow jazz just doesn't seem to come across very convincingly in 3/4 time...

Welcome to the board 80rpm. Don't worry about not knowing quite what to do. A lot of us don't know what we're doing either. It comes in time, so just keep posting and you will get the hang of it.

I happen to be in the minority apparently, as I love waltzes. Each to his own, I guess.

Flapper Girl!

I'm going to dedicate this selection to your enjoyment--if it didn't already have a title, it would be called "The Waltz that Changed My Mind about Waltzes". I was at my fellow collector friend's house in West a couple of years ago and he was playing an old tape of Jean Goldkette records when this song came on and I was transfixed about how beautiful it is: Hush-a-Bye.

Here's another I've developed a real affinity for--it's the electrically recorded version of Paul Whiteman's Three O'Clock in the Morning

Enjoy!

Okay, Waltzs are not all bad. I have about 10,000 pre swing records in my collection and can point to one side as my least favorite. Although Lee Morse is one of my favorite singers I can't stand her recording of "Lee's Lullaby", Pathé 032102B. This is guaranteed to put you to sleep. (Come to think of it, that's what a Lullaby is suppose to do). The flip side is "All Alone" a great Irving Berlin song.

I guess Edgar Sampson's "Lullaby In Rhythm" from the swing era is somewhat inappropriately titled!

Hi 80,

A belated welcome to the board!

I am also a big fan of Lee Morse ... but she was a MUCH better singer than she was a songwriter (I just faint when I hear that mezzo soprano :-). However, her writing style tended to be very repetitive and, sometimes, even dreary. To be fair, she did write quite a number of solid winners, but that repetitive quality seems to dominate throughout most of her own work... I forgive "Lee's Lullaby" for being slow and repetitive because of its historical importance; It's Lee's most personal composition and is simply drenched with valuable lyrics -one of our only sources of biographical info ...but, agreed, it's not one to dance to...

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.

Fredrik

Agree there. Besides 6/8 is a pain to site read if everything is in something more normal like 4/4 or 2/4. They take you by suprise biggrin.gif .

Yea, I don't exactly despise them but they get old quick.
