Found it! smile.gif

There's A Tear For Every Smile In Hollywood
You're like a million others
Who seek the road to fame
But soon you'll realize
It's not an easy climb
You'll find like all the others
Whose dreams are just the same
The road is not as rosy
As Sunday papers claim

There's a tear for every smile in Hollywood
Every mile's a weary mile in Hollywood
A million dreams are born with each day
A million dreams keep fading away
Like the spider and the fly is Hollywood
Where a broken-hearted sigh is understood
Though fortune seems to beckon to some
There's a tear for every smile in Hollywood

There was a clip on YouTube from the movie Showgirl In Hollywood of Blanche Sweet performing the song with the complete lyrics but unfortunately it was pulled.

Here's an unusual Japanese recording from the prewar period which really swings. Unusual because most Japanese jazz and dance band recordings tend to be postwar while the majority of the prewar pop tunes were the more traditional-sounding fare. In addition, the lyrics are in English.

Thanks for pointing these out. smile.gif

Do you know what year they were recorded?


They were probably recorded sometime between 1927 and 1932 -- my own guess would be 1929 or 1930. Nat Shilkret was musical director from 1926 to 1932 and Victor's Japanese subsidiary was founded in 1927. Here's some more interesting Japanese recordings:

Takarazuka Revue -- Jissai Kirai (1931)

Tokiko Miura -- Madomoazeru
(Madamoiselle)
Columbia (Japan) 29027

Here's a couple of very unusual recordings by Nat Shilkret that I came across. As musical director of Victor his output encompassed far more than just the dance tunes and popular songs of the 1920s and 30s that we're familiar with. He also made numerous recordings for Victor's foreign markets such as Japan. On the label Nat Shilkret is rendered in Japanese as "Natto Shirukuretto." Also Japan Victor is now known today as the electronics giant JVC (Japan Victor Company).

When I look at his page at Red Hot Jazz, I see that he recorded that tune 3 different times - once each in 1924, 25 and 26. I guess he liked that tune. smile.gif
And whoever put the CD together decided to include all of these. I've seen something like this before - I think it was with a Jelly Roll Morton CD.


BTW, what happened to Red Hot Jazz? Their music has been down for quite a while now.

In comparing the 1924 acoustic recording of Rhapsody In Blue with the 1927 electrical version, I wonder if the differences in Whiteman's and Shilkret's style can be readily discerned?

During the recording session for the electric re-recording of Rhapsody In Blue, there was a disagreement which prompted Whiteman to angrily storm out of the studio in a huff so Nat Shilkret had to step in and lead the session.

Lew Conrad was featured in the May 2009 HoW

http://dismuke.org/how/prev5-09.html

QUOTE
Lew Conrad was best known on radio as a star vocalist on NBC in the early 1930s when he was for a brief while considered to be an up-and-coming "crooner."

Both of Conrad's parents were vocalists; his father was a soloist at the Cathedral at Tours in France and his mother sang in a church choir in Leeds, England. However, since they wanted their son to become a musician rather than a vocalist, Conrad studied violin. By his early teens Conrad was billed as a child prodigy and spent two miserable weeks on a vaudeville circuit which he quit as soon as his agreed upon engagement was up.

After his father died, Conrad had to support both himself and his mother while he attended high school and, later Tuft's University. "I went to classes most of the day, had rehearsals and played in dance orchestras in the evening and it usually was past midnight when I started to study for the next day's classes. So I formed the habit of sleeping but four or five hours each night. I still do" Conrad told a newspaper reporter in 1931 (The Lincoln Star, May 10, 1931 p 39)

After graduating from Tufts, Conrad spent a year with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra before joining the Leo Reisman band as a violinist and vocalist. In addition to recording sessions with Reisman , Conrad also performed in several studio orchestra recording sessions for Nat Shilkret and Ben Selvin. Around 1929 he was given an audition for the National Broadcasting System and began appearing in NBC programs. He was offered an exclusive contract with the network in September 1930.

In May 1931, Conrad reflected on the opportunities that the advent of radio opened up for vocalists:

It has also meant that we can do the thing we most want to do - sing - and still
live like human beings. I've heard older singers tell of the days before the radio. If
they insisted upon singing for a living they had to travel in vaudeville, or with stock
companies or, hardest of all, acquire a foreign accent and name and spend years trying to break into opera.

Today, we singers who use the radio can conduct our lives as any business or professional man would, with regular hours, homes and the opportunity to earn excellent incomes doing the thing we most want to do.

Not so long ago, hundreds of real artists among American singers, had to earn their
livings in some other way and make of their singing an avocation instead of a vocation.

The effect has already been felt in Tin Pan Alley in the demand on the part of the
American public for better American lyrics. Before the radio little attention was paid to tho singing of American songs by Americans - our music lovers had not recovered
from their inferiority complex about anything in the way of music that was not imported - imported from, it didn't matter where, so long as it was imported.

Today, with a radio in every home, all America is listening to American songs. The
country hears and applauds the home boys, sings the songs it hears over the radio and writes in to the station to praise, correct and encourage.

Our lyric writers are inspired and Tin Pan Alley is turning out better and bettor songs, lyrics that interpret the real American.

(San Antonio Express, May 24, 1931 p. 56)


The period between 1931 and 1933 seems to have been the peak of Conrad's fame. By the spring of 1931, Conrad could be heard cost to cost on network radio nine different times each week. In 1933 his band was featured in an installment of the Warner Bros/Vitaphone series of musical shorts 'Rambling Round Radio Row. After 1933, however, mentions of Conrad in archived radio newspaper radio programing listings become scarce until 1937 and 1938. The latest mention I could find of him and his band being active was from mid 1941, though it is possible that it might have continued on after that.

Vintage men's clothes were meant to last longer, take punishment, and not go out of style so soon. So they typically got worn right into the ground. So "vintage clothing" today is typed as a women-only interest - if only because there's so much more left for the gals. Books and guides are for them - only.


Unfortunately, many examples of vintage men s clothes had often undergone an alteration or two at some point in their existence to keep them "current", rendering them totally unrecognizable.

While some of you might not agree with the political views of radio talk show host Michael Savage, I do enjoy many of his anecdotes -- particularly the ones about him growing up in New York in the '50s. And the one that comes to mind is the story he's often told about how his family was so poor that up until he went to high school he wore what he called "dead man's pants." Savage's father, a junk dealer, would pick up men's suits (probably ones from the '20s or '30s) at an estate sale and then have a tailor cut them down to size for his son.

I tried to email Michel but it bounced. BTW, I wonder if he'll ever fix his French site? I haven't been able to listen to any of the songs from there in a long time. There's a couple of songs by Mistinguett that I like.

Actually the song title is Zwei Dunkel Augen, if I remember my high school German. The tune sounds a bit like April Showers.

Craig,

Not only did he introduce "Melancholy Baby" but also "Carolina In The Morning". However, it was Van and Schenck who "took "Carolina in the Morning" to the top of the charts" with their Columbia recording.

Best,

Bob


I do seem to recall one of the episodes of I Love Lucy where former vaudevillians Fred and Ethel perform Carolina In The Morning which does give it a special significance in light of William Frawley's connection with the song.

It seems that at one time the blackface tradition was so deeply ingrained in the entertainment of the day that also black entertainers such as Bert Williams wore blackface make-up -- even when performing for predominantly black audiences, as was in the case of Jelly Roll Morton. Early in his career he toured the black vaudeville circuit in the South as a comedian. In fact the Jelly Roll name was based on the character he played in his vaudeville days.

Where are you getting that from? (I only ask because any info on Isham is pretty scarce.)


I found that bit of info in a piece about Jane Green. Somewhere in my collection I have a recording of Jane Green singing My Castle In Spain. It was from the audio of an early talkie whose title escapes me.

QUOTE
Tragically Jimmy Blyler* fell ill and died in 1924. Later in that year Jane teamed up with Isham Jones and his orchestra("I'll See You In My Dreams").A two year love affair ensued resulting in Jones' composition "My Castle In Spain" written especially for Jane.

*my mistake, I referred to him as Bleier in my previous post.

I can't believe it's true
Here we are alone, we two
I have waited all my life it seems
To tell my dreams to you

There was I waiting all alone
Wondering why I was all alone
Wondering when I would find you, dear
You were near, oh so far, oh so dear

Then we met and we've never known
What it means being all alone
Hold me close, time is flying fast
Till we are all alone at last

You see, I can't think of any vintage songs about that other sport some people call football. laugh.gif

Am I wrong?


OK, I feel like I should offer another clip - so here's a medley of (mostly Big Ten) college songs by Coon Sanders from a Maytag Frolic broadcast


The only soccer song that I could think of and find is this tango from Argentina. The Boca Juniors are a soccer team over there and this is their official tango. Even though the recording is from the '50s (its style was still largely unchanged from the '30s and '40s) the song itself might date back a bit earlier.

El Himno Del Boca Juniors -- Orquestra Miguel Caḷ

Sweetheart, there's something wrong

I see the same old moon, the same old June but not the same old you
The same old place, the same embrace but not the thrill I knew
You love someone, who can it be? Please tell me, Hon, because I can see
That it's the same old moon, the same old June but not the same old you

Shine above, lamp of love, prairie moon
Way up there in the blue, maybe you're lonely too
Swinging by in the sky, prairie moon

I need your tender light to make things right
You know I'm all alone tonight
Far away shed your beam on the girl of my dreams
Tell her too, I've been through prairie moon

What a cute little song! It has cabaret sound... I can imagine this being done in a quaint little cafe!

Though you say it's a "Charleston", which I hear those parts, but there is a very Tango-quality to it too! It's like a composite for 2 very popular dance fads of the time!




Like many Argentine bandleaders Francisco Canaro was known primarily for his tango recordings, in fact he's considered one of the legends of tango (alongside Carlos Gardel). Here's one of his recordings:

Most people today probably know Gloria Stuart from the movie Titanic. She was also in the 1935 film Here Comes the Navy with James Cagney and Pat O'Brien. The storyline of Here Comes the Navy takes place on the battleship U.S.S. Arizona (BB-39). The movie was also filmed aboard the ill-fated battlewagon.
