I just hooked up my numark TT200 again. It has been packed up from my move to Florida for about a year, so I decided it was time to get it out and start spinning records !

QUOTE (Nev @ Sep 1 2010, 02:39 AM) *
Who wrote the song from 1932 - not who played it or sang it or anything else! The writing of the actual song, thanks.


Thanks Aaron for that nice picture of the sheet music cover.

This is one of my favorite songs from the early 30s, I usuallly don't like waltzes but this one is particularly good.
There are many good versions of this song, but my favorite is an organ duet by Jesse Crawford and Helen Crawford with a Frank Luther vocal. It was recorded in 1932 using Victor's High Fidelity equipment and I hope to play it in a future Radio Dismuke broadcast.

While I am sure most of us are familiar with Hal Kemp's version of this song, here is one film clip of this song. From the 1937 film of the same name with Jack Haley and Ann Sothern (DANGER LOVE AT WORK)

Enjoy !

Hi,

My Baby Just Cares For Me was written for the 1930 film version of Whoopee but was not used in the original 1928 production.

Here's a neat youtube channel owned by a 94 year old, on which she demonstrates how to prepare Depression Era meals from her childhood.

Depression Cooking

She has cookbooks and DVDs for sale as well.

Here is a quote from her channel.

"94 year old cook, author and great grandmother, Clara, recounts her childhood during the Great Depression as she prepares meals from the era. Learn how to make simple yet delicious dishes while listening to stories from the Great Depression."

I just received this, and this is the DVD buy of the year, if not the decade. Disc 1 is good, but disc 2 is simply amazing !!!

Columbia experimented with lead in grooves in 1930, only a few issues have them. I have about 4 or 6 Columbia records with them and one OKEH. After 1930 they were discontinued until 1935 when you start to see some DECCA 78s with them. By 1937 Victor and Brunswick were using them as well.

Nice work guys. I'll try to fill in some of the blanks:

"SLAPPIN' THE BASS" BY TED WEEMS & HIS ORCHESTRA

Oh slap slap slap that bass
He gets you hot, no time to waste!



Zoom zoom zoom zoom

There a great big instrument
You hear in every band
That used to be played with a bow
and now it's played by hand

It's against all music rules
all music schools they say
But I don't give a rap
I love the way they slap- that grown-up baby today!


Do I fall?- For the little fiddle man?
Not at all!-But I'm off my noodle
When someone's slappin' the bass!

On my soul- I'm as TICKLED as can be
Self-control- never have it
When I see someone slappin' the bass


It may look out of place in a swell organization
But folks without a bass, there isn't s bit of foundation!

Oooooooooh Me-O-My! but it's PLEASING TO BE HERE
And I fly RIGHT to have it when I hear
Someone a slappin' the bass!

Both versions are campier than what I remember from the Broadway production. (Such is the vampire's knack for making anything sexy, I suppose.)
Still, Fields is great. Appreciate your help, and thanks for the welcome.



Here are three which I have in my collection. I will dig them out some time.

Brunswick 4628 TOM GERUN & HIS ORCH DREAM LOVER
Victor 22241 NAT SHILKRET & HIS ORCH DREAM LOVER
Columbia 2000-D COLUMBIA PHOTO-PLAYERS DREAM LOVER

Thanks. I think that is Lambert. The guitar player is excellent, I wonder who it could be?


OK, This selection was recorded January 20, 1932 and issued on Melotone M-12313 by Joe Green and his Orchestra (under pseudonym Dan Roberts) with vocalist Scrappy Lambert. The guitarist is not listed but it might be Roy Smeck, who was affiliated with ARC in the early 1930s.

All of this information is available in Rust's American Dance Band Discography.

There is a distinct possibility that an alternate take was issued on British or continental European Parlophone, as British labels often issued different takes than American issues. It is also possible that a different take was used on British Parlophone reissues of the late 1930s and 1940s.
