Great stuff - both of you. Thanks for posting them.

I hadn't ever heard The Cat And The Fiddle Selection before...

A great choice IMHO - using Fats Waller as the soundtrack for this product.

FWIW, "Charlie Two Step" was written by Hoagy Charmichael.

I also like the version turned out by the Bozzies - full of the unique style variations you expect from them.

Not so rosy around here - it's rained a lot lately but there was a brilliant rainbow this evening so here's my choice for today...

Annette Hanshaw - If You Want The Rainbow

BTW, nice pics Don!

Good find there laughland. I really like the modern sound on these old songs. These recordings were made the old fashion way, musicians and singers playing together in the same room. Gives one a sense of what it might have been to be at a live Bozzie concert in the old days.


Don...

You are right on the money there Don!

That opening tune would be "Charlie Two Step".

Yup Don, I'd agree - that is a little bit bad.

I think Terry's right about the strange solo - it's a hummed instrument sound - like you might hear from the Mills Brothers, only they knew how to do it well.

For fans of the Boswell Sisters, here's an interesting story about the creation of a recording by a band modeled after the Boswells. Of course in this case the band shows a bit of a Spanish accent at times and one of the three sisters is a man... but they clearly love imitating the originals and I like the results.

The group is from Spain and is called "O Sister! " and they were given an unfinished song written by the Boswells and were asked to clean it up and record it.

For a full "making of" documentary plus the recording of the song You-dle-ee-oo-de-oo - try this link.

And in case you want more - here's a link to some clips by the band.

I searched the British Dance Band group on Yahoo (run by the same folks as who run Memory Lane) and found that this topic was dealt with when Randy Skretvedt was assembling his Bowlly mega package. Randy did not include it because while assembling the recordings he researched it and was certain Al was not the vocalist.

It's just this simple - Al Bowlly has many fans and if someone mistakenly says Al is on something it means sales for those selling and a thrill for fans who think they discovered a new recording. It's always more exciting to repeat exciting news even if it is wrong.

Terry's comparison to Bix fans grasping for every possible note in every band he might have been in is a good one.

How about some REAL Al Bowlly instead of all this phony stuff?

laughland,
Believe you have solved the lyric problem. I copied the mp3 file into my music editor and got much better clarity
and it's definitely 'He would find he's losing time in wasting all his little arrows on me'.

Don...


Great work Don - I guess that now we are all ready to sing along with Jabbo!

I'm not as certain about the second phrase - to me it sounds like:

He would find he's losing tie in wasting all his little arrows on me.


But "tie" doesn't make sense to me. Perhaps he slurred away an "m" and it was supposed to be "time". Not sure.

Here's a link for anyone else who wants to give Jabbo a listen: How can cupid be so stupid? (1938)

Here's a bit more - from a podcast of the British Dance Band Show site - you can hear Ace Roland singing. He resembles Al Bowlly and in the words of John Wright as he introduces the recording, "one singer Ray was featuring might have easily been confused with Al Bowlly by early collectors... Ace Roland. "

Listen to this podcast beginning at about 11:27 for the intro and recording.

It would be great to uncover more Al Bowlly recordings but I agree that it is not Al in there.

I vaguely remember there being some other vocalist with Ray Noble who people have incorrectly claimed was Al.

Lemme check...

OK - I think this might be a vocalist named Ace Roland who was also with Ray Noble around the same time. Anyone know for certain?

A little something for your Memorial Day - and to honor those who have served us over the years. Here's a pair of recordings made by Sousa in the 1920s.

The U.S. Field Artillery March (1921)

Glory of the Yankee Navy (1926)

Whatever. I'm not really looking for extensive archives or to keep copies on disk but YMMV. Of course you could explain what you mean in more detail for those who might want that ability.

I guess I shouldn't have mentioned The Big Broadcast specifically in this thread. It seems to have sent it off topic from where I intended. The BB is only one of many programs where DAR.fm can be useful. If you don't see a need for you that's fine but I've found it very useful and convenient.

That email thing doesn't like any email addresses I try with it. Hmm...

I knew they kept a couple weeks worth of archives like that but I'm lazy and I like that DAR organizes and keeps them longer - and I often get too busy to get around to the show for several weeks anyhow. It's a convenience.
And now I've gotten used to downloading this and other programs as mp3s and listening to them when driving to and from work. Rich is a much better D.J. and the music is superior than on any station I might receive over the airwaves around town.

Got a site to share which I've been using lately...

It's called DAR.fm (for "Digital Audio Recorder") and it can be used to schedule and record online radio programs. You could think of it as a way to create a podcast of programs which don't provide their own archives or podcasts for their listeners.

I've been using it to record WFUVs The Big Broadcast each Sunday for example. I can't count how many times Rich Conaty has played a tune and I wanted to hear it a second time but was unable when listening live - but I can do this and more with DAR.fm.

It's pretty slick - I can listen to the show when I get some free time and can even download the file and put it on an mp3 player. I've been using a free account but it's possible to pay for more recording space and the ability to record more than one program at the same time.

One drawback is that it breaks shows into 15 minute segments. Another is that some programs show up in their listings but don't work - one example of this is Radio Dismuke.

Anyway, just thought I'd pass the tip along...

Hey there Don - nice to see that you are still finding good stuff out there to share!

For some reason some of your links don't seem to work for me this time. sad.gif
I was able to find most of the faulty ones via searching however. tongue.gif


Anyway, I think my favorite from this bunch are the The DiGiallonardo Sisters. It is too bad there isn't a lot more by them to download or purchase...

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

I've had some problems with it off and on in recent months but it seems to be working OK for me right now.

Once awhile back I was not able to play anything at RedHotjazz for quite a long time so I decided to reinstall realplayer and that corrected the problem.
