A bit late catching up with the news rolleyes.gif Still around though. Thanks for the heads up GoodOldDays.

I have recordings of The Big Broadcast going back to when it started to stream, not all complete due to poor internet connections in the earlier days, but more or less complete and of varying quality from 2007. So I treat myself to one program a week. I probably won't be around to be able to listen to them all. laugh.gif

Maybe I'm a lone voice in the wilderness here, but after 12 years Martin's 78 Turntable is back: http://www.martins78turntable.com/ biggrin.gif

Unfortunately I think the forum may have become terminal Derek, there seems little hope of resurrection.
I have to confess that I only visit briefly maybe every month or so these days.

Thanks Derek, I enjoyed that piece. Those clarinetists certainly have talent.

The entire archive of British Pathé from 1910 to 1970 has now been put onto YouTube. There are numerous clips of British dance bands from the the 1930s.

I bought the DVD of The Harmonists. It was a great film, the period was right on, I didn't spot any obvious goofs. The lip-synching was perfect, and the sound quality was so good you couldn't tell it was 78rpm records.

It is about time I watched it again smile.gif

Older 'el-cheapo' style turntables driven by a small diameter spindle and an intermediate rubber pinch wheel between the spindle and the inside diameter of the platen were bad for producing wow. The solution was to get a better turntable smile.gif

I think the weird solo sounds a bit like a high pitched "hum" through the lips.

I strained my ears with Beside a Dutch Canal, but did not detect a hint of Bowlly underneath the duet, but my ears are not what they used to be..........

There are similar discussions as to whether it is Bix or not, particularly 'Waiting at the End of the Road', we all want it to be Bix, but Secrest was so good at times it is hard to tell.

That doesn't sound at all like Al Bowlly to me. For comparison listen to Belle of Barcellona, that is most definitely Al, albeit with Spanish accent instead of Italian smile.gif

QUOTE (heer_bommel @ May 6 2013, 10:30 AM) *
You think those were bad? Then I've got a surprise for you. This guy is the absolute worst. He sounds a bid like an extremely angry Arthur Fields. I don't know his name, but he completely spoils an otherwise excellent recording.

That song is on YouTube and the poster (Victor Talking Machine) said the vocalist is Herman Engler, can't say I'm familiar with the name. He sounds a bit over the top smile.gif Mind you, Harry Richman when in full flight was way over the top !

Thanks for the tip Limden, I'll have a fossick around that site.

However, that is such a vast improvement that I can now listen happily to it without squirming, thanks Greg.

Jack Buchanan was a British star of stage and film in the 20s and 30s, debonair with a cane and a girl on his arm, but he couldn't really sing, not the worst by any means, but his Goodnight Vienna folds me up as he goes up and down an octave:

You did a nice job there Gregory, it is now a very presentable recording.

However I still think the vocalist on the Whiteman 'How about Me' is about twice as bad as Sam Sanders smile.gif

Listen again: http://www.redhotjazz.com/songs/whiteman/hwboutme.ra

Damn good job that Bix was not on that record !

Thanks for that clip Don, he does play without a mute a little later in that clip, and I just listened to the 1922 Whiteman recording of Hot Lips on RHJ. The quality is not that good, but I'd say he also plays open horn on that, so obviously he didn't confine himself exclusively to a mute.

Henry Busse played in the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, and from memory left in a pique because of the preferential treatment given to Bix Beiderbecke. Whiteman said Busse was old fashioned.

Now has anyone ever heard Busse play open cornet/trumpet ? I'm only aware of his playing with a mute, as typified on the Whiteman recording of 'When Day is Done' from 1927 http://www.redhotjazz.com/songs/whiteman/whndydn1.ra
This tune incidently was used as the introductory theme to the Lord Peter Wimsey BBC radio series.

In 1940 in 'Hot Lips' he was playing exactly the same, still with mute and instantly recognisable, on the bottom of this page http://www.jazz-on-line.com/pageinterrogat...=&B1=Submit

(Note JOL has changed, there are problems using Firefox though Michel said they were fixed, and can't seem to give a link directly to a song, it maybe me having finger trouble)

Perhaps Whiteman was right in 1927 about his style.

Many thanks for the link. That band is indeed red hot. I see there are more on Youtube.

Whilst we are in the recommendations part of the forum, a reminder that tomorrow ( Monday in NZ, Sunday in US ) is the autumn membership drive for WFUV and The Big Broadcast.

That is quite fascinating to watch. I'm still trying to work out what the "crud" is on the sufaces of the metal parts of the "speakers" or vibrators.

Maybe since version 14 and certainly 15.0.1, I find Firefox browser will not download from Jazz on Line, http://www.jazz-on-line.com/index.htm.
In order to use Firefox an Internet Explorer rendering addon has to be used, the one I used is Fire IE,

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/fire-ie/

A previous IE addon stopped working with the latest Firefox version.

Thanks for that link. It prompted me to grab the last night of the proms before that disappears too.

'No Trouble But You' is on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvTESm1N2Y4 , but I can only find 'Who's Afraid of The Big Bad Wolf' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RfI-Lf94Tk not the title 'Afraid'. Hope that helps.
Cheers

Just listening to Radio Dismuke and up comes "Paul Whiteman Orchestra - How About Me".

Who is the vocalist on this? It must rank near to the worst ever, along with Wes Vaughn on I'll Be a Friend, and Seger Ellis on Bix and Trams' Blue River.

Any more candidates ?

Isn't that just great ! All very highly polished performances. Wouldn't it be great if we could get a new generation of composers and song writers.

Thanks very much for passing that on.
