My Aunt Marion was born in 1917. She later changed the o to an a to make it more feminine. We all know who Marion Morrison was.

Greetings,
I think I can answer this question. The hot trumpet player is probably Earl Oliver. I know this because I collect Edison records. Reser recorded under various pseudonyms on Edison one of them being “Earl Oliver;’s Jazz Babies”. The hot trumpet can be heard prominently on these recordings. If it were Tommy Gott, they would be called “Tommy Gott’s Jazz Babies”. I have always felt that Earl Oliver is one of the most unrecognized greats of the jazz age.

Greetings all,
All these postings about gay sounding songs and nothing about lesbians. Can that be because mostly guys collect 78s? I am aware of at least one blatantly lesbian sing, Ma Rainey singing "Prove It To Me Blues". She sings about wearing men's clothes and only liking women.

If you can hear it on your computer, you can record it as an mp3. I use a free open source program called Audacity. Check it out at http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/

I have this CD and these tracks sound just fine. Generally Old Masters CDs are excellent. George Morrow put out about thirty of these, they were a real labor of love. It is unfortunate that he passed away, he was planning many more.

Here is a bit of trivia concerning this record. The "Eight Popular Victor Artists" record was the earliest electric Victor to be issued. It was intended to be a demonstration record of the new electric process for the big shots at Victor. It turned out so well that Victor eventually issued it. It is not the first Victor electric which is Victor 19626 but is was recorded in late February 1925, Victor 19626 was recorded in March.

Although I collect pre-swing records going back to the beginning (my oldest record is a Berliner Disc from 1897), my favorite period is 1923 to about 1932. During this time music evolved into more complex melodies and harmonies than had previously existed. Compare the harmonic complexity of the 1928 song "Changes" by Walter Donaldson to the simplicity of a George M. Cohan composition. Also arrangements became more interesting. In the teens dance record arrangements were often repetitive. This begins to change by about 1923. An early example of this change is the Ferde Grofe's arrangement of the Gershwin song "I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise" as recorded by Paul Whiteman in 1922. This is a terrific arrangement.

Jewish influences show up where you don't expect them. You could not be more gentile than Cole Porter yet he often used Jewish harmonic modes. With this in mind, listen to "My Heart Belongs To Daddy" with it's minor key sections with raised sevenths.

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.
