And John McCormack, who I like, but I need never find another copy of his Mother Machree. I recoil at the sight of it.

Speaking of Bing, those two plain covered Brunswick reissue albums of Bing's 1930's Brunswick sides Volume 1 and Volume 2 must be among the most common albums around.

Terrific to own if you like Bing. Everyone should have a set, and there's plenty of them.

Claude Hopkins doing "Mush Mouth" on Columbia Viva-tonal....

I WISH! I need a better copy. Actually I just won an E+ copy on English Columbia, which I hope is not too grainy.

I've seen all those titles a lot, too. Frankie Yankovic sets and the Bunny Berigan Memorial Album are some others.

You have to be careful with the red Columbias. The catalog contained many reissues of 1920s and early '30s rare jazz and blues, most of which were repressings of original Columbia and Okeh masters. In fact, there are some unissued '20s Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong recordings, among others, that were first issued on red Columbia.

Seems like I have found at least one Dorothy Shay record in every stack I've looked through in my life. I've even owned some but I don't think I've ever listened to one.

Most found: Henry Burr, The All-Star Trio, The Whatever Venetian Trio and, on cylinders Will Oakland.

Which is why I will at least give them all a cursory look. There's some nice albums, too, like early Louis Armstrong and His Hot...pressed from original metal. But you don't see THOSE all that often.

All those late 1940's Al Jolson Deccas, both singles and albums, that's what you see.


I played my Dorothy Shay Park Ave. Hillbilly set once.
