Update On Links

March 18, 2013 - I'm now using various file sites with varying success. With over 200 albums listed here, obviously I cannot upload everything at once. So if you're dying to hear something, please post a comment on that particular post and I will move it up in the priority queue. Enjoy!

Any posts taken down as a result of the sniveling coward will be re-upped. Check the link below for where to find them in the event that this site is unable to repost them. Don't forget to bookmark http://whereismrvolstead.blogspot.com/ in the event that the internet terrorists shut this page down.

Don't You Make Me High

Another one out of print and getting harder to find, this contains all of Blue Lu Barker's pre-war recordings. Blue Lu was born, raised and buried in New Orleans and her funeral even turned into a popular video broadcast spotlighting the town's jazz funeral traditions. Some of the great jazz players are here - Chu Berry, Buster Bailey, Henry "Red" Allen, and Blu Lu's husband Danny Barker, among others. Billie Holiday cited her as her biggest influence. Enjoy. +

Comrade I attempted to DL some of these tunes using this Rube Goldburgian system you use which gave my Mac some reflux and produced nothing. Getting insulted by that site who sniffs at my unwillingness to pass along a few Euros in order to get something that approximates efficiency in the 21st century is also annoying. It sounds like it was written by a snotty French waiter.
"Monsieur Englaish peasant person who is too cheap to get this stuff
you can wait till de cows do come home"
Isn't there a slightly more humane way to do this?

No fee necessary to use rapidshare, just click on 'free user' and wait a few secs. Usually 1 sec per mb of filesize. Then save to your computer. The whole purpose of this experiment is to share so that you can hear something you might like, and then ultimately purchase. There is no charge. That would be illegal, and we wouldn't want that. Tsk, tsk. Gardening reprobate. ;-)

Apparently nobody downloaded this fine album, so the link expired. I'll re-upload as soon as I can. Check back after the weekend.

I, too, would like to hear the Blue Lu Barker album. Could it be reposted when you have time?

Thank you.

Sorry it took so long to re-post, but the new link is there in .zip format (no more .7z in case anyone cares). I gave it a listen and there shouldn't be any issues with the rip, but let me know if otherwise.

It would be appreciated if you could re-upload this.
