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.

Georgia On My Mind

This compilation includes Hoagy Carmichael's first recording of Stardust (instrumental) from 1927 and his sixth recording of the same tune in 1942. As mentioned in another post, lyrics weren't added until 1929 by Mitchell Parrish. Chick Bullock recorded the first vocal version the next year. This series was produced by France Telecom Foundation, and included cds of Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Lena Horne, Lee Wiley, the Boswell Sisters and more. I don't know if the series continued after volume 18 or not. Enjoy. +

You're welcome. Don't miss the original vocal version of Stardust by Chick Bullock with the Mills Blue Rhythm Band here.


Alexandra said...

Wow !

Chester Proudfoot you made my day. Besides the gem of Chick Bullock, you have more versiones of Stardust here in your blog.

Thank you for all of them, I'll get them all. I love this song. Is Bing Crosby here?

Best Regards from Spain

I am uploading the 4-disc set of Crosby as I type. Stardust is on disc one. Look for it in a couple of hours or so.
