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.

Riffin' The Scotch

Here's some nice music from Mr. Goodman. A short cd, only 42 minutes, but it swings nonetheless. These were recorded in 1934 and I don't think there's a bad tune in the batch. For whatever reason Biograph decided to improve their cover from a beige background to this. I wonder if it improved sales? According to the internet, the personnel are: Benny Goodman (clarinet); Red McKenzie (vocals); Dick McDonough (guitar); Art Rollini (tenor saxophone); Mannie Klien, Bunny Berigan (trumpet); Jack Jenny (trombone); Arthur Schutt (piano); Artie Bernstein (bass guitar); Gene Krupa, Stan King (drums). The only vocal however is on the last track. Enjoy. I've been listening to these rips for over an hour, so they should be good. +

howdy..still trying to down load stuff -even slumed down and used a windows -the rapid share thing takes 15 minutes and I have ADD so I can't bring myself to wait. I would like to hear these recordings.
I guess under the current atmosphere of "Yes we can" I should try to hang in. But then again I live in a country run by an accountant in a blue sweater who misses George Bush.
As you can tell, I'm confused

Comrade, I feel your pain but it's the only way to share unless I upload each song individually which would be a nightmare. Hang in there - click the download button and after 15 minutes you'll get to unzip and listen forever. It's worth the wait.

Thanks for sharing this.

I'm eager to hear this, and a number of your other posts, but I'm stumped. I see the password, but where's the link to the download?

The link is always the + sign at the end of the intro. Enjoy.

Ah, so! That was a bit to subtle for me. Thank you.

Chester Proudfoot said...

Subtle, that's me. ;-)

Chester, this blog is an absolute treasure house! Wonderful material and excellent commentary to boot. Must be a labour of love. Thank you.

Love your blog and the era it encompasses. Could you please re-upload Benny Goodman's Riffin' The Scotch...can't source it from any other site.

Thanks, glad you found the way here. It's been re-upped. Enjoy!
