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.

16 September 2010

I'm Hummin', I'm Whistlin', I'm Singin'

September 16th is the 102nd birthday of Chick Bullock (thanks to Drizzz for the reminder). The actual birth date is in question, but we'll run with it anyway. I've been so busy that I haven't had much time to even look at this blog, much less upload new posts. But being the special day that it is, I hurriedly put together some songs for the occasion. This set only includes 16 tunes that I transferred from my 78s, and there are a couple of neat tunes here. For instance, you'll hear the likes of Jack Teagarden (Wagon Wheel), Joe Venuti, James P. Johnson, Clarence Williams, Russ Morgan, and the Dorsey Brothers among others. The version of Swaller-Tail Coat is the lesser-known version recorded with Todd Rollins and his Orchestra (the Clarence Williams version is in a CW post elsewhere here). My copy of this 78 is near-mint, so it should sound pretty good. There are cleaner versions of Out In The Cold Again and Old Street Sweeper on one of the Crooners and Clarence Williams cds (respectively), but I decided to include the transfers anyway. On Accounta I Love You is recorded with the Dorsey Brothers, but is credited to Smith Ballew on every pressing even though he had nothing to do with the session. Ya gotta love record companies! Well, happy birthday to Mr. Chick Bullock! And thanks to Drizzz, I was encouraged to get this post up today. Session information is included in the tags for each song. Enjoy! +
