Hello Gorgeous

Time flies, only it hasn't been fun putting in 60-70 hours/week. Well, here at last is some more Chick Bullock with Volume 2 of 1932. I've got several of these on 78s, and the Waring tunes appear elsewhere, however for expediency I've opted to pull all of these from mp3s that I've acquired from other sources. I think my hard drive with my Bullock rips is stored away at the moment, and these are all I have access to at the moment, and it's been too long since I've posted more tunes from my favorite artist of the era. Some of these tunes are rather mundane with bland arrangements, but then there are some really nice gems. It would be hard to equal the versions by the Mills Brothers', but both Shine and I Heard are very nice. Dixie and Business in F are nice and jumpy, as they should be, backed by Gene Kardos and His Orchestra. A different Kardos version of the latter is available elsewhere in the blog. Oh, Monah features Dick Robertson backed by a chorus that includes Chick Bullock, which may be the only time he sang back-up (he did trade verses with Cab Calloway on one tune). Another tune, If You Were Only Mine, has a melody that I swear is used in another Bullock recording. I think it may be Crying Myself To Sleep, but I could be mistaken. So much of the music from this era blurred the lines between originality and plagiarism, if not wipe them out altogether. It's amazing that it wasn't known as the Litigious Age. Another enjoyable side is Is I In Love, I Is, backed again by the Kardos orchestra. Listeners may be more familiar with the Dick Robertson version, as he also recorded many of the same tunes presented here. Well, enough of my drivel. On to the music, and let's hope the next installment isn't so far off. *Note: I suggest deleting the image in the download in favor the one above. Enjoy! +

I have been searching for this album for so long! Specifically this version of 'Hummin' to myself'

I am making a horror game and tie in story in the style of H.P Lovecraft, I may just name the main character 'Volstead' (Chester Volstead maybe?)
In honour to this wonderful upload.
There wouldn't be a problem with that would there? Please do tell me if I don't have permission to.

Glad you like the music! Feel free to use any name you like. Volstead was the name of the senator who introduced the Prohibition legislation, and Chester comes from the Gunsmoke character. Neither are mine to claim.
