Thank you for the website.I think those albums may have been recorded sometime in the
late fifties or early sixties.I had,some forty odd years ago,a Columbia LP of them but I
remember them issuing a spate of classical music albums.I also remember that Audio
Fidelity claimed that it was they who released the first true stereo LP back in 1957.Those
were the days when the manufacturers told you just what equipment they used:everythi-
ng from the mikes to the cutting lathes,cutting heads,tape recorders to the actual record-
ing tape that was used at the session.Audio Fidelity also released an album of Satchmo
paying a tribute to King Oliver.That particular album was also released with a different tit-
le but it escapes me at the moment.The personnel was the same as the album Satchmo
cut for Kapp Records circa 1964.That particular album was "Hello,Dolly".Back to Frankie
Assunto:I think he would have done nicely on TV.

There is quite a nice site about the original Dukes Of
Dixieland, put out by the family and with a lengthy history and news
of their legal battle.
