- Holidays or no holidays, there are still records! This week, some music
appreciation kiddie discs from the early 40s, a dozen Diamond Discs mostly by
Albert Spalding, music from Mexico and Hawaii, a handful of near mint Ray
Charles 45s, Sarah Vaughan, Jayne Mansfield, and a magnetic paper recording
format I bet you've never seen before (no, it's not tape). And re-listed are
the BBC Dance Band autographs and one or two other old faves.
- New listings this week include some movie promos and star interviews, a batch
of Gramophone Shop supplements, a rare recording by a Russian poet silenced by
Stalin, Singin' Sam's "Negro Characteristic Songs", Al Smith campaign songs on
brown wax, Billy Murray on black wax but with a brown label, Alvino Rey on
transcription, Danny Kaye on another transcription, and Prokofieff in
Argentina. Plus a few of those great Al Jolson, Helen Kane and Johnny Mercer
rarities still waiting for you.
- And for the last time, closing today, the remaining Jolsons..eBay won't be
re-listing these automatically as has been the case for the last few weeks.
