Re: New Frog CDs
- Regarding the Bernie Young CD, Frog really do know what takes they used. There was a proof-reading failure. Paul Swinton advises me that the takes actually used (and another correction) are as
Track 1: "Tin Roof Blues" should be 1535-2
Track 4: "What's The Use Of Lovin'?" should be 1537-1
ADD THE FOLLOWING AFTER TRACK 4: Pm 12060 (1537-1 only) ISSUED AS BY ANNA
OLIVER AND YOUNG'S CREOLE JAZZ BAND
Track 5: "Jazzbo Jenkins" should be 1538-1
Track 6: "Dearborn Street Blues" should be 1587-2
Track 8: "Quit Knocking On My Door" should be 2418-1
Track 19: "Broken Hearted Blues" should be 2448-1
Track 20: "Jealousy Blues" should be 2451-4

> Following the info on the latest Off The Record/Archeophone, I'd like to draw your attention to three new CDs on the Frog label. They are:
> Frog Spawn - the second batch, another compilation of rare odds and ends. This time, it really does include the Blue Rhythm Orchestra's "Keep Your Temper"! Other choice items include the two sides by Hot and Heavy, a trumpet/piano duo sometimes discussed as a possible Herb Morand item (but most likely not), the sole title by Everett Robbins and his Syncopating Robbins - said to include Eddie Vincent on trombone, Sammy Price's earliest items, the Kentucky Jazz Babies which neatly complement the Clifford Hayes reissue, Jelly James' two Gennetts which complement CD reissues on Jazz Oracle and Retrieval devoted to Fess Williams and a pair by the Wabash Trio (Walter Bennett and JC Johnson!). Unfortunately, there is one title from this session missing, as are two by the Georgia Cotton Pickers (which sleeve note writer Richard Rains doesn't really like anyway). I would hope that their reissue in this fine CD encourages owners of the missing tracks to offer them for inclusion in a further Batch of Frog Spawn.
> If you bought the Frog Blues and Jazz Year Book, your appetite for the Bernie Young CD should have been whetted by an article by Chris Hillman. Young was a cornetist of New Orleans origin, now almost forgotten, but well worth your attention. Completists might miss alternate takes by Young's Creole Band which were recorded for Paramount, but Paul Swinton told me that these were only available in a quality not coming up to Frog's standards. While the booklet credits the clarinet work on some of the Paramounts to the fabled Philmore Holley, Preston Jackson said in his autobiography that Happy Caldwell is on clarinet throughout. The best recorded session on the CD is by Arthur Sims' Creole Roof Orchestra, available complete for the first time in the CD era.
> A CD devoted to Earl McDonald neatly complements other Frog CDs devoted to the Louisville Jug Band scene. While most have been around before, the audio quality has been greatly improved by Frog's engineer, Nick Dellow. Yes, and "Dancing Blues" no longer has any speed fault.
> All three are recommended if you have any interest in this kind of music. You can buy them directly from Frog (as the OTR can be bought directly from Archeophone) - producers prefer direct sales since they receive more funds to put into new projects.
