Mudcat Friends,

I'm on the hunt for any information I can find about a record made by Win Stracke, Ella Jenkins, (and perhaps Ginni Clemmens,) for Singer Sewing Co. in the 1960s or 1970s.

I've not been able to find much about the project, just a mention from Ella Jenkins' and her manager. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I'd love to know more about it, and ultimately find a copy if it was ever released.

Thank you for your help!

Best,
Tim Ferrin

A Singer Graflex maybe?

Win (Wyn) did a couple of "Black Folk Music in America" 35mm filmstrips for Singer Education & Training Products. The panels were cued to soundtracks that came in LP (7" & 12") & later on cassette.

The sub-division was based in Chicago and the 70s timing is about right. Don't recall Jenkins or Clemmens doing the same but a lot of stuff was uncredited.

I was going to say that I had correspondence from somebody who was doing research on the work of Ella Jenkins, but I couldn't remember who that person was. So, I crosslinked this thread to our Ella Jenkins threads, at least temporarily, and then I found that the person I corresponded with was....Tim Ferrin.
Hi, Tim!

Well, that sounds very promising. Thank you!

Now, does anyone have a copy?! Looks like there are four in libraries on worldcat, but nothing close to Chicago.

FYI - I was mis-remembering. The third person involved was likely Brother John Sellers, not Ginni Clemmens.
