Subject: Records you're Still Looking For
From: Jerry Rasmussen
Date: 03 Mar 05 - 11:57 AM

Tops on my list was Skokiann by the Bullawayo Sweet Rhythm Band. It took me close to 30 years to finally find it re-issued. Don't Go To Strangers by the Orioles took even longer. The only re-issue was on a Boxed set of everything they ever recorded, which sold for something like $160. All the other collections left out Don't Go To Strangers. Finally, I found an import "Best Of" that has the recording on it. It sounded as sweet as I remember it, when I finally put the CD on to play. The original recording of The Mockingbird by the Four Lads has never been re-issued, but I still have my 45 rpm and a re-recorded version that isn't as good on another "Best Of" collection. Today, I ordered a not yet released CD of the Four Lads which has Harmony Brown on it... another recording I've wanted to hear again for years.

That leaves

Guitar Boogie Shuffle by the Supersonics (later "covered by the Ventures)
Bluebird Over the Mountains by Ersel Hickey
The first Insect Trust album, which HAS been re-issued but is a little pricey for my tastes

I'm sure a couple of ohers will come to mind.

Are there any recordings you've been looking for for years, and haven't found? Or found recently, as I have?

Jerry

I finally found information about a recording I've been looking for for about thirty years. It seems that a white Southern Gospel a cappella group known as the Harmoneers are responsible for the song that I've been searching for, "The Hallelujah Boogie". I suspected but could not remember that it was an RCA label 45rpm. I did remember that it was a green translucent record. I also found that is was recorded in the early 50s and that it is RCA #0321, but still have had no luck locating a copy.

Bill, I've got THREE albums by Walter Forbes, including the one in question.

Ballads and Bluegrass RCA Victor 2472, 1962
Folk Song Festival RCA Victor 2670, 1963
Nashville Coyote JMI 4005, 1973

I saw Walter Forbes in person at the Grand Ol' Opry (I still remember that he did Cumberland Mountain Deer Chase!) and was mightily impressed. When I saw 2472 in the stores, I really wanted it and always intended to buy it, but money was tight in those days right after college, and I delayed too long. All of a sudden it was gone, and though I looked everywhere, I had no luck. Periodic searches over the years came up empty. Then two or three years ago, I saw the lot on eBay, and really jumped. I am not sure anymore, but I think I may have paid $15 for the three of them.

At the moment, my equipment is not set up for ease of duplication, and I can't honestly say when it will be. We'll work on it.

One you and I have discussed before, Bill, was the second Perry County Music Makers album on Davis Unlimited. Still no luck on that one.

There are others, but that's enough for now.

"Skiffle in Stereo" by the Orange Blossom Jug Five (Lyrichord LLST 773) -- Dave Van Ronk's first record

"A Guy Called Carawan"   Guy Carawan (English Columbia SX 6065)

"Four For Fun" Rory & Alex McEwen with Richard and Carolyne [sic] Farina (Waverley ELP 113) -- a Scottish EP that included Richard Farina and his then wife Caroline Hester.

"Home Made Songs and Ballads" Paul Clayton (Monument M4001/SM14001)

I'd be real happy to find any of those, myself...

You never know. Collectors Choice Music reissues a lot of unusual stuff... I was looking to replace my Kaleidescope album but never could find it as a reissue. Now Collectors Choice has a 3 CD set for $21.95 that includes all FOUR of their Epic albums...

I also have picked up stuff on eBay... got all three Pennywhistler albums on vinyl for something like $15 total. I don't know that any of them have been reissued.

An album I had owned in the 60's was "Boss Guitar" by Wes Montgomery. I lent it to someone in 1968 and never got it back, and as it was on the Riverside label it was never re-issued until recently. I now have it on CD with bonus tracks after 35 years of searching.

Judy Garland recorded Bei Mir Bistu Scheyn (not necessarily with that spelling)
for one of the Andy Hardy movies. It was cut from the movie, but it's still around,
and I'm looking for it. Well, I found it on a CD set that has dozens of other
Judy Garland recordings, but it sells for more than I want to pay when I really
only want the one track. Maybe I'll see it on a remainder table someday....

Wesley S...I saw Sleepy Man Blues on ebay not too long ago...it was up to about $40, so I emailed Geoff thru his web site and declared him "officially vintage."

When I think of a recording for which I would be willing to pay way more than I probably should, I check out www.gemm.com. I have even found some of those Japanese CDs mentioned above of obscure recordings - also at no small expense, but I was sure glad to find them.

For me, I am looking for "You Are What You Eat" - various artists including John Simon, Tiny Tim, and others.

Good luck.

Loudon Wainwright's first album I just got last year on eBay after spending 30 years going into record shops and heading right for his section (Ha - if he had one!!).

I lent a friend Duster Bennett's first? album "Smilin' Like I'm Happy" about ten years ago. Sadly my friend died and I couldn't really go round to his house and ask "Before you sort out his stuff, can I have my album back?" ( I know he'll probably laugh at this!!)

I'm really fascinated to read these posts. It's not surprising that there are particular records that mean so much to each of us.

My niece's son, and I when he was about fifteen got into exchanging music. He wanted to hear all sorts of stuff and was pretty open minded about it. He had friends who started a Punk-Ska band and he wanted to hear more of the old ska and reggae, so I sent him a whole batch of cassettes of jazz, soul, rhythm and blues, folk, black gospel, reggae, ska... you name it. In return, he sent me a cassette that he put together titled "Music We lived Our Lives By." I thought it was SO great that a fifteen year old kid already realized his life had a soundtrack. So, I did one of my own and sent it to him.

Think I'll start a thread on this...

Mr. Rassmuessen



You certainly have more than one regrets from your past.



Perhaps, you should consider therapy?



Many MC'ers would perhaps volunteer to refresh the steams-of-consceinous they have traversed before your faltering trapsings. Some might free...others might require a fee (for the book, CD, consultation)



I think you need it.

My very small record collection includes one I bought second hand sometime in the 70's. I haven't played it for years as I gave away my old record player sometime in the early 90's after not using it for a long time.

A couple of years ago I found a track by the group on a compilation album - taken from a CD re-release of the LP!! It took a while to get it thru my favourite CD shop & it is as great as I remember & also has bonus tracks. A real treasure that I play a lot.

The record is Hush, only album by local group Extradition & is worth up to $1000. Literally a treasure.

For my birthday a few years ago, my son tracked down a record that I wanted, from this place - Sonic Recollections

It was a record of Wayne and Shuster with four comedy sketches on it:

Rinse the blood off my toga
A Shakespearean baseball game
Frontier Psychiatrist
I was a TV addict

It's very funny stuff - I didn't think I could get it any more, so I was very pleased. The record was not new, but it was in perfect condition. So they might be worth a look.

That album and Australian Bush Ballads by A.L. Lloyd are two of my most treasured albums. I only have the Bush Ballads album on cassette now, as I must have loaned my record and never got it back. Have to check to see if that was ever re-issued on CD.

Guest makes a good point. Owning records is pleasureable. Actually listening to them is another thing. I know that there are Catters who still listen to vinyl often, but I'm not one of them. I rarely listen to albums or 45's unless it's to specifically tape or learn a song.   It's been at least a year since I've played a record.

Good title for the song... variation on Dust On The Bible.

Dust On The Turntable.

Howzabout you? Are you looking for records because you play records often, or are you primarily looking for re-issues on CD. (I'm mostly in the latter category, although I continue to pick up vinyl occasionally because there hasn't been a re-issue. I bought all three Pennywhistlers albums on eBay a couple of years ago. One of these years I may actually listen to them.

Hmmm... wonder if they've been reissued by now..

I have to replace a turntable because the one in my office was damaged during a break-in a couple of weeks ago. The young thugs who were stealing the stereo dropped the turntable on it's head, obviously not requiring the obsolete device. In the end they left the stereo behind, because a neighbor interrupted them (thank goodness!). The turntable works, but I don't trust it to continue to work, or to be up to it's old self. It wasn't a particularly expensive one, and this weekend I picked up an inexpensive Sony (the place carries only two of them, and truth be told, I have another, much better older one in the other room). I had to chuckle, when the sales guy was so ernest in cautioning me that (as he pointed to a receiver button in the store shelf) "Your receiver has to have a button for Phono." From his expression, I thought he was going to tell me something serious, like it was going to need a different type of plug now or maybe a critical tip for wiring speakers.

A couple of years ago, I went in to a large retail electronics store to buy a new phonograph needle. When I told the salesperson what I was looking for, he went bovine on me... just looked at me blanky. All that was missing was the cud. When I said, "Phonographs... you know, those flat black things you put on a turntalbe, and they go around and around?" And he gave me an even more confused expression. "They have a hole in the middle, like CDS, but they're a lot bigger and the hole is a lot smaller." Still blank. After he told me that they didn't have any, I went and found them myself. Before I left, I showed them to him so he'd know the next time.

I don't if the reason for having so much of his recordings, and ones he did with Ewan MacColl out of circulation is because of legal hangups, or if even the folk recording companies don't see enough of a market for them, outside of what's been re-released on CD already (Leviathan, Blow Boys Blow, and a few others).

I've recently been borrowing some of the old records from our local library. They've actually got a pretty good collection of some folkways recordings.
But it never fails,when I check them out,I always get that look & the same comment,"We haven't had anyone borrow these in years".

I've spent the past few months converting my vinyl over to cd,so it's given me the chance to listen again to music I haven't heard for awhile.
It's been great to be able to hear artists like Hedy West,Ola Belle Reed,Barbara Dane,Mark Spolstra again.

Speaking of Barbara Dane. The record album I'm hoping someday to stumble across at an affordable price is her album called "Barbara Dane Sings The Blues".
I've seen it come up for sale a couple of times on Gemm,but the price is way out of my range.
Smithsonian/Folkways has a copy of the recording for sale, but I'd really like to run across that yard sale bargain vinyl for 5 bucks someday.

Back in the early 60's I was browsing through a small store front music store in lower Manhattan and came across an album with a mandolin concerto on one side, and a guitar concerto on the other. It was on the Vox label... a prominent label for classical music at that time. I bought it, and was really transported away by the mandolin concerto. I almost wore that record flat, over the years. About 20 years ago, I tried to find the mandolin concerto on CD and enlisted a person I knew in a record store who claimed he could find any classical music ever recorded on CD. He spent months looking for it, using every obscure resource at his disposal, and came up empty handed.

Part of the problem is that no one is sure who the composer was. It is "credited" to Guilani, but there were several composers of that name, and there is no documentation to which one this was... or whether it was just another Guilani who never had another piece preserved. A couple of years ago, I finally found a CD, released on the Erato label. The liner notes are in German. Because of the uncertainty of who wrote the piece, I was very hesitant when I put the CD on the first time.

But, as Bobert would say, "Dang" it's that good ole boy Guilani! It sounds just as great as it did that first day I took it home nad put it on the turntable in the early 60's.

Can't help with the song titles LWIII sang on MASH but can give you the dates etc of the 3 episodes he appeared in as Captain Calvin Spalding. Info from epguides.com

He was in 3 episodes in the 3rd season:

the overall 50th episode "Rainbow Bridge" broadcast 17 Sep 1974,
the 58th "There is nothing like a nurse" 19 Nov 1974, and
the 69th "Big Mac" 25 Feb 1975

The titles are probably working titles as I don't recall the series having on-screen episode titles. These are the 2nd, 10th and 21st episodes respectively of the 3rd season. The dates are first US broadcast I'd guess.

This may help you track the episodes down.

Oh yeah: I've been looking for a couple of songs by Stuart Hamblin. Hamblin was pretty popular in the 50's as a country artist, and wrote two classic songs: This Old House and It Is No Secret. So far, I haven't found either of those songs recorded by him, as re-issues. And, I don't have them on record. I'd like to learn the songs, and I always prefer to learn them from the writer, if recordings are available.

Hah! I never thought of trying Mudcat for the records I want! Years ago I lent an LP and EP to someone who never gave them back and I've never been able to replace them. They were Australian and probably the English and American Catters wouldn't have heard of them. The LP was "Procession Live at Sebastians" and the EP was "Anthem". The single Anthem got (I think) to number 1 in the Aussie charts. If anyone could come up with them, or other Procession records I'd be eternally grateful. When they split up, one of them came to England and joined Manfred Mann for a while.

If you ever wanted to see my Dad really annoyed, borrow a record and don't give it back. Or tell him about one that was borrowed and destroyed. A friend borrowed an LP then let it melt on a radiator, and blithely gave me $5 as if I could replace it easily. It took a while--and when I told Dad about this happening, he was really ticked--as much about the destruction as the loss of the album to me personally. NO one could use it melted! (I think it was Switched on Bach)

I work at a university library with a fine arts branch. The librarians occasionally tell stories of students finding citations for recordings, that when they're handed the LP they look so puzzled that they must be taken in hand and shown how to play them. (I guess it's time for the "this year's college freshman was born in 1987" essay to make the rounds.)

Another alarming thing about walking into my office and seeing the turntable on it's head was seeing the Carolyn Hester album on the floor. I'd been talking with other Mudcatters about her work a couple of days earlier and hadn't filed the LP back with the rest after listening to it. The LP appears to be fine (it was in the sleeve and cover, also) but I can imagine how that would look on an insurance claim!

I checked eBay out of curiosity, and they had a Stuart Hamblin lp. in very good condition up for auction. I was the only bidder, and won it. (That's probably as good an evidence as any why they haven't re-issued his stuff.) It's titled It Is No Secret, which is the primary song I was looking for, but doesn't have a track list. I guess I'll find out whe I get it, if it has This Old House on it.

Alba, there are a number of groups called Contraband, some even spelt with a K. Given your name my guess is it's this one your after.

The one that issued the self titled album was a Scottish folk rock band featuring Mae MacKenna, George and Billy Jackson, John Martin, and one or two others.

They issued their only album around 1970 on the Transadlantic label. There was also a single, "Lady for Today" (written by Rosie Hardman).
The material was a mixture of Trad and singer songwiter "covers."

After the band broke up Mae continued to record solo, George, Billy and John formed Ossian. George founded Iona records, Billy (now William), wrote and recorded Harp music, and John formed Easy Club and also played with the Tannahill Weavers.

I imagine that Castle Communications own the Masters as they seem to have the Transadlantic labels back catalogue.

The LP comes up on ebay uk reasonably regularly, sometimes for a lot, sometimes for a little, just your luck. I don't think that a CD has been reissued, but might be wrong.

I'm writing this from memory, but if you need more details let me know and I'll reply with the album in front of me when I get home.

The main other Contraband is a rock/blues outfit who've beem around since the 70's. Type Contraband CD into Google and you'll get lots of hits on them.

Everything Alexander The Great recorded is available on CD reissue. The best compilation is the one from Ace Records (UK), it's marginally better than the Razor & Tie issue. His very last CD, "Lonely Just Like Me" (Elektra) may now be deleted, but crops up on eBay. He cut this as his "rediscovery" record, great songs, good production that brought his beautiful, soulful voice out. It looked as though this one would break him through after years of poverty....and then the poor man died suddenly. He's the only singer whose songs have been covered by The Beatles, Stones, Bob Dylan, Elvis P, Elvis C, Nick Lowe, John Prine, Robert Plant, Roger McGuinn, etc.....and he's now laying in a grave without a headstone.

I have a Philips DR600 CD burner. It's also a player, but I use it just for copying and playback. I bought it 2nd-hand from a friend and paid £60, a fair price for a two-year old piece. You can get new ones with bigger hard drives, and they're generally available, you shouldn't have to go to specialist stores.

I looked at using a software programme for my computer, but had a couple of problems with this: I use Apple Mac, so the software choices are limited; and, more importantly, my computer is in another part of the house from the hi-fi, so even if I could get a long-enough cable, there'd be too much running backwards and forwards between the two. And I'm no hi-fi or computer wizz, so I went for the most convenient option. The burner fits in with the rest of the hi-fi separates, being the same dimension as the amp, etc.

I think the quality of the recording will ultimately depend on how good your record deck is, and investing in a new stylus is no bad thing. I haven't yet looked at the possibilities of scratch elimination, etc; some computer progs have all this, I don't know how good they are.

I'll probably still end up keeping the old vinyl albums - being over-sentimental, anally-retentive, you name it - AND have them on CDr, creating another pile of music - AND stick them on the computer, iTunes...

NormanD, thanks for the commentary as well as the burner information. When I was burning some files from cassettes I was in my office next to my computer, but the sound system in here doesn't have all of the adjustments that the receiver and decks in the front room have. You've illustrated a great point--I don't need to bring all of my best equipment into the office, or move my computer into the living room if I get a setup like yours, or get some really long cables. (Actually, I have the cables, but haven't used them yet. As you say, it's the running back and forth that makes the task less precise than it needs to be).

There are a couple of threads going now where people are looking for particular recordings of things. I'll have to read through and make a list, then sit down with my LPs and see what I can find. If nothing else, it's great to revisit those old vinyl friends.

Bob Gibson was very influential in forming my love for folk music, and it was a special honor for me many years later to book him for a folk festival I ran. It's not often that we get to meet our heroes, so it meant a lot to me.

Very special.

A 45 rpm that I used to have and would like to have again is a song called "Unitar Rock"; on the other side it was (I think) "Cherokee Dance". Both songs were played on a one string "guitar", and one was sung in a gravely voice that made you want to clear your own throat as you listened. I don't remember who did it, but it came out in the early '50's if my memory is accurate. As a recording it is just a novelty record with no great redeeming qualities either social, cultural, or any other criteria, other than I'd like to get a copy of it still on record, dubbed to tape, or copied on to CD.

Hi, Jim: I checked out Unitar Rock on CD Universe (where you can search by song title) with no luck... I did see that I can finally get National City by the Joiner Arkansas Junior High School Band (whice has banjos AND trombones). There's a series titled Hey! Look What I Found, that has National City on one of the CDs. Talk about weird stuff... You can also own your own personal copy of Abraham, Martin & John by Mom's Mobley, or It's A Gas by Alfred E. Neuman. They have Winin' Blink' and Nod by the Simon Sisters on one of the CDs. Most of the stuff is by oddities like Tab Hunter or other non-singers. The stuff is baaaad, but not so bad that it includes anything by William Shatner..

Jerry Rasmussen,

So, you forgot to mention "Mrs. Miller's Greatest Hits"?

If you don't have Bob Gibson's last record "Making A Mess..." you are missing a gem. The songs are all by Shel Silverstein who chips in commentary, if not singing, on a few songs. Mr. Gibson's effortless singing voice is gone, but he can "sell the song" like nobody else ever could. The backing is pure Nashville studio but every note fits every word perfectly. A masterpiece of writing, singing and musicianship.

My general feeling on obscure recordings is that if it hasn't been re-issued in England, German or Japan, it never existed. I've picked up several old jazz albums on CD, re-issued in Japan. I'm waiting for one that is an old favorite of mine by Barbara Carroll. It's been almost six months on back order, but they say it will be shipped in the next week. I also picked up another favorite old album by Matt Dennis... a jazz singer and composer who wrote many standards. It too was reissued in Japan.

Let's hear it for the Japanese!

I wonder if they've ever re-issued Guitar Boogie Shuffle by the Supersonics?

Jerry if the chorus goes

Sing with me I'll sing with you
And so we will sing together, sing together sing together
Sing with me I'll sing with you and so we will sing together

Then it's a Boer war song and Praetoria is a town in that country.

Thanks. Cheap CDs of Judy Garland are available lots of places, but so far as I know
(and I've looked at many, many of these CDs) Bei Mir Bistu Sheyn is only on one of

OK, off topic, but since we're talking Bob Gibson, does anyone remember his Vermont Maid Syrup commercial? It aired the same time "Marching To Pretoria" was getting radio play. Around 1989 I got to tell him how much I liked it.

A cagey old pirate who lived in a tree
Loved syrup much better than golden jewelry.
He buried his treasure chest out in the glade
Filled with jugs of the syrup that's called Vermont Maid
So learn well this lesson from my serenade:
There's no finer syrup than sweet Vermont Maid
It's naturally flavored with the very best grade
Of real maple sugar -- that's my Vermont Maid.

My cassette player ate my copy of "Root Crops and Ground Cover" by Metamora (though I don't think they called themselves that at the time). The cassette came packaged to look like a seed packet (kinda cute). There was a great song about the monster that was supposed to live in Lake Champlain that was later used in the background of a documentary film. Can't find it anywhere.

The Stranger from the Sea, by Joe Hanson.

Several good songs, including the best translation from the Welsh of "Venture, Gwen" that I've ever heard. Hanson had a kind of "reedy" sounding tenor and he accompanied himself on the autoharp. "Obscurity" label, 10", LP.

A web search failed to turn up the record, but I learned that Joe (Joseph) Hanson was a gay writer of mysteries (hated the term "gay," preferring straight out "homosexual") with several books out. At one time, he had a radio program entitled "The Stranger from the Sea" on which he sang folk songs. I ran across the record in a record store back in the early 1950s, listened to it, but discovered I didn't have enough money on me to buy it. When I came back the following day, someone had beat me to it.

Good songs, a couple of war horses (he does "Greensleeves"), but a few songs I've never heard anywhere else. All well sung.

(There's a Blue Ridge Round My Heart) "Virginia" - the version I grew up with, owned by my late mum, was a 78 from about 1930 with an absolutely superb little trumpet break at the end, positively Satchmo.

"The Lass With The Delicate Air" by Mavis Bennett - again from around 1930. Originally from the period of the Beggars' Opera. It has been recorded since by Julie Andrews but errr....I don't think I want that version.

One which I first heard about 1968 on John Peel's programme was "Collegiana" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - tracked that one down on a double album called "Rare Junk" also containing the deathless "Even Fat Boys Can Make It In Santa Monica"

Re the above, turns out the version of "There's a Blue Ridge Round My Heart, Virginia" is in fact by the New Mayfair Dance Orchestra. No idea who's doing the "vocal refrain" but the trumpet break is by a gent called Norman Payne in the style of Bix Beiderbecke, not Louis Armstrong. And a jazz collector in Derbyshire has a copy for sale!

Isn't the Web wonderful and aren't I a sad person, now to find a cheap Dansette on eBay.

"Bright Phoebus" is indeed very sought after (I wouldn't mind a copy myself). The reason WHY it's so rare is a sorry tale told many times in this part of the aether.

I thought of another one. Do sleeves count? I have the Young Tradition first album bought from an emporium above Kenton station - it's never had a sleeve. Did it end up on some folk club wall? I suppose nobody does that with CD inners these days!

In pop and rock music there's a funny inverse relationship between quality and price. It all relates to rarity. If you want to get an original 45 rpm (or even a 78 rpm) of the Penguins singing Earth Angel, you can find one at a reasonable price because it was so popular that there are a ton of copies around. The Penguins were considered "one hit wonders" even though they recorded a lot of quality material. When they signed with Mercury, their agent made it a package deal. The Penguins were on the Dootone label and there was another unknown group who were label mates. Their manager insisted that Mercury sign the other group, too or the deal was off. The other group was the Platters.

Now if you want an original copy of the Penguins doing Oookey Ook in pristine condition, we might be able to do business.
