Editorial Reviews

The sixth in Rivermont's popular Big Broadcast series, this CD features a variety of excellent jazz, dance band, and vocal recordings of the 1920s and 1930s selected by Rich Conaty, host of the long-running vintage music radio program The Big Broadcast heard Sunday evenings on WFUV-FM in New York City. Many of these selections are making their first appearance on compact disc, expertly remastered from the best available sources. Conaty provides insightful introductions to each recording in the enclosed 16-page illustrated booklet. Every selection is a stand-out, but highlights in Volume 6 include the very first recording by Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey (with the Scranton Sirens in 1923), a rare vocal by a young Jimmy Stewart from 1931, a brilliant hi-fi recording of Paul Whiteman's Orchestra from 1932, and a live 1932 broadcast by Cab Calloway from New York City. 78 minutes.

The 6th volume of the Big Broadcast series is my favourite. It offers an adventurous, eclectic blend of predominantly lesser-known mid-tempo tracks that all have a jubilant, dreamy-giddy feel. It also contains fascinating early versions of hits like "Blue Moon" and "Midnight, The Stars and You". Many thanks to the compiler Rich Conaty and the Rivermont label for adding this essential music to my collection.

Another triumph from Rich Conaty, host of the weekly radio programme "The Big Broadcast" from WFUV-FM in New York City. As with previous volumes, his approach is to pursue rare and/or hitherto unreissued recordings with the single-mindedness of a Victoroan lepidopterist, and boy,he certainly nets some goodies! For example, the opener is a rare private recording by a band that would be unknown today but for the presence in its 1923 ranks of the Dorsey brothers. The closer is another extreme rarity, a number never released commercially by Cab Calloway.

In between is as varied a mix of treasures from the twenties and thirties as you could wish for, the added attraction being that whilst most numbers are well- known to devotees of the period, they appear here in unfamiliar versions. As a result we can enjoy the glorious voice of Singin' Sam, Denny Dennis with Roy Fox, and James Stewart singing "Day After Day", to name but a few. The 16-page glossy illustrated booklet sets out background information on each track, and if you already own earlier volumes you'll need no urging to add this to your collection. If not, now's the chance to find out what you've been missing.

An absolutely wonderful series of 20s and 30 music. Up to volume 9 now. Great notes on each song, my favorite period music.

The plastic case was broken when I received it and the music sounds muffled and contorted.
