Editorial Reviews

Brother Bones recorded one of the most instantly recognizable songs of the 20th century; ""Sweet Georgia Brown"" yet remains a virtual unknown, overshadowed by his own hit record and the world famous basketball team, The Harlem Globetrotters that adopted it as their official theme. Brother Bones a one-time shoeshine boy; working at stands in the vestibules of local barbershops.? While shining, he would whistle, snap his shoeshine rag and pop his brushes in rhythm to records being played on an old Victrola.? Brother Bones became known around town as ""Whistling Sam.""? He would also tap dance and play the bones and knives, perfecting a style which used four bones in each hand whereas most bones players used only two. By far, the most famous version of this much recorded song is the whistling, bone-clacking recording by Brother Bones and his Shadows. Recorded in the late 1940's and adopted in 1952 as the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters, this catchy tune has been played during their pre-game warm-ups and throughout their games for decades.? Millions around the world have heard it and it is probably in the top ten most listened to recordings in history.? So important to the Harlem Globetrotters is ""Sweet Georgia Brown"" that it has become their aural trademark, this is the first release devoted entirely to this long forgotten but instantly recognizable artist.
