Very nice, thank you Reuben!

BTW, I think this discussion should be in the Song Id folder too. :)

Re: Song ID (instrumental love me or leave me)

(There really should be a master song ID thread...) There are several attempts at something like that. They always get buried. Moderators, what about a forum separate from Swinging Music called "Tune Identification" or "What's that song?" or some such? There do seem to be an awful lot of these thre...

it's been very interesting to me seeking the records these folks made under pseudonyms. Ellington's "Rockin in Rhythm" on Perfect records as The Louisiana Rhythmakers, as well as two very wonderful takes of "St. James' Infirmary" as The Ten Black Berries. Those aren't recordings under pseudonyms......

I acknowledge it may be hard to tell, but I still believe that the song in Skye and Frida's short clip was recorded by the Benny Goodman Sextet and in particular it's this alternate take of Six Appeal.

I have the Cliff Bruner and the Jimmie Rodgers box sets and about 10 other CDs issued by Bear Family. I bought them mainly for my listening and for some occasional gigs dedicated to Hillbilly/Rockabilly music. However, I DJ-ed songs for Lindy and Bal dancers off almost all my Bear Family sets/CDs.

Just one comment. From the sample clips I listened to, I would not classify that album as a Western Swing one. Country music that swings isn't necessarily Western Swing. :)

Rather than just listing albums (which is, well, mostly pointless), could people please add some notes about them? ... I would not list an album/song on this forum, unless I think it's good. Anyway, here are a few more comments on the two CDs. The Reynolds Brothers Rhythm Rascals: A Rhythm Rascal C...

I have a song id request too. :) Can someone please let me know who recorded this version of "After You've Gone"? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUsdrZaWxNE I saw the clip years ago and thought that one day I would have figured it out and found the song, but I haven't succeeded yet. Thank you, Lorenzo

I like Bear and Mosaic - and the Bear liner notes are bigger. This makes sense also by looking at the prices: for the same number of CDs Bear Family box sets seem more expensive than Mosaic ones. The Bear feels like it's aimed at high school students. That might be a particular characteristics of y...
