Akins Birmingham Boys - Columbia 15348-D
I Walked And Walked / There Ain`t No Flies On Auntie
recorded October 31, 1928 in Atlanta, Georgia
Here is another group that only recorded one disc. My copy of this is pretty rough, but it`s plenty listenable. I don`t know anything about this group. Both of the songs sound like they might be old comedy pop tunes of the Vaudeville type. Enjoy!

Here`s a pretty neat LP. Carson Robison was a country recording artist from the beginning of the recorded country music industry and was on hundreds, if not thousands of old 78`s. He started as sort of a studio artist playing guitar and singimg harmony for Vernon Dalhart, then he started recording solo and with other artists also. He also wrote many songs. His specialty in the 1920`s was disaster and topical songs.
I`m not sure, but I think the recordings on the LP were the last recordings he made, and most if not all of them were issued on 78`s and 45`s. I`m pretty sure all the material here is likely written by him. So we have some comedy songs, some cowboy material, some skit type tracks and some topical songs that borderline on propaganda. He wrote many anti-Hitler and anti-enemy songs during World War 2 and some anti-Communist items after the war, one of which can be heard here. Happy downloading!

Chas. Winters And Elond Autry / OKeh 45207
Hand Me Down My Silver Trumpet / You Tell Me Your Dream And I`ll Tell You Mine
recorded February 25, 1928 in Memphis, Tennessee
Here`s the next entry in my "series" of complete issued recordings. This is the only disc issued by this duet. This disc is pretty rough, but I`m pretty pleased with the sound quality I could get from it considering condition. Also there is a skip or two that I couldn`t get to play through.
Hand Me Down My Silver Trumpet sounds to me like it may have origins in the spiritual category. A pretty snappy fiddle/guitar singing duet. You Tell Me Your Dream And I`ll Tell You Mine sounds like a late 19th century tear jerker to me. The style is so different than the other side it`s sort of hard to believe it`s the same duet. Happy downloading!!

Here`s something that I think will be interesting to several archive followers. I don`t really have any comments to make about this music as I don`t really care for this type of music that falls into what I`d call protest songs, but I still wanted to post it for those interested.

Carl Conner / Columbia 15076-D
Jones And Bloodworth Case / Story Of Gerald Chapman
recorded April 23, 1926 in Atlanta, Georgia
Here`s another artist that recorded only one disc. I have no information about Mr. Conner. Both of the songs are topical type songs about murders. I haven`t done an internet search about the cases, I doubt it`d be too difficult to read about these cases.

Here`s a neat Grandpa Jones LP, all the tracks are taken from the old color Gannaway "Country Show" TV show from the early 1950`s. For most Grandpa Jones fans there`s not going to be anything new on this LP, but it`s a good one just the same.
