Two more Hery Whitter 78`s on the OKeh label
Here is a couple new discs I have recently acquired to add to the Henry Whitter posts from the past.
Henry Whitter / OKeh 40395
My Darling`s Black Mustache / The Clouds Gwine To Roll Away
recorded April 23/24, 1925 in New York City
My Darling`s Black Mustache is sort of a comic love song. The Clouds Gwine To Roll Away is sort of in the spiritual vein with a comic twist.
Henry Whitter / OKeh 40403
Love Me While I Am Living / Good-Bey, Old Booze
recorded at same session as OKeh 40395
Love Me While I Am Living is sort of a morbid love song. Good-Bye, Old Booze is an old comic song. This particular performance is Henry`s worst side I think. It`s in too high a key for his voice and his voice breaks. It`s worth hearing to hear how awful it is!
