Brand New 78s??

Browsing the web, I recently came across a site for Rivermont Records. They still make 78 rpm records! They have 2 sets of limited edition 78's available.

One set contains two 78's consisting of the brilliant cornetist, Bix Beiderbecke's 4 piano solos...3 of which Bix never put down on shellac. Pianist Bryan Wright records Candlelights, Flashes, In The Dark & the  masterpiece...originally recorded by Bix in 1927 on Okeh 40916...In A Mist. Click here to read more about the set and to hear samples of each track.

The other 78 available is by Andy Schumm & His Flatland Gang. The tracks are Down In The Gallion & The Swing. Down In The Gallion was originally recorded by John Williams' Synco Jazzers in 1927. That original line up featured a young pianist named Mary Lou Burleigh who would later marry the band leader and become arguably the most prominent female figure in jazz history, Mary Lou Williams. The Swing was originally recorded in 1924 by Johnny De Droit & His New Orleans Orchestra. Click here to read more about Andy Schumm & His Flatland Gang and to hear samples of each track.
