The Arabain Knights - Gennett 6116 (1927)

Not sure where I picked this one up but I'm 100% positive that it came home with me because of the labels. This group appears to be a Nathan Glantz band with vocals by Charles Hart.

Recorded in New York on April 15, 1927.


  1. Hi! How do you know it was recorded in NY? I'm curious, because my grandpa Zeke Youngblood had a band named the Arabian Knights, and they recorded some things on Gennett that I have been hoping to find someday. But they were from Indiana and I'm pretty sure they would have recorded in Richmond. This might be another group, same name. Christy, Indiana

    1. Thanks for the comment.

      I found the information in The American Dance Band Discography 1917-1942 by Brian Rust. He has the above group listed as a pseudonym for the prolific Nathan Glantz outfit.

      I do believe that Gennett first recorded out of New York studios and in 1921, built a studio in Richmond.

      Would you happen to know any song titles that your grandfather recorded?


    2. Hi, two years later! No unfortunately I don't know what songs they recorded. Thanks.
