While more of a fan of instrumentals from the shellac era, an appreciation for Bowlly's vocals has recently set in.
Checking the online Bowlly discography, this does appear to be his only side with bandleader Bram Martin.
Recorded in London on June 8, 1939.
my father used to play trombone with Bram martinReplyDelete
As you seem to be a bit of a knowledgable sort do you have any 78 records of Billy merrin and his commanders because my father played trombone with him as well as Bram Martin and I am only able to trace his early life through his music> Any information would be gratefully received.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment...I really enjoy seeing them written by people with familial connections to the records and music.ReplyDelete
Unfortunately, most of my knowledge comes from internet searches and a few volumes of discographies. I don't remember running across any Billy Merrin records in my collection but that doesn't mean I don't have any...rather that I'm just not familiar with the name enough to recall. I will definitely be on the look out next time I go rummaging through the garage.
Keep checking back as there isn't much rhyme or reason to what I post and you never know what will pop up next.
Do You Have "Ten Pretty Girls" and "Night Over Shanghai" by Bram Martin on Regal Zonophone ?ReplyDelete
The titles you are interested in are on this videoDelete
I doubt I have any other 78s by Bram Martin. The only reason I had the one above is because of Al Bowlly.ReplyDelete
