Clarence Williams & His Band - RCA Victor 38630 (1929)

Not too sure about this one. It is a vinyl (test?) pressing of one of the last records in Victor's famed 38000 series.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

**Was just informed that this is from a limited run pressed in 1964.**

Recorded in New York on April 16, 1929.


  1. Hey Pelly, If my memories are right it was in the summer of 1963 that Brian Rust contacted via the Magazine Vintage Jazz Mart the collecting community in order to find out whether they are in agreement to order directly from RCA Victor certain rare Jazz records. After the first records arrived (I think not more that 100 copies had been pressed) it had been noticed that the records were dubbed and not issued as master pressings as originally agreed with RCA. I think only two or three records had been sent off by RCA. I only have two of them: The above Clarence Williams item and Tiny Parham: Memphis Mamie / Nervous Tension. Best regards. Walter Deenik: PS: You have realy a fine site kept me busy a while. Thank you.

  2. Thank you for the compliment regarding the site and thank you for the information about the record above.

    The update was indeed found in the fine print of Brian Rust's entry of this 78 in his Jazz discography.
