Big Bill Broonzy's piano blues, released January 1935...

big-bill-hard-headed-woman-oriole-78-s.j

As mentioned previously, an influence on Robert Johnson, released June 1935...

Big Joe Williams with some great fiddle, and of course, the washboard. From December 1935...

I have nothing for new record labels from 1935. Instead, I do have several of my favorite automobiles...

A 1935 Auburn Sport Coupe...

A little lower on the social ladder, the cheap baby Packard 120 Club Coupe. (Inline 8 vs the Twin-Six V12 of more expensive Packard models)...

And one last termite special. One that sits on the bottom rung of the social ladder, but was the peak of GM styling, in my opinion; 1935 Chevy Master DeLuxe Coupe...

(I can't help it; Mid-1930s transitional coupe bodies and suicide doors make my heart flutter. I will try to avoid posting more cars, now.)

Mr. Charlie (also Charley) Patton...

blues1.jpg

Delta blues greatness, and his finest recordings, in my opinion. Also the last two recordings before his death in April of 1934. The B-side is '34 Blues', but I can't seem to find a picture of it...

charlie-patton-poor-me-vocalion-78-s.jpg

 

A brief side note about the economics of these 78s (and why I won't be collecting any of them anytime soon!): any single 78rpm by Robert Johnson will cost four figures and can be viewed as 'reasonable'. The last listed sell price for the above (Vocalion 02651) that I have seen posted was $17,211.11. And that isn't as bad as one coming up in a few days. In fact, that $17k figure wouldn't even buy one side/song of the upcoming record. (While vinyl 45s and 33.3s can run insanity, too, not being interested in anything by The Beatles or Elvis eliminates most of the top end of the list of the most expensive pressings of those formats.)

 

A taste of 1934 Texas...

In 1934, the US version of Decca Records was formed by the UK version. Decca would get bought out by a talent agency named MCA, Inc. in 1962. MCA would have to leave the talent agency business with the purchase, but it seemed to work out pretty well for them.

I don't have a picture of US Decca #100, but the second pressing they released was this September 1934 78rpm..

I think the Brits were out to make a statement early on that they were serious about entering the US record business, based on that guy's name.

The depths of the Depression. There were just not many recordings made.

 

From Georgia...

From Alabama...

And one of the best songs ever done, in my opinion...

R-3600058-1355943230-1654.jpeg.jpg

(I'm not sure if that is a first pressing or even what version it is. The song was first published in 1927, but since we are at the worst of the Depression and nobody was buying or making music, this December 1933 copy will have to work.)

I missed their death year of 1934 yesterday, so here are Bonnie and Clyde in 1933

By the way, an image search for 1933 turns out to be a real downer

These posts have all been fascinating. Thanks for posting them. I love how the records have a brief description of what's on them ("vocals with guitar accompaniment"). I don't know why that makes me chuckle. Why do so many of them say they're not licensed for radio broadcast?

When did NFL officials change to wearing black stripes instead of red? And, did college football officials also wear red stripes at any time or just NFL? @Zebra Frog do you know?

Pretty sure this was an AFL thing.  I don't think NFL refs ever wore red ...

Because the same piece of wax, vinyl, or shellac (or later; open reels, tape carts, CDs - and currently; digital files) that is approved for radio broadcast would cost a lot more than the few cents of these. That's because, in the music industry mentality, a disc jockey playing a tune for public broadcast is going to cost sales, not actually inspire them. (That would change later on when Alan Freed got caught in the kickback scandal with money being paid out to play it on air as much as possible.)

 

It is also a means of the labels being allowed to control the sales of records. They are going to do everything they can to push a new artist, versus one about to have a contract expire and just meeting a contract quota so they can go to a different label.

 

Legally speaking, any DJ that you have heard that brought his own record collection into the studio and played it on air was in violation of copyright infringement. Alice Cooper does it (or did it if he still has his syndicated show; I haven't heard it in years) every week. It is generally the same exact record as what the public buys, only with a different label.

 

Here is an example of a radio use label for a 45 that I already posted (they can also be found with "For DJ/radio use only" or with indications of "Promo Copy")...

the-fabulons-give-me-back-my-ring-ember-

And the normal commercial one...

the-fabulons-smoke-from-your-cigarette-e

 

The short answer, without being too political, is that it is a crooked industry trying to turn an abstract idea of pressure waves disrupting the air into a product. One they will sell you, but you have no claim to owning, and can only do with it as they tell you. Any other business operated this way would have been shut down in court ages ago.

 

The really short answer is that current copyright laws are stupid and need to be addressed.

 

(And I probably failed at the not getting too political part.)
