Depression. Still slim pickings. Probably the worst year.

 

The only 1932 Okeh release that I know of...

I have only found two releases from Vocalion for 1932. Only one with a picture...

(We will be revisiting some train blues soon, too.)

 

One of only a handful of releases from Paramount in 1932. Piedmont blues...

At least the future (past) is looking up and has more to offer.

It took a lot of self-restraint to not post the LP for #68 or the 'Today!' album for #66. The 78 is much cooler than the 33, though. From July 1931...

More often than not, Willie Brown was guitar accompaniment for others such as Son House and Charlie Patton. His solo debut...

More Peetie Wheatstraw. He may have been a one trick pony with all his songs sounding similar, but it is a sound I can live with...

In March 1931 Electric and Musical Industries (EMI) was founded in London by the Columbia Gramophone Company and the Gramophone Company merging. From 1931 to their 2012 breakup, they had a huge hand in electrical research and development as well as holding a lineage dating back to the beginning of recorded sound. Their studios on Abbey Road would become kind of famous for something later on. Sony, Michael Jackson's estate, David Geffen, the Blackstone Group, and Mubadala Development Company led a consortium that acquired them and sealed the end of the company. For a much more in depth look at them, it is better just to check their Wikipedia page than trying to cover it all here.

 

They didn't really do much directly under their own name as far as releases, but here is the earliest example of a 12" 78rpm shellac from 1958 that I have found...

.65 cents seems like a lot of money to spend on a record back in 1931.

$16.85 in 2019 dollars according to an online inflation calculator.

 

Or roughly half price of a typical brand new 2019 vinyl record. Most new pressings run about $30-35.

 

And the value of that $0.65 tomorrow would turn into $35,000+ in current money if the right particular record was purchased.

Was that a single, though? Even $17 seems like a lot of money for a single.

Yes, usually. There were some 78s that were only single sided, most were a single song on each side, and some that were comprised of two tracks per side. Even the rarer complete albums back then were made of multiple singles. And they were an actual album of them, just like you would store family photographs. (See the Glenn Miller post in the mid-40s for an example.)

 

I am not saying that 78s were ever an economically sound way to spend your money, or even giving justification to the 1930s price point of them. I am just reitterating my statement from the other day: they are a subset of a hobby I won't be getting into any time soon. And I had a collection of several hundred (500+) 45s a while back.

 

There are some 78s that can be still had for less than $50 today, by the way. The problem is that they typically don't interest me with the music on them, and are usually glued together and bad condition. The prices I am mentioning are on the extreme side for ultra rare records and/or are in pristine condition.
