Shellac 78's - Oct 2023

Pic of Jersey Bounce by Earl Hines

During the last week of this October, I actually had some free time to clean up and digitize some of the 78's in my collection. I still have a milk crate worth of Shellac to work on, but I'm also hoping to get out to the record stores sometime in November.  I miss those dusty, discount bins.

Here are two of my favorites that I cleaned up this month:

"Jersey Bounce" by Earl Hines from 1941

"Fralich In Swing" by Ziggy Elman from 1939.  This later became a hit for Benny Goodman when Johnny Mercer added lyrics and the name was changes to "And The Angels Sing"
