Sadly, no one knows for sure what he was trying to do. But it seems that this great clown was ready to make an exit. There are so many in vaudeville that only a few I can talk about. But just think Ill Walk With God - Mario Lanza - Be My Love (Vinyl the dog acts, seal acts, penguin acts, donkey acts, horse acts, spinning dishes acts, operatic acts, monologist acts, patter song acts, dramatic acts, bad acts, local acts that would always remain so, and of course the stars now and then.
But think of the stars who would travel the country. Entertainers like Eddie Cantor would was not a great dancer or singer. But he would do it all so fast and in such a wild style you could never tell.
He would have a career for 50 years and do it all from vaudeville to TV, radio and movies. He found his home in comedy and would stay there for all those years.
Sophie Tucker who to the older among us will recall the name. She was known as the "Last of the red hot momas" She had a voice that would carry into another state when she sang. She spent a lifetime singing a song called "Some of these days" and would play the role that she was least likely to play. A sexy powerful woman who would in later years influence Bette Midler.
Midler would use many of the jokes of Tucker to a new audience and they took on a new life of their own. In Tuckers early days she was looked on as shocking and vulgar in some circles. But no one sang like she did. In the early days of her recording career for Edison starting aroundshe was referred to as a "coon shouter" She was still making recordings fifty years later. Blanch Ring was a popular performer in early vaudeville and in theater.
Her song "I've got rings on my fingers and bells on my toes" was a hit in many musical reviews and in vaudeville. Today that song is lost in the memory of but a few. William Claude Dunkerfield was a wonderful and well trained juggler. He shortened his name to W. Fields and worked all over the country. He had that sense right to the end. When he was dying inhe was found looking at a bible. When asked why he replied Nora Bayes and her partner Jack Norworth made many an appearance in vaudeville houses around the country.
In later years she would even have as a partner, Jack Benny. In later years she lost pretty much career and health and today rests in an unmarked grave in NY. One more person to mention in this first installment of vaudeville was the counter tenor, Will Oakland. He was very famous and made many recordings. He was not very famous in his later days. He used to hang out in Livingston, New Jersey at a bar called English's. In fact he was on his way to Livingston, when he died on a bus en route.
Perhaps the poem, " the face on the bar room floor" would fit for Oakland in his later years. End of part 1. I was sitting in my Library, in my Lincoln rocker that I just wrote about the other day. I was going through some books. Behind the chair is some Dickens and Twain. I have not read all of the books in the sets. I will, I hope before I assume room temp.
But I was sitting in the chair and pulled out one of the books and was running my hands through it and a bill flew out of the book. A 2 dollar bill! On closer inspection I saw it was a Philippians 2 Pesos bill.
These were the currency made in the United States and brought in when MacArthur came back in I was so shocked I checked every other book in the set One can dream huh?
But what an odd find. So I figured I would share with you what a Victory Bill looks like. Obviously put in that book many years ago by perhaps someone who was fighting there in Do they really have to have singing talent?
Let's give a lot of credit to the acoustic recording artists. I watched a concert on Youtube recently in which the singer really did not have much of a voice. However, she was able to use an autotune system and sing perfectly on key and give a splendid performance.
Of course she was helped by pre recorded tracks she had done before and a vast amount of mixing. So if she danced she really did not have to sing at all, as it was already pre recorded. It was a remarkable display of technology, but not talent. I for one am really starting to get tired of this mantra of hearing about great singers today. If you can walk into a room without a mic, sing a song, sing on key, sing with a piano, guitar or ah capella and not need assistance to do so. Then and only then Then in my mind you are really not much of a singer.
You are doctored and altered singer. Not having the ability to actually do it with out help. Sadly this is pretty much what we have today. A vast army of performers who could never perform without assistance. It is in many ways like an athlete who takes performance enhancing drugs to improve. A fake, phony and a fraud. For all of these people I would like to have you look at the vast array of great performers who made recordings in the early days Ill Walk With God - Mario Lanza - Be My Love (Vinyl the industry.
In the early days of performance, you needed to be able to sing with your own talent. You needed to be able to sing on key. Sing from start to finish and not make major mistakes. I was once asked to compare the voices through the recordings of Mario Lanza, Enrico Caruso, Luciano Pavarotti, and a few others and say who made better recordings.
I said I could not, cause Lanza, and well as Pavarotti had the use of technology to help them. Pavarotti's recordings are also mixed with the best takes. Caruso was recorded from start to finish on one take. More often than not, better than those who used massive takes to sound more perfect.
Look at all the old acoustic recording artists. They knew what they were doing and did not need a recording engineer to make them sound like they did. Who did not need to be assisted to be able to singentertain, and to please. I certainly hope that autotune crap goes away and some real singers can come come back to the world of entertainment. Cause they are around, just over shadowed by those who use performance enhancing devices.
I kind of prefer the real thing Bought on February 14, Early disc recordings from the period of recorded sound. What were the playing speeds? By it had finally happened.
There was a consistent speed to records But before this time and from the very start of the disc recording industry, there was a really great sense of confusion. Much of this dealt with the question The standard answer was 78 RPM. I have seen in my many years of collecting records discs that we call 78's running at speeds from 64 RPM to about Starting with Berliners it is thought that 70 RPM is a good average for them.
But, there you will find many that are not too close to that speed. Give or take a bit. Also you will find on many of the early Climax and silver labeled Columbia discs of a bit of a problem in keeping a steady speed to the recording. I have found this in a number of early Climax and Columbia recordings. By it seems to have been rectified. The problem with many of the recordings for the first Columbia records was this.
They were trying to build up a massive catalog of recordings in the year of They had discontinued the Climax label and many of the Climax's had an announcement saying it was a Climax record. All of the Climax records without an announcement were just changed over to the Columbia label.
However, there was a massive recording program to as quickly as possible, replace all the Climax records. Therefore, I am thinking that there may have been a bit of "recording engineer" burn out and exhaustion.
Perhaps several recordings made were sub par, but used for a short while till it could be replaced again.
I find that many of the Columbia records from - are in the ball park of RPM's. Not all of course, but a vast majority. Post Victor Talking Machine records run from about 71 to This is where it was a problem for Victor. Many recording engineers had a set speed for some singers. Others did not. There seems to not be any agreement. Case in point with Enrico Caruso's Victor records the speeds vary going as low as 74 RPM and some reaching as high as There are other singers in which the speeds are quite varied as well.
Some of the early recordings were marked as to the key in which they were recorded. But this practice stopped shortly after it started. The early days of the Gramophone and Typewriter company in Europe made some wide speed changes in recordings. The speeds vary from 64 to perhaps So as you can see there is a massive gap. In LP) cases much, much slower.
Seems RPM, but were also pitched down! RCA reissued some of his recordings on LP and recorded them being played at 78! It made him sound ridiculous. The famous soprano Patti also falls under this situation. Her recordings made in and 06 are slower, around 72 RPM, and in her case as well the music was pitched down. But what this shows a total lack of consistency in the industry. There was no set rule, just a general idea. If one wishes to try to find the right speeds you have to remember several things.
Many recordings were made with a pitch change. Older singers pulled from retirement often opted for changes in the pitch of the music in which they would record. If that is not known, many people will try to play the recording to pitch and find that their singer sounds very much like the hinges of Hell. So often research and thought have to go into this. Also a sonic memory of what the voice sounds like when Ill Walk With God - Mario Lanza - Be My Love (Vinyl at a proper speed.
If you do not have that it will make it harder. But let's try to give a few basics of speed. Most people will probably have recordings made later than this in their old 78 collection. So I will just give an idea of the speed in which they should be played at.
Remember, there will always be exceptions. I am not listing all labels of that time, just some. I am just listing a bit of information, not the whole story. Almost all of these and many other quick lived labels whose records were made from other companies stampers.
Therefore RPM would be the rule. The only exception was Leeds and Imperial. They did make some of there own recordings. However in the case of the early Leeds records, some were illegal dubbings.
After electrical recording becomes the norm and calibrated turntables are used for recording. The standard speed for the records by is But the first quarter century left many only to only guess. In some cases we still are. Why is it stuck with religion and other crazy ideas that have nothing to do with the founding of this government.
I often enjoy watching the political side show called the Presidential election. It has been an interesting thing to watch and the election was no exception. But what I found, specially on the Republican side was nothing short of scary. Since Jefferson penned that letter as President to a religious Baptist sect, a sect that wanted government protection from another religious sect.
In his answer he stated quite clearly that there was a wall of separation between religion and government. I am sure he wrote that letter after talking it over with his Secretary of State, James Madison.
Madison who is known as the Father of the Constitution. Madison was Jefferson's intellectual support. He was a man of amazing intellectual properties. The Ebro Show. Color Me Country. My 3 Minutes Radio with Carly Pearce.
