"Shawn, I'm not convinced.  The re-pitched records sound like they are under water.  Can you hear how low, how out of timbre the band is on both tracks?  All the instruments sound just wrong to my ear.  Big fat cornets.…"

"Nicely recorded to digital media Brad. There has been some discussion about pitching these and your care taken in setting turntable speed notwithstanding, the score pitch is usually an excellent reference to work toward. I have taken the liberty of…"

"Ah dear customer, So you don't like Pidoux's playing...  Try Thomas Malin, who has a recording on the other side from Pidoux, he is an amazing player. That will be $2.00  Thank you...goodbye Q.E.D."

"Purely speculation: convoluted market-think. Recording companies of the period often touted the vast quantity of "performers" in their paddock. I doubt it made any difference to the actual buyer but competition at the…"

"I can't comment accurately on the fingering and tuning of Darkey's Delight, it goes by too fast. But I can confirm that Pidoux is playing in F fingering on Plantation Episode and that he is tuned gCGBD, whatever the absolute pitch of his…"

"Thank you Marc, I have added your TABS and dots to the MUSIC LIBRARY. One thing that I heard when playing a midi from the Tab was that some chords sounded wrong... I assumed that a gremlin had snook into Marc's brain and that he had misstypped…"

"Oh heck. Done. I'll send it all in to Ian; dots and TAB. Don't have a 2nd or piano part. Neat piece in 6/8 time. Not esp. difficult, nothing above the 10th fret Cmaj chord. Of course, it gets really tough if you want to play it up to…"

"I do like Pidoux... "The Darkies Delight" is a hoot. I think I have a recording of Pidoux playing it. I need to go look for the dots...  "

"Yes Brad, Your links in the blog post failed here, so I assumed that you had included a faulty weblink to the files in your post. ... but if you have the MP3 recordings and want to send them to me, that would be ideal and I will add a player for…"

"I do not understand "URL."  Can I submit the two tracks to you directly, and you put them in my posts?   "

"Hi Brad, It appears that your links to the recordings are faulty and have been removed. You can email me correct details for the link to the recordings and I will re-add them for you. Ian"

Pathé 22055 Discovered in the Wild

Just in from the "wild" and right up your alley:  Found a rare American Pathé of John Pidoux / Thomas Malin that might be of interest:   Pathé 22055   ca. January 1919  John Pidoux:   "A Plantation Episode"  (Grimshaw)  mx. A79785Thomas Malin:  "The Darkey's' Delight" (Pidoux)  mx. 0.12-BI do not know if you've already covered this, but this transfer is in crisp sound, and at the correct speed, which on my turntable is about 85 rpm!  Pathés are notoriously hard to play at any speed. Unless you…See More

Brad Kay replied to thereallyniceman's discussion Not heard Ernest Jones play? Now is your chance!
"I come to this discussion entirely from left field.  I play jazz on piano and cornet, and am an avid collector of mostly Pre-War 78s.  On a visit to a little record shop in New Orleans three weeks ago, I stumbled upon two English Columbias…"
