10 Inch 78 rpm Record - Gennett 4281

Side A - Wyoming - Green Bros. Novelty Band, (rough start with a little groove damage, ending has a few pops, but otherwise plays well, interesting arrangement). Side B - April Showers Bring May Flowers - Harry Raderman’s Jazz Orchestra

Good condition. Some scuffs. Plays well. Early American dance band, an unusual Gennett issue pressed in Ontario instead of the U.S., interesting to hear early dance band music I am guessing from around 1919 or 1920 based on Rust. Asking $7.00.

10 Inch 78 rpm Record - Parlophone A 2801

Side A - E Pari-Ra, Side B - Pokarekare

Sung by Ana Hato & Deane Waretini accompanied by Violin, 'Cello, and Piano. A New Zealand "Maori Song" recorded in Australia, probably in the late 1920s or early 1930s.

Good to Very Good condition, but Side One has a small pit (possibly caused by a corrosive of some sort) on the starting grooves. The beginning might be playable with modern playback equipment, but the rest of the record plays fine. Side two has no serious defects. "Pokarekare Ana" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C5%8Dkarekare_Ana is recognized by some as a "Maori Folk Song", but is in fact a westernized version of Maori music and does not sound at all like traditional Maori music. It is credited on this record to "Alfred Hill" who was a New Zealand/Australian composer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Hill_(composer) but I suspect he just made the arrangement, as apparently the author and composer is not known. Asking $5.00.

Three Victor Records from the Swing Era

1) Victor 20883a – Paul Whiteman AHO, "It Won’t Be Long Now"; Victor 20883b – Paul Whiteman AHO, "Five Step". Good condition. Some scuffs. Plays well. Brian Rust believes Red Nichols might be playing on this record. Recorded in 1927.

2) Victor 21214a – Paul Whiteman AHO, "Ramona – Waltz", says "With Vocal Refrain". It sounds to me like Bing Crosby, but no guarantees; Victor 21214b – Paul Whiteman AHO, "Lonely Melody". Good condition. Some scuffs. Plays well. Rust believes Trumbauer is playing on it, and that Bix is playing cornet (it sounds like him doing a solo). Recorded in 1928.

3) Victor 20-1552-A - Glenn Miller AHO, "Tuxedo Junction"; Victor 20-1552-B – Glenn Miller, "A String of Pearls". Label says "Side 7" and "Side 8", so most likely part of a much larger set, probably issued after 1942. Very Good condition. Some scuffs. Plays well. Miller plays very well indeed. Asking $25.00 for the three records.
