I found this 78 here in Arcata in this old guy’s antique shop. I wish I could have included the track titles and artist name, but I can’t read the Japanese characters that adorn the label. It’s a pretty weird record, and probably my favorite from the ones I found.
I also got one by “Eddie Harkness and His Orchestra” titled “Haunting Waltz”, which was pressed by Victor in 1927. Oh man… what a name.
It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted. It seems like I haven’t found much new music recently. I did, however, get a chance to see Mountain Man play in Austin earlier this spring, which was a great show. Also been enjoying their CD. They seem like they would be nice to be friends with.
I decided to post this mystery 78 as a sort of prologue to the compilation which I will be putting up in the next week or so. It’s been a work in progress for weeks now, not because of some sort of decisions involved in the playlist-making process, but because I have been entirely too lost in the music of Charlie Patton to think straight.
Well anyways, I hope you all are doing well!
