Sorry for the Scans, Discs wernt mine and I only Took em "quick" so i could Rename em later. pity I deleted most of those pics after I used them!! Ahhhhh
One of my favirote Bands would be Mr Millers Organisation, wether the civilian band or the AFF one, Ive enjoyed it all (apart from one or two Novelty numbers!)
So here's a Blast from the past. It some of the Early Pre 39-42 band. Yep those elusive columbia 78's.
By the look of these Pressings Columbia were still trying to "flog" their recordings while the "real" band were on RCA Victor Bluebird (Or HMV here and in the UK), Shades of the Beatles recordings with Tony Sheridan being re-relesed thought the early 60's to try to cash in on the EMI Fame.
Still 2 "solid" numbers, and this time No Reverb. Yes the Offical Columbia CD of this set has the faint traces of Reverb and Bugger all Top end. (lets kill the treble and the noise policy). Im not Profeccing these are the best copies in the world. no just a junky copy I found, but with more "soul" than heard in the last 60 years.
Sold American was the B Side. I havent restored it as of yet.. anyone want me to?

Remember this blog is for you to hear 78's restored as "natural" as they can be.
You may hear "noise" on the good versions, but again you might hear "music" you havent as well!
I dont Profess to be an expert on the men and the music, so don't expect any kind of "copy and pase" wikpedia stuff hear, but that said if you have any memories of the Artists or songs PLEASE leave a comment. I want to learn as much as I can about this music. !!
But Seriously I like the theture organ style of Reggie Dixon and would love to work on some more!
Anyone with any info about the recording, Organ? I don't have a scan of the label or even own the disc!, so I can't remember what Label recorded this one.

Eddie Haywood trio -Everybody Loves Somebody (Taylor) HMV D7-VB-2610
I know very little about the man who made these fine recordings, so here a bit from ALLMUSIC's web page
|Biography||by Scott Yanow|
The Eddie Heywood Sextet was very popular in the mid-'40s, playing melodic and tightly arranged versions of swing standards. Heywood's father, Eddie Heywood, Sr., was a strong jazz pianist of the 1920s who often accompanied Butterbeans and Susie. He taught piano to his son, who played professionally when he was 14. Heywood Jr. performed with bands led by Wayman Carver (1932), Clarence Love (1934-1937), and, after moving to New York, Benny Carter (1939-1940). Heywood led his own group from that period on, backing Billie Holiday on a few occasions starting in 1941. In 1943, Eddie Heywood took several classic solos on a Coleman Hawkins quartet date (most notably "The Man I Love") and put together his first sextet, which also included Doc Cheatham and Vic Dickenson. Their 1944 version of "Begin the Beguine" became a hit, and three years of strong success followed. During 1947-1950, Heywood was stricken with a partial paralysis of his hands and could not play at all. He made a gradual comeback in the 1950s, mostly performing watered-down commercial music in addition to composing the standard "Canadian Sunset." Despite a second attack of paralysis in the late '60s, Eddie Heywood continued performing into the 1980s.
