Shellac Stack No. 48 endeavors to put a spring in your step with some hot titles by the Castle Jazz Band, pop treatments of music from Bizet’s Carmen, some unaccompanied male quartets, a sprightly musical saw duet (YES! A saw duet!), a tribute to Barney Fife’s “other” girlfriend, and more. From Lee Morse to the Archibald Brothers to Nat Shilkret, it’s another hour of musical surprises!
In the program, I reference the following 1926 advertisement from Mussehl & Westphal, makers of musical saws. We also listen to both sides of the free record offered in the ad. Click to enlarge:
