Giving Edison his due!

What a delightful recording of "hot dance" numbers from the latter days of Edison's Diamond Discs! It is often believed that Edison's vertical cut records were technically superior to the conventional lateral cut records of his competitors (this is the technology that got locked in and that we still use). On the evidence of these excellent transfers, the sound is superb, both in the earlier acoustical recordings, and in the later electrical recordings. Kudos to Bryan and Rivermont for another fantastic production!

PEP FROM THE ROARING TWENTIES

This compilation is sub-titled “Hot Dance Music on Edison Diamond Discs 1923-1928” and totals only 21 titles, but almost 80 minutes of playing time because Edison discs offered a longer playing time than normal. That allowed the musicians more time to develop the theme, and more room to interpolate solos, of which some took full opportunity. Several of the bands represented here were new to me, but on the evidence of these recordings they all deserve to be better known. The selection by the California Ramblers, and Phil Napoleon, include alternative versions of numbers they recorded for other labels. These are for the most part “peppy” tunes, played in the spirit of abandon that prevailed during the roaring twenties. The exceptions are the two Donald Lindley numbers which, despite their titles, are played straight. Edison did not switch to electrical recordings until the summer of 1927, and even then the results were often technically inferior to their acoustic predecessors, but Nick Dellow has worked wonders with the sound restoration. Extensive liner notes, penned by VJM’s Mark Berresford, provide an informative background to Edison’s recording processes, and to the individual tracks in this compilation. In other words, it’s another triumph from Rivermont.

Great transfers of Edison recordings.

This is a wonderful recording of Edison recordings all properly transferred and restored. I have searched for a good transfer of Phil Napoleon’s “Five Pennies” for years. The ones I found earlier were all very tinny and thin sounding. Surely an Edison electric recording should sound better than they did. This CD proves that they could. Highly recommended!

Another Rivermont success

Rivermont continues to release quality CDs focusing on old recordings. Dancing the Devil Away features Edison disks from the pre-electric era yet sound quality and fidelity are excellent. As I learned from the extensive booklet, Edison apparently was not into hot jazz and technological complications made his disks rare. Regardless, this CD contains several hot sides. Put all these factors together – quality recording, extensive booklet, rare disks – and the result is another fine CD from Rivermont.

Dancing the Devil Away

What a great recording! A nice selection of familiar tunes and some I'd never heard, all played with the lively rhythms and combinations of instruments that make 1920's dance music so distinctive. Add to this Mark Berresford's extensive and informative liner notes and you have a CD that's a great addition to any collection.
