Archeophone's 'Blacks and the Birth of the Recording Industry'
A friend has written suggesting that I take a look at the details of a double CD soon to be released by Archeophone Records, titled 'Lost Sounds: Blacks and the Birth of the Recording Industry, 1891-1922.' These discs include such rare treasures as recordings by Cousins & DeMoss (1898), George W. Johnson (various, 1890s), and Bert Williams and George W. Walker with their delightful if somewhat eccentric rendering of 'My Little Zulu Babe' (New York, November 1901), which they included in their show, Sons of Ham. In fact, the whole of Archeophone's catalogue is worth a look. - JC
