    Benny Goodman and His Orchestra ‎– Sing, Sing, Sing

    Genre: Jazz


    Style: Big Band, Swing


    A: Sing, Sing, Sing Part 1


    B: Sing, Sing, Sing Part 2


    Record Company – Radio Corporation of America


    This was recorded July 6, 1937 in Hollywood, mixes 09671-2 and 09672-2 and issued as 36205. Arranger is Jimmy Munday.


    My copy of "Sing, Sing, Sing" (introducing "Christopher Columbus" [Louis Prima]) is 12" RCA Victor 36205A-B. The top of the label says "Swing Classic," perhaps suggesting that it was part of a set; I don't have the rest of the set, if indeed it came with. The entire personnel of the Goodman band at that time is listed on the labels (both sides!). Included are such luminaries as Hymie Schertzer and Adrian Rollini, saxes; Harry James and Ziggy Elman, trumpets; Harry Goodman (BG's brother), string bass; Jess Stacy, piano; Gene Krupa, drums. Total 14 (5 reeds, incl. BG; 3 trpts., 2 trombones, 4 rhythm (piano, bass, drums, guitar). Mmm, not a bad bunch

    THE STORY OF SLEEPING BEAUTY Part 1 / Part 2 CRICKET RECORDS C132 1953


    Norman Rose (1917 – 2004) was an actor, film narrator and radio announcer whose velvety baritone was often called "the Voice of God" by colleagues. He was best known as the voice of fictitious coffee grower Juan Valdez in the Colombian coffee television commercials.


    Pickwick Records (originally formed as Pickwick Sales Corporation, later Pickwick International) was founded in 1950 by Cy Leslie, whose first business was a prerecorded greeting card service that in 1946 turned into Voco Records, a label of children's records. In 1957, after successfully marketing their Cricket children's label of 78 and 45rpm records,


    Cy Leslie reorganized Pickwick Sales Corp. in 1952 out of Voco, which had begun in 1946 producing recorded greeting cards, elaborately designed kiddie picture discs with cardboard backings and finally multicolored vinyl records. Cricket was the successor to Voco, making its debut with Pickwick itself on May 25, 1953; "my wife's birthday" as Leslie later recalled. Cricket was the first product line offered by Pickwick Sales Corp. According to Leslie, "Good fortune introduced me to an early genius, Eli Oberstein. He owned a vast catalog which included many children's albums, which he agreed to lease, thus beginning Pickwick's first licensing – The Pickwick Cricket line of children's records.

    Artist Biography by Joseph Stevenson


    The Italian Radio Symphony Orchestra (Orchestre Nazionale Sinfonica della RAI) descends from the original Italian radio symphony orchestra founded in Turin, and has become one of the world's leading broadcasting symphony orchestras.


    Radio is an Italian invention. Guglielmo Marconi first demonstrated the ability to detect signals transmitted through the air just before the beginning of the twentieth century and very soon devised means to send telegraphic signals across the oceans. Lee DeForest's invention of the vacuum tube amplifier made it possible to transmit sounds by radio. From about 1920, experimental sound radio commenced in the major countries of the world.
