  1. Dire sound quality of C. Baker Prestige reissues

    I recall the original LPs as sounding fine, though I always thought that Baker's playing was a bit sub-par on them; not horribly so, but just not quite settled.
  2. there's a fair amount of that Pentecostal sound on CD; mosty old Document CDs. Incredible stuff.
  3. just for the record, I have no objection to the way this thread has developed.
  4. Keepnews was difficult. I once commented on some bulletin board that I didn't like Mabel Mercer and he went berserk. Berserk.
  5. I guess I thought the hint that I was being ironic was that I said Appropriating Culture, as a opposed to cultural appropriation; it's supposed to sound like a "How To...." I agree, actually, that the title shouldn't be so abstract as to require cover-to-cover perusal (and the reader shouldn't have to know all of my work). But once I again, I do think the word-switch points clearly enough in the right direction.
  6. yes - no problem. Well, I had no idea that this had blown up like it has. I am a bit under the weather these days, so don't have a lot of energy to respond; however, I will say: 1) I am amused at being called an academic. I have been excluded from my attempts to get access to that world for many, many years. I have gotten in some major trouble as well for my detailed criticisms of academics and academia in the past. I think academia has been the near-ruination of the study of American music. I am completely unaffiliated and have always worked without any institutional support. 2) The sound is rough on this collection, especially, of course, the early years. I did my best, as all materials are from my own collection. 3) The phrase 'turn me loose white man' comes from an early minstrel song as sung by two white men; the title of the book has to do with the ambiguity and outright strangeness of a white man, imitating a black man within a form that was certainly a matter of cultural theft and subterfuge - though hidden in plain sight - seeming to ask for freedom of expression. 4) I use the phrase 'cultural appropriation' with intended irony. I think the whole idea has become just another socio-speak cliche.
  7. Concord Records / CDR's ???

    Real CDs by themselves cost about 50 cents per to manufacture - plus we do have to figure in complete package costs. But also real CDs are much more durable.
  8. Concord Records / CDR's ???

    whenever I receive a CDR I return it for a refund; it's "not as described," and I have never been denied. I will NOT pay CD prices for something which costs them about 10-25 cents to manufacture. Amazon is great on these; otherwise I only use paypal, which is also great on these kind of returns. It is just a huge ripoff.

  10. No value?

    this is all very interesting; about 70 percent of my collection is not downloadable in terms of either the actual recording or the sources, which are everything. Otherwise it is like having bad prints of paintings and thinking that that is sufficient. Which many people do believe.
  11. ok. So I take it you don't want to pre-order?
  12. sorry if it offends your sensibilities, but I ran it by a famous African American writer who loved it, calling it "audacious as hell." And, I have had $10,000 in pre-orders. So I will take my own sense of it above yours. And the quote itself, if I need to explain, is from an early minstrel song, and placed with both intended and unintended irony. Kind of a rhetorical double consciousness (feel free to look that up).

    I realize that the trend is elsewhere, but if you want to do research in music it can best be done with physical media surrounding you; books, CDs, LPs, and means of ACCURATE playback. I have accumulated the best American music CD collection on earth, likely, for the span 1900-1970. I have written 6 books based on this collection and reissued something like 100 CDs. If this makes me a relic, so be it. Trying to do it differently results in gaps, mistakes, lack of personnel and credit, etc. You also need to know the sound quality of reissues, what's good, what's better, and what's not. This in itself is more than essential. When I die, if it's worth anything, my family can sell or donate. I know of one major library that has been begging me for this stuff, but for complex reasons, it's not gonna happen soon.
  14. This is going to be a NEW 31 CD survey of American song, 1900-1960 - with a book - called: TURN ME LOOSE WHITE MAN: OR: APPROPRIATING CULTURE: HOW TO LISTEN TO AMERICAN MUSIC 1900-1960 (it will be done by late spring 2020; I have been a little delayed by cancer treatments, but have written 20,000 words so far; song mastering is completed) The pre-order price includes the book and shipping, at $125 ($140 to Europe). This will hold until November 1. After that, and at publication, this will go up to $160 plus shipping - ($185 to Europe) my paypal is allenlowe5@gmail.com
