  1. Three Jazz Boxes

    Sent PM a few days ago and again now.
  2. Savoy label question

    Chuck is right about gospel and Savoy. Some of the biggest sellers in the R&B genre for Savoy were as follows, with rankings within each year from the "Hot Chart" compiled by Big Al Pavlow in his "The R & B Book. A Disc-History of Rhythm & Blues." Based on this information, their biggest sellers in the pop field were likely Johnny Otis, Paul Williams, Varetta Dillard, and Nappy Brown. 1948: Hal Singer. Cornbread. #9 (#45 on 1943-1949 Top Records) Paul Williams. Thirty-Five Thirty. #33 Paul Williams. Waxey Maxie. #65 Brownie McGhee. My Fault. #79 Don Byas. September Song. #85 Don Byas.

  3. 2019-2020 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    Alex Cora also faces possible discipline actions based on accusations against the Red Sox that occurred after Cora left the Astros. It's not clear if Cora faces any action yet due to activities when he was with the Astros. Presumably that will be clarified in time. It makes me wonder who will be managing the Red Sox this year.

  7. That’s the same reference that I had found while looking for information on Jackson.
  8. Have you considered Gramophone? There's an archive, but it requires a subscription. Perhaps someone here has access.
