Mark Stryker Posted January 24 Report Share Posted January 24 (edited) Gang -- I'm researching a column about Israel Crosby. He made only four sides as a leader, all four for Apollo in 1947. None appear to have ever been reissued. Here's the Tom Lord listing: Israel Crosby Quartette : unknown (ts), (p), Israel Crosby (b) Jack Cooley (d,vcl) unknown location, 1947 R1240 I feel the blues (jc vcl) Apollo 405 R1241 The death of Piney Brown (jc vcl) 390 R1243 I know the blues (jc vcl) - R1244 I deal in cats 405 I've managed to find "The Death of Piney Brown" and "I Know the Blues" online, but the other two songs, issued as Apollo 490 remain elusive: "I Deal in Cats" and "I Feel the Blues." I am DYING to hear these, especially "I Deal in Cats" because it's an instrumental, raising the possibility that it might contain a bass solo. So: Does anyone have these two sides in digital form? Does anyone have them on 78 who could possibly digitize them for me? Has anyone ever heard them and can you describe them or tell me if there's a bass solo? Many thanks.
