George Handy - Sarco 104


Recommended Posts

The Advance Record Releases column in the September 21, 1946, edition of The Billboard listed a forthcoming release on Sarco Records: Vivien Garry-George Handy, "Rip Van Winkle" and "Stick Around" - Sarco 104. Sarco released three 78 singles earlier with Garry/Handy that Don Schlitten reissued in the 1970s on Onyx 212. I asked Schlitten if he was aware of the this fourth release, and he had never seen or heard of it.

I wondered if any esoteric 78 collectors on the list have seen this release? I write about the label in my latest post:

I've spun the "Rip Van Winkle" recording by Boyd Raeburn relatively often recently (the "Jewells" CD by Raeburn is currently in the stack of CDs to feed my car player) but I've never heard of (let alone heard) a Vivian Gary recording of that tune either, of course.
But THANKS and hats off for your post on the Sarco label. No stone unturned and certainly the definite word on the subject, as usual ... 👍
