BUDDY BOLDEN'S BLUES by Jelly Roll Morton, recorded in 1939 for the General record label and here released on their 5 record 78 rpm album set - NEW ORLEANS MEMORIES. This album has been reproduced on lots of labels in just about every musical format, but this is recorded from the original General album G11. A truly historical recording!
Such was the significance of this album that it was given a contemporary account in the March 11, 1940 issue of TIME magazine. Here is an excerpt from that article:
"Last week in Manhattan Charles Edward Smith, historian (Jazzmen) and friend of America's native rhythms, produced through new General Records Co. an album of barrel-house tunes played by the greatest surviving barrel-houser — 54-year-old Ferdinand ("Jelly Roll") Morton. The album's title is Jelly Roll Morton's New Orleans Memories"
