Jump & Jive on 78 Volume 1

We present a compilation "LP" of El Enmascarado's rips from shellac for your downloadable listening and dancing pleasure. Programmed by your blogmeister for maximum moving and grooving, this virtual disc is guaranteed to provide hours of toetapping fun for the discerning fan of 1940s jump blues.

Check out Jumpin' on 78  and More Jumpin' and Jivin' on 78 for links to the original posts of these discs where you can find out all the background info on who played what and when. The sharp eyed among you will have noticed that Joe Liggins' "A Lovers Lament" / "Miss Betty's Blues" is not included here. We're saving it for a planned second volume.

The download includes all label scans plus an rtf document with the notes from the original posts. These sides are ripped from original 78 rpm discs so surface noise is unavoidable.

Hi Anonymous

I've just downloaded the file from Rapidshare, opened it using WinRAR, and played the music on Windows Media Player. Everything is ok.

Did you use the password: greaseyspoon to open the file after you downloaded it?

Winzip won't open the file - you can use free programs such as IZArc or 7-Zip to open it.

trying to download this collection, I get the same responses: password needed for one; file deleted for the other.

I've just renewed my rapidshare pro account - you should hopefully be able to use the rapidshare link now.

I've tried uploading to zippyshare but the file disappeared into limbo.
