We proudly present the second round up of  El Enmascarado’s rips from original R&B 78 rpm discs. The mood is more relaxed and cooler than on the somewhat more heated Volume One of the series, with the exception of the opening blaster, “Headhunter” by Johnny Otis. There’s plenty swingin’ and jivin’ for you cool cats which you can download from here:

A folder of label scans is included in the download.

Ripped from shellac at 128 kbps.

All the info on all the tracks is available on the original posts on Be Bop Wino. Here are the links to unfathomable depths of arcane knowledge:

With many, many thanks to El Enmascarado for his work in rescuing these original ten inchers, many of which are in very poor condition. Volume Three is already shaping up, with a few of its tracks already posted and more in the pipeline. Stay cool, you swing, jump and jive fans!

Mediafire link is in fact, a repeated rapidshare link.

I'm still hoping that someone out there will be able to identify the Mystery Artist on the Big Fat Mama acetate. I'm sorry about the sound quality on that one. Most acetates/test pressings I've heard are like that- they didn't stand up well to repeated playing. I did my best with it. There's more to come from that radio station batch.... The Masked One

I tried to download this from rapidshare and when I tried to open it required a password. The other link, mediafire says that the file has been deleted.

Appreciate any help. Thanks

The rapidshare link should now work, I hope. If you get the download, the password is greaseyspoon.

I've given up on mediafire.

I'm still trying to upload to zippyshare, but uploads have simply disappeared this evening.
