1950 R & B - Tape 2

Just scanned in tape # 2 (of 6) in the 1950 R & B series:

http://hometown.aol.com/savoybg2/myhomepage/index.html

Fred, when you find this person who ONLY needs to have the time available to do
these tapes. make sure that he/she has a 78 turntable, as some of these items
were never reissued in any form. That way, when you somehow find a copy of the
78 in playable condition, this person will be able to play it.

SOME INTERESTING LESSER KNOWN ITEMS:

Still In The Dark - Pretty good pre-Atlantic Turner item.

Turkey Hop - Robins - Good uptempo number, part 2, later in the tape was the
same song as an instrumental.

Information Blues - Roy Milton - One of his best non-ballads.

3 x 7 = 21 - Wilhelms, tell your taper to be careful here, most every LP and CD
contain a totally different, later version of this rather than the 1950
release.

Back Biting Woman - Billy Wright - Savoy Special by Little Richard's mentor.

What's Happening - Paul Williams - Another good Savoy record, the same Connie
Allen who sings on "Rocket 69" is the vocalist.

Count Every Star - Ravens - classic early vocal group record.

I am sure that someone from your beloved "coalition" will now come forward and
pat you on the back for creating your lists, now that you have begged for the
attention that I don't seem to be paying you. Be satisfied with that, Bruce.

But, really, you're right, Bruce. You are the only person with a 78 rpm
turntable in the entire world, and the only person with access to these 78s.
After all, as someone said on this very board, "only Grossberg could have seen
this mission through."

Oh, wait, that was you, wasn't it?

Never mind.

What lists?

These aren't lists Fred, they are track listings from a small portion of a
monumental project that I undertook years ago. It's not just lists of songs
Fred, it's a series of tapes of all of the songs, and virtually every one of
them sounds excellent, and I still say that you'll never be able to find
someone to complete a project like this in 2004. It's just too much work, and
will get too frustrating when this person can't locate certain records, and
he's getting a gigantic head start by not having to do any research. All he has
to do is loocats all of the songs and put them on tape, CD, computer, whatever,
in the proper order.

Nobody's doing it Fred.

Over 20 years worth of music, over 10,000 songs.

The only person who with the turntable, the access, and the dedication to see
it through, yes.

Sorry.

Feel better now?

I really am sorry no one has showered you with praise for your LISTINGS so that
you have to beg for it from me. I realize it must have been a tough week for
you. No one said anything about you here at all for nearly a week, and you
have to resort to asking me to pick up the slack. How sad.

I'd love to be of more help, Bruce, but I pretty much limit myself these days
to laughing at the stupid things you post, and I generally leave the weirdly
pathetic ones like this to wither and die on their own. This self-imposed
restriction (its a focus, Bruce) leaves me plenty of opportunities, so don't
worry, I'm not neglecting you. Someone else is just going to have to step in
here.

And no one is building a life-size statute of John Kerry out of popsicle

I didn't just create these listings Fred. I just posted them for the group to
see, as I think it does hold some interest for some people around here.

I would have done this a long time ago, but I just got a scanner recently, and
I don't have the info on a current computer, just on old 5 1/2 inch floppy
discs that I have no way of copying right now.

Thre are people from other places aside from this group who are aslo enjoying
the track listings Fred. This is not the only place that I frequent.

I'm not begging it from you Fred, I am mocking you for your preposterous
statement that "anybody could make those tapes if they had the time." That's
one of the reasons that I am posting the links here, so that the other members
can see how ludicrous your statement was as they look at the depth of the
series. The sheer amount of songs alone on these tapes would scare anybody off
from trying to duplicate them.

Unless there's some other answer, they are substantive all on their own, as an

they nmever leave my house Fred, they are already substantive.

You keep going back to money, although I've never mentioned it as a yardstick.
You seem to believe that the only measure of substance I adhere to is
financial, even though you haven't got anything to base that on. The most
recent time time you made this mistake, I pointed out that doing something
substantive would simply involve adding something to a broader understanding
and appreciation of our culture. You don't need to make a dime off it.

I understand you wanting to set your own definitions where you see fit, but
this seems to place the bar awfully low. I'm sure the John Kerry popsicle
stick sculptor also believes he has created an "incredible" documentation, too.
Remember that guy I told you about, the one who tracked the serial number of
every dollar bill that crossed his hands for decades? That was some incredible
documentation, too.

If it were up to me, I would leave "incredible" and other superlative
adjectives up to the people who actually make use of what you've done for some
purpose that increases our understanding and appreciation of the culture these
LISTINGS represent. If the work is that important to be "incredible," you
won't have to say so yourself. Someone else will say it for you. It is the
difference between being a legend, and a "legend in your own mind," if you
understand the difference.

(Admittedly, I agree "incredible" might be a good word to describe you
personally, as it means "not believable," like that Ruppli reference you made
up.}

Have we talked enough about you now?

Dozens already have, people who were around years ago when I was playing these
tapes at work, and they checked out the "listings" and the extent of the
series, and used all those superlatives.

Since these are all backed up on reel to reel, I even loaned the cassettes to
several people, one year at a time, for them to listen to and absorb the
series. Every one of those people who had that experience was amazed that
something like this could be accomplished.

Nobody's a legend here Fred, but as I continue to post the "listings" it's
going to become more and more clear to everybody here that you are an ass for
trying to discredit a project like this.

If it was anybody else but me posting this you either would not comment, or you
would say something positive. You obviously have let your personal feeling
effect your comments about this project.

Interesting that you would criticize me for the FYC call, saying that I
shouldn't let my "ego" get involved in calling the game. Based on your byas
towards me and this project, you'd make a terrible umpire Fred. You obviously
let your emotions control you. If I was a player, and you were an umpire, you
would never be able to just call the game fairly, once you decided that you
didn't like me.

Maybe people around here would respect you more if you showed that you can put
your personal feelings aside and just acknowledge that something (this
projuect) is good, rather than attempting to somehow diminish it.
Post by Intheway1

You started talking about me. All I did was scan in something and post a link
for the music fans here to see, and to show them how ludicrous your prior
statement was about "anyone" being able to do this if they had the time.

maybe they have.

Look, Bruce, it is obvious you feel the need to keep blowing your own horn. Go
to it, just don't expect me to think you're contributing anything musical when
you do it. You are just drawing attention to yourself.

I guess we'll see about that. Either you will finally be appreciated as the
historian you want so desperately to be, or you will be seen as the pathetic
little man who has to continue to draw attention to himself by
self-glorifyication of his petty little projects by giving them importance they
don't really deserve. You obviously want some validation for you monomania, or
you wouldn't react the way you do when I point out how silly that is.

I know which way my vote is going on that one. Even you can't point to any
creative or original contribution in your projects. All you can praise is your
own "dedication."

Hey, Bruce. Go back to the beginning of this thread. You called me out,
remember? It's tough to act like a victim here when you made the first move.
Either take it like a man or just shut up about yourself.

---rest of a long rambling and irrelevant post clipped---

Nice try to avoid the subject, again, but all the smoke you put up has nothing
to do with the fact that nothing substantive has come out of all your work on
this mission, a point you haven't even tried to respond to.

A while back I called your project the mental equivalent of masturbation, and
I've
seen nothing that shows me my assessment was wrong. For reasons that continue
to escape me, you want my approval, or at least my admission that your
"project" actually means something other than you spent thousands of hours
compiling LISTINGS that serve no earthly purpose other than to give you some
desperately craved feeling of accomplishment.

You have amassed a great pile of factual information, Bruce. Do something with
it. Explain why it is important. Explain what it means. Illuminate us to
some fact other than that you have collected a lot of facts.
Until you do so, I will be unimpressed with your claims of "incredibility."

Sorry.

Sure I can. Lots of people before me have made tapes of the hits of a given

year, so that the experience of hearing the records in context could be
duplicated as closely as possible.

That's the point. I f you were a "man" you would just admit that you

about "anybody" being able to do it, rather than thinking that because you were

Once again Fred. These are not listings. They are tapes that document the
history of R & B over a long period of time.

If someone could walk into a library and have access to them, as a means of
studying the evolution of the music, they would be a great tool for people
looking to study that evolution. While they will not be in a library any time
soon (hopefully), they are available to be loaned to anyone that I feel has a
genuine interest in that evolution, and is not just looking for a way to obtain
a lot of great music for free, by copying the tapes for himself while they are
in his posession.

No explanation is needed on this for anybody who loves the music. It's apparent

could actually listen to the tapes while using the lists as a listening guide
on their journey through the history of R & B.

Actually, you're wrong. A couple of radio DJ's have used them as a tool for

They have also been used as a tool to help sell records, both in Relic when I

the series.

Plenty, but I'll let you figure it out for yourself when your guy find the time

God, what an insufferable egomaniac. The first to ever use chronology to
present the history of R&B. Yeah, right! There are any number of R&B box
sets which do just that. This one, for example:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0000033EL/qid=1100382053/sr=2-1/ref=pd_ka_b_2_1/103-5084709-7955047

Here's another, though for a single label:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000002IRS/qid=1100382797/sr=2-1/ref=pd_ka_b_2_1/103-5084709-7955047

Of all your astounding claims, this one is probably the most ridiculous.

By the way, if you put ALL your "accomplishments", including your lists,
your CHRONOLOGICAL tapes and your induction into a beer league hall of fame
on a scale like the scale of justice, they wouldn't even budge the scale
compared to Fred's smallest success in collecting royalties for one singer.
Even if you yourself joined your "accomplishments" on one side of the scale
with Fred's smallest royalty victory on the other, your side would still be
outweighed by Fred's.

The first to ever use chronology to
present the history of R&B.
Im not talking a minor box set with 60 or 80 songs bug, I'm talkine the ENTIRE
history of R & B, virtually EVERY notable record for over a 20 year period,
meticulously presented in precise chronologocal order. Not just year by year
like Rhino box set, where they have no idea whether the record was around in
January or October.

Besides, these box sets came out long after these tapes wre made up, which was
20 to 25 years ago, so even if you were correct about their chronologicalizing
things, they did so WAY after I did.
compared to Fred's smallest success in collecting royalties for one singer.
Who's comparing anybody to Fred?

I would lose the battle with any lawyer who's done anything positive for any
client. The fact that Fred's specialty involves music makes his accomplishments
no greater than any lawyer who does a good job for a client.

I know one thing though, I've made a much greater mark on the game of baseball
than you have Bugge.

Dennis is throwing in some humor. Fred is the vile one in this thread.
Dennis is about as funny as a kid I knew in 6th grade whose idea of a
joke was picking his nose and flicking the boogers around the room. For
entertainment value, I'd sooner read Sharx. And for the purpose of the
group, music, Dennis contributes nothing at all. Why do you keep
defending him? Are you some kind of eunuch?

So, you invented chronology?
No, I conceived it as an idea for presenting a historical perspective on music.
If oyu know of someone who predates me with doing this for the evolution of R &
B, please let me know who it is.
Post by Intheway1
Do you really think you are the only person who
could have done that?
No, but i"m the first person who did do it.
God, what an insufferable egomaniac. The first to ever use chronology to
present the history of R&B. Yeah, right! There are any number of R&B box

Of all your astounding claims, this one is probably the most ridiculous.
By the way, if you put ALL your "accomplishments", including your lists,
your CHRONOLOGICAL tapes and your induction into a beer league hall of fame
on a scale like the scale of justice, they wouldn't even budge the scale
compared to Fred's smallest success in collecting royalties for one singer.
Even if you yourself joined your "accomplishments" on one side of the scale
with Fred's smallest royalty victory on the other, your side would still be
outweighed by Fred's.

Bill,

Welcome back.

Thanks for picking up the slack on Bruce's invention of chronology. I was busy
trying to find an email address for Stephen Hawking so I could warn him there
was a new gun in town.

I hate to bring the name up, only because the last time I did it spurred Bruce
to his only truly creative moment (unfortunately, the only thing he created
that time was a citation to a book thad doesn't exist), but Michael Ruppli was
doing complete and detailed chronologies while Bruce was still being held down
by the guys who let him hang around and forced to listen to Scott Muni.

And thanks for the kind words about my work, but this thread is all about
Bruce, and the puzzling lack of respect I show for his accomplishment, which is
"incredible" even if he has to say so himself (and he has had to say so
himself).

I don't know why he isn't satisfied with the love and adoration of those DJs,
and the guys from the record stores, and those dozens of people who have been
allowed to actually see the tapes and touch them once Bruce is convinced they
are pure of heart. For some reason, he has to convince me, even though I am
not respected here because I don't think what he has done is all that
incredible.

Go figure.

You hit the nail on the head Dennis.

Let's face it, Wilhelms is nothing but a guy with big internet muscles. He'll
belittle me, call me names, try to diminish me, whatever he can, as long as he
knows that he'll never have to look me in the face when he's doing it.

Once he thought that there was even a possibility that this 150 pound terror
from NJ might be coming to his area, he went running to the police like the
cunt that he is.

Now that he's fairly sure that I'm not a crazed stalker, maybe he would be
interested in getting together some time and discussing this in person,
perhaps, you, me, Fred, and a companion for Fred (I'm sure he'll hire an armed
bodyguard), if he is willing, and let's see if he is man enough to behave this
way towards me in person.

Another thing. He says that I'm disturbed, yet he continues to call me names,
belittle me, etc....

If I'm disturbed, that means that I'm mentally ill, and that what he's doing is
pretty damn despicable.

Bob Roman, what do you think is worse, being mean to newbies on the internet
(keep in mind that I may only be doing this because I'm mentally ill), or
berating a mentally ill person?

I can't be an asshole, and also be disturbed, because if I'm disturbed, aka
mentally ill, then my behavior is not my fault. I have a medical condition
(according to Fred) that causes me to behave this way.

So which is it Fred, am I disturbed, or am I just an asshole?

By the way, Bob and Mark, what do you guys think of these tapes that I have
been posting the info on. Do you agree with Fred that I accomplished nothing
substantial here?

Since you (and Roman) have never had any problems critcizing me in the past,
we
all know that in this case you both realize that Fred is being an obstinate
asshole here regarding these tapes, and you both agree with me that this

is a pretty incredible project.

Gee, Bruce, give a guy a chance to wake up. It may be hard for you to
imagine, but some of us have lives outside the group.

Whatever I might have said to your first post has already been made
moot by your second post. The fact that you rushed to ther attack so
stupidly speaks volumes, to use your cliche, about how much Fred has
gotten under your skin about the tapes. Why do you care what he says?
Why don't you just ignore him?

As for the eunuch crack, the only one around here who seems to be
thinking constantly about the state of everybody's balls is you.

That's Central Time. And the 10:30 post (11:30 EST) was a follow-up.

I've got that he posted the original challenge at 8:50 PM last night
and the indignant riposte to our non-response at 8:51 AM this morning.
I picture him checking his watch last night and saying, OK I'll give
them exactly 12 hours before I question the health of their gonads.

I saw "Ray" again last night. A friend hadn't seen it and asked if I
want to go. I jumped at the chance. The second time through the
first half hour or so really drags. If I ever get the DVD I'm only
going to watch it starting from when Ray arrives at Atlantic.

Maybe they just think your pitiful pleas for attention aren't worth keeping the
thread alive. Maybe they are still recovering from the laughing fits caused by
your claim to have invented chronological study of music. As tough as it will
be for you to accept, Bob and Mark are smart enough to think for themselves.

You really do believe there is a conspiracy against you, don't you? You really
believe that no one can possibly come to the conclusion on his or her own that
you are a self-inflating gasbag?

I guess everyone has to agree the posted results of your mental masturbation
are "incredible." If they don't they're eunichs.
As your achievements cannot be questioned (after all, there is all that acclaim
you say you have gotten, though no one else has ever seen), there must be some
nefarious plot to make you look stupid for no good reason, and I am the
ringleader who cannot be alienated out of fear of...well, I haven't a clue what
they would be afraid of, do you?

There can be no other explanation, right?

How utterly sad.

You think the reason that Roger, who usually finds something good to say about
you, has been silent this time is that he has looked at his copy of Leadbitter
and seen a copyright date of 1968? Sometime before you "invented" chronology?

Hell, that statement was so ludicrous that it brought Bill back from the dead
to laugh at you. For that alone, you deserve the thanks of the group, although
I doubt it is what you intended.

I said nothing of the kind. I said I was the first person to place the hitory

but week by week.

I know that, but they are not honest or brave enough to take a stand against
anything you've ever said around here, like our French friend Lud has done, and
like some others (Todd Lucas) have done. I don't think that Mark and Bob are
any smarter than those guys, just a bit more testosteronilly challenged maybe,
or perhaps it's just loyalty to you, who they are closer with than to me. Bob
certainly has always spoekn up in our debates when he agrees with you. I have
to regard his silence to mean that he doesn't in this case.

See above, I never claimed to have invented chronology. I calim to have been

in orecise chronological order.

Standing aside while two people claw at each other about nothing more
than mutual dislike is not at all like sitting on the fence. Of course,
for you belligerence and discussion are pretty much the same thing so
you probably can't understand the difference.

of a "clawing match" when Bruce asks his opinion of his laborious historical
opus!!!

All Bruce ask was his opinion of his work and Dinty, moore or less, haughtily
looks down his booger-preserved nostrils at the notion!!

Mark Densenfass has never been above any fray in here!!

Remember his ham fisted attempts to paint Scarlotti as a racist?

Markie!!

You have feigned insusiance but have manifested impuissance, sir!!

You are a tartuffle of the first degree!!!

It's time for you to grab yourself by the pleated and bunched up crotch of
your baggy papaw britches and in a high piercing proalmation that would make
Lou Christie proud, shout out:

"I'm a man"!!!

Diffidentfass!!!

Show some courage for a change, old boy!!!

Finally show this newsgroup that there IS a Mark of excellance and
differentiate yourself in some way from Dashevsky so we can all know that there
is indeed a discrete and intrepid Markie D in yo timorous ass, baby!!!

Roman and Mark Dintenfass contribute more worthwhile material to this
group in a week than your dumb ass has posted the entire time you've

So, what's the problem, Dennis? Did your mommy keep on breast-feeding
you until you were in high school? Speaking of which, I'll bet you were
one of the kids who got picked on a lot. That's what made you such a
bitter, hateful douche bag who can't stand anyone who has accomplished
more in life than you have. Right?

Believe it or not, Dennis, some people continue their education beyond
high school. The next level is known as "college." And yes, Bob and Mark
both went to college. And no, they aren't willing to dumb down their
postings to placate the petulant, callow jerk-off contingent of these

I'm sorry, what exactly is the issue at hand here? If your argument
is that you put a lot of work into the project, it sounds like that it
correct. But I thought the issue Fred was disputing was whether the
project made you "a historian." As I understood it, his position is
that to be any kind of scholar someone needs to use the tools of
analysis, interpretation, and communication. I actually agree with
that position.

It sounds like you put together a cool set of mix tapes. I understand
your pleasure in seeing a big project through to completion. But I
don't see why you want to inflate what you did accomplish here
(gathering together a bunch of recordings) as something "substantial"
to the world at large.

I really am sorry no one has showered you with praise for your LISTINGS so that
you have to beg for it from me. I realize it must have been a tough week for
you. No one said anything about you here at all for nearly a week, and you

I'd love to be of more help, Bruce, but I pretty much limit myself these days
