Just to add that it is the same on Chronological Classics 501 "Jimmie
Lunceford and His Orchestra 1930-1934" (they issued only master takes), mx
81324-1 issued on Victor 24586.
I have no idea what went wrong during cutting the master disc. It sounds
like some sort of feedback included in main signal path. Could it be sound
of a monitor speaker from control room?
Once I hear somewhat different effect with few squeaks (just like a positive
feedback that woke up amp oscillation) and strange echo on some end 1920s
Parlophon Hungarian record, cut onto that record (commercially issued).
