For those who were at ARSC Conference you heard Peter Shambarger's talk about the discovery of the RARE Shuffle Along Backers disc of Shuffle Along of 1950 - a show that was never produced. There was lots of interest in the forthcoming CD from Harbinger.
Well the label has a SPECIAL deal if you pre-order over next two weeks. Honestly, it's a no brainer.  See below.

BTW, Peters talk will be available to current arsc members in the next week or so when the conference presentations are posted. I highly recommend you listen to Peter's talk - which includes excerpts.

SISSLE & BLAKE?S SHUFFLE ALONG OF 1950

Continuing with Harbinger Records? acclaimed series of CDs devoted to jazz pianist, composer, Broadway songwriter, and black music pioneer Eubie Blake we proudly present the original demo to the proposed Broadway musical, Shuffle Along of 1950.

Harbinger?s recording of Sissle and Blake singing the score to the original production of Shuffle Along (Harbinger CD: HCD-3204) won the Grammy Award for it?s brilliant liner notes by Richard Carlin and Ken Bloom, authors of an upcoming biography of Eubie Blake to be published by Oxford University Press. They are repeating their assignment with liner notes for this recording of Shuffle Along of 1950. Also included as bonus tracks is a remastering of the only surviving acetate of a historical ?Salute to Ruth King.? Ruth King was a famed Cleveland DJ who celebrated black musicians. And such notables as Sissle and Blake and the legendary W.C. Handy, composer of ?St. Louis Blues? play for Ms. King.

1921?s all-black musical comedy, Shuffle Along, was the most successful Broadway show of its time. The score contained the future standards ?I?m Just Wild About Harry? and ?Love Will Find a Way.? It marked the emergence of a new black musical theatre. It desegregated theatres in New York and across the country, the first time blacks and whites could sit together in a theatre.

Years later in 1950, songwriters Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle decided to devise a revised version of their original hit and made this acetate recording to interest potential backers. This recording contains narration by lyricist Noble Sissle explaining the plot of the new show. Several of the songs from the original Shuffle Along are included as are new songs written especially for this production by Sissle and Blake. Later, others augmented the score and their songs are also included in this rare recording.

In their liner notes, Carlin and Bloom tell the fascinating story of the production of Shuffle Along of 1950 and its eventual premiere on Broadway as Shuffle Along of 1952. It?s a story of great highs and the lowest of lows. A tale that both Broadway acolytes and jazz fans will find fascinating.
