A while ago, a question was asked about music heard on a variety of cartoons that were seen frequently on TV and have been issued in "collections" of early cartoons. I've posted mp3's of them on my website and four out of nine have been identified by some very knowledgeable collectors including Vincent Fitzpatrick, John Wilby, Piet Schreuders (Beauhunks), David Lennick, and Vince Giordano (BMG). Apparently vocals were cut out for the cartoon use, which added to the confusion, and were definitely a surprise, although it makes ultimate sense. So far these have been ID'd:- http://188.8.131.52/TRACK3.mp3 George Olsen, "Where'd You Get Those Eyes." Victor, 1926. The vocal has been cut out. It would have started at 1:32. CONFIRMED http://184.108.40.206/TRACK5.mp3 George Olsen. Victor. "Just a Little Thing Called Rhythm." The vocal is cut out at 1:30. CONFIRMED http://220.127.116.11/TRACK7.mp3 "Meadowlark." George Olsen, on Victor, 1926 CONFIRMED http://18.104.22.168/TRACK8.mp3 "Dancing Shadows", band is Paul Whiteman. The sax solo is by Frank Trumbauer. CONFIRMED I think they could turn out to be ALL from Victor. I believe for a while they were licensing their commercially released recording material to anyone who wanted to pay to use it, which is how some of it appeared in cartoons that otherwise wouldn't have had a sound track. Much cheaper than hiring a composer and an orchestra to write music to fit the picture! These were copied from tracks of cartoons, probably originally silent, that had a sound track added later to extend their marketability as sound became the standard. The following tunes are as yet still unidentified... please listen to them and see if anything sounds familiar:- http://22.214.171.124/TRACK1.mp3 http://126.96.36.199/TRACK2.mp3 http://188.8.131.52/TRACK4.mp3 http://184.108.40.206/TRACK6.mp3 http://220.127.116.11/TRACK9.mp3 ...
