Mike,

Thanks so much for providing the session info for those Brunswick ETs!  What
a pity that many of the sheets are missing.

I wonder if anyone has the other discs to these programs; it would be nice
to assemble complete (or near as possible) dubs.

One Marsh disc (1017/1018) does say "33 R. M. P."  The other has "R. P. M."

There are handwritten titles on them as well:

1017:
Don Russo Orchestra (written under disc number at top)
A - College Melody [sic] - No. 1
B - College Melody [sic] - No. 2
C - Dan Russo Theme

1018:
Don Russo Orchestra (written under disc number at top)
A - Rigolletto [sic]
B - You'll Get By
C - Walk, Jenny, Walk

1063:
A - Lazy River
B - Suzanne
C - Fit as a Fiddle

1064:
A - How am I Doin'
B - Mood Indigo
C - In the Dim, Dim Dawning

You know, the music ain't half bad on these!

Any idea if the Marsh discs were intended to be used to create a faux-live
band show, or are the merely "station library" discs?  I'd love to see a
complete catalog of them.

Sammy

Only one of these is specifically listed in Laird.  During this era a 
lot of the sheets are missing, and some of the numbers are used out of 
order.

Might be after Dec 21, 1931 which would now be in the ARC era.

I have been unable to find specific info of when these were recorded and 
available.  The ones I have say on the label that they are recorded at 
33 1/3 R.M.P.  Is that what yours say?  Has anyone written the titles of 
the tracks on the labels.  The ones I have seen outside of my copies 
also have the titles like mine.  My guess is 1930 or 31.

Any chance of getting dubs of these?
