Nov. 11th in Gennett History, 1924: An Interesting and Varied Day of Sessions Occurred in NYC

Nov. 11th in Gennett History, 1924: an interesting and varied day of sessions occurred in NYC. In no particular order, members of the NY Philharmonic recorded several sides that end up on both Ginn and Gennett. Then, The Westchester Biltmore Country Club Orchestra recorded three sides. Frederic Baer recorded “I Lost My Heart In June” and it appeared on Gennett 10097.  Finally a mystery ‘Quartette,’ made three personal recording sides for the Ku Klux Klan, including such hummable hits as “Onward Valiant Klansman” and “The Klan is Coming” (KKK 75008). For some reason their campy take of “Tramp! Tramp! Tramp!” doesn’t see the light of day.
