March 18 in Gennett History…

1931: The Lonesome Cowgirl recorded “Anniversary  Blue Yodel No. 7” in Richmond. It appeared on Superior 2631.

1893: Happy 130th Birthday, Jean Goldkette! (3/18/1893). Goldkette played piano on Duane Sawyer’s 1918 Gennett recording that appeared on Gennett 8512. The songs were “Going Up (Intro: Here’s To The Two Of You)” and “Sinbad (Intro: Raz – Ma – Taz and I’ll Tell The World).”  Goldkette went on to form a popular big band in the 1920s which included another former Gennett Recording artist, Bix Beiderbecke, who play together on this Victor release, “Clementine.”
