Not many care about this stuff but I find it interesting, and it's my Forum, so get over it. :^) The contrast between two very different styles of recording a band just after the dawn of electric recording in 1925. First, this catchy 1930 Brunswick recording was done in a very small room with two microphones and a 1/2 watt cutting amp (that nicely overloads on every musical peak for ease of cutting.) The sound is upfront and must have been pleasing on the crude machines of the day. After all, this record cost one dollar in Depression era America.
