ARTIST: Kansas City Frank and His Footwarmers
LABEL: Paramount 12898 TITLES: Wailing Blues / St. James Infirmary
DESCRIPTION: Sublime Chicago jazz rarity on Paramount. Beautiful copy, and both sides play loud and crisp with quiet shellac except for one issue. The "Wailing Blues" side fell victim to some circumstance that caused surface damage to a section of the outer half of this side. Most of the side retains its original shine, but the damaged area has a duller looking surface, and on play, causes a swish which gradually recedes in volume and disappears midway through the side. Still, good luck finding a copy of this in any shape, let alone one this clean. First time this Paramount release has been offered on eBay. From the Ken Swerilas collection.
