Edison Dance Bands #3 CD176C

I used a little science to get around the rumble issue with these vertical cut Edison Diamond Disc records. I use a very special vintage tonearm made by Pickering - the 190D. The arm has no vertical travel aside from a very light assembly holding the cartridge. Because of enertia, when the record is played at a low speed, the small assembly can move up and down with the irregularities, reducing the rumble. However, the bass frequencies were reduced due to the extremely low mass of the cartridge assembly. The solution was adding some mass to the assembly, which, because of enertia, the added mass serves to stabilize the cartridge, and extract the lower frequencies. I started this project about 30 years ago, and had recorded about 20 of my Edison Doamond Disc records and passed them on to other collectors, so for those I had to rely on my original transfers. The rest are fresh transfers from records still in my collection. The resulting warmth and depth of sound is really amazing. I only wish I'd kept the records for my original selection to do the fresh transfers for them too. They still sound pretty good regardless.

Edison was one of the few companies to use a permanent stylus in their Phonographs. Pathe used a sapphire ball for their vertical cut/hill and dale recordings, but the width of the groove, they didn't allow for as much time as the Edisons. Thomas Edison himself claimed that one of his records could be played 1,000 times with no wear. In volume one liner notes I talked about the issue of rumble due to the outside swelling of the organic core of Diamond Disc records with exposure to moisture and air. I had tried years ago to eliminate the rumble by slowing the transfer so that the cartridge had time to move with the irregularities and reduce the rumble, but found that the bass frequenies were compromised. The answer was adding additional mass to my cartridge assembly, and adjusting tracking weight to compensate for the additional weight. Because of inertia, the addional mass stabilizes the cartridge, resulting in smoother bass response.The process was further enhanced because of the Pickering 190D tone arm that I use that has no vertical motion aside from the very light assembly holding the cartridge. When the whole arm has to move vertically, as in a regular type tone arm, the enertia will cause the rumble to be recorded. It is said that the Broadway Dance Orchestra is a pseudonym for Vincent Lopez - but also have information citing an augmented Original Memphis Five. Hazay Natzy's Biltmore Hotel Orchestra was first directed by Natzy himself, in 1917 but direction was taken over by Jack Green. Featuring William Scotti on ts, little else is known about this band, which recorded extensively for Pathe, Columbia, Emerson,Okeh, and Gennett, up till 1925. Don Parker was a well known soprano and alto sax player from New York, recording for Pathe and Edison till 1924. He played also with the Original Dixieland Jazz Band. ~ Mickey Clark
