CLASSIC EARL HINES SESSIONS 1928-1945

DISCOGRAPHY

For the purposes of this discography, only the first issue number of each matrix is listed.

To the best of our knowledge, this discography is presented in the order in which each take was recorded. However, the CDs contained in this set are sequenced with the master take first and then any alternates at the conclusion of the disc.

Any sides that have been shown in discographies but are missing from the vaults or possibly in private collections are listed as unissued, master no longer exists. If a second title is shown in brackets, this designates an alternate or more commonly known title yet is not printed on the original label.

The following reference materials used for this discography were The Jazz Discography by Tom Lord (Cadence Jazz Books), Jazz Records 1897-1942 (Fifth Edition) by Brian Rust (Storyville) and The World Of Earl Hines (Charles Scribner’s Sons) by Stanley Dance. Further research was then compiled by Scott Wenzel and Brian Priestley.

Label Abbreviations: BB for Bluebird, Br for Brunswick, Col for Columbia, Cq for Conqueror, HMV for His Master’s Voice, JA for Jazz Archives; OK for OKeh, Rare for Raretone, RCA Vic for RCA Victor, Sig for Signature, Vic for Victor and Voc for Vocalion.

Country Codes: (E) for England, (F) for France, (G) for Germany.

Note: It’s not certain when TO-1181 and TO-1182 were recorded, however the Brunswick file card states the "Lab Date" as July 14, 1932 and that the two sides were "Recording room tests on 33 1/3 R.P.M.".

The Epic LP Hines Rhythm (EE 22021) incorrectly states that the Rosetta used is the -B take (-A is the take used).

Vault research: Anthony Fountain and Scott Wenzel

Producer’s Note:

The vision of this set on Earl Hines centers around the sessions under his leadership for labels now owned by Sony Music during the years 1928-1945. Although Hines had been a staff pianist at Victor (recording for Clifford Hayes Louisville Stompers and yodeler Charles Anderson for OKeh for example) we have decided to concentrate on these Hines-led sessions except for the Sidney Bechet Victor session from September 6, 1940.

The sound quality will differ from track to track due to the use of metal parts, vinyl test pressings, shellac 78s and LPs. However, some specific problems beyond our control include the following: On BVE 50528-1 (Glad Rag Doll) and BS-038258-1 (Grand Terrace Shuffle) a "swish" on the test pressing provided could not be fully eliminated. There is also some speed variations during the very start of TO-1181 (I Love You Because I Love You).

As noted in other Mosaic boxed sets that contain sources from metal parts, the master take is seldom the first but instead usually the last take recorded. For the majority of these sessions the initial release would be the -A or -1 take, while a -B or -2 take would become the second or alternate choice for release on the originally issued 78. In some of the earlier Victor sessions the master take turned out to be the higher take, so this is not an exact science. Nonetheless we have made every effort to try and approximate the original recording sequence.
