Bill McKeag and his Orchestra-1936



As you may recall from an earlier blog, I announced the discovery of an acetate recorded in 1936 by a totally unknown Toronto orchestra-Bill McKeag and his Orchestra. Here now for the first time anywhere are the two tracks, Remember, and, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I must apologize for the sound quality of the recordings, as I do not have any filters for noise reduction at present. I have reposted the photographs of the record also, below.

  1. Paul Lindemeyer Says:

    “Remember” is Larry Clinton’s arrangement, which he recorded for radio transcriptions. It probably dates to late 1937 or ’38.
