New Sound For An Old Baseball Classic

Let’s get ready for the next baseball season with Ed Meeker’s version of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.” This classic recording of a hundred-year-old song extolling the virtues of America’s pastime is a must-listen.

Mr. Meeker was an Engineer at Edison Records when he was asked to record this version of a song written by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer. Ironically neither of these gentlemen had ever been to a baseball game before writing this classic song. We have enhanced the sound quality of the original wax cylinder digitally with Michael Rosen’s assistance.

Here’s a link to the original recording.

New Old Music from Peg Leg Howell – “Peg Leg Stomp”

Peg Leg Howell led a very spicy life to say the least. He lost his leg in a fight and was in and out of jail for bootlegging. A self-taught guitarist, he supplemented his income performing his music wherever he could. With the help of Eddie Anthony, Joshua Howell (Peg Leg) bridged the gap between Country and 12 Bar Blues. After listening to this song, I wish I could have seen Peg Leg perform.

This is exactly why I love this site so much. I would have never heard Lydia sing, so clearly. Again thanks to Michael Rosen @ Easy Bay Recorders, he made us a clean digital file. What a great vocal! What fine 12 string guitar playing! What a dark song! Check out the translated lyrics.

New, Old Music by Dick Justice

This song is still significant some 75 plus years later.

Originally written and recorded by Luke Jordan in 1927, Justice re-made his own version of the song blending a little folk with some blues and speeding up the tempo.
