Just A Little Bit O' Driftwood / Out-O'-Town Gal Paul Whiteman And His Orchestra
Columbia master 146550-3, rec. New York, June 18 1928.
Al Rinker (tenor), Harry Barris (tenor) and Bing Crosby (baritone) with Paul Whiteman's orchestra.
Another nice chorus by the Charleston girls' favourite vocal trio, before Crosby's unreliability due to a heavy partying schedule forced Whiteman to fire the group. I love those original Columbia pressings: even when they look awful, they play with an amazing sound. I'd never have thought I could get such a good performance out of this rather grey and scratched copy.
