Classic south side Chicago jazz from 1928, featuring the Dodds brothers, Natty Dominique, and the great Bill Johnson on string bass. Both sides play well with a 3.5-mil stylus, and "Bull Fiddle Blues" plays with only very light distortion on a few of the horn peaks, and a cluster scratch that glitches for several grooves. There's no distortion on the bass notes on either side. "Blue Washboard Stomp" looks like it will play about the same, but it has a little more distortion on the horn peaks. Visually the record looks more V++ than E- due to light scuffing, light scratches and a slightly dull surface, but both sides truly fall in between those two grades, about E-- on the A side and E-V+ on the B side. This record is from the personal collection of radio personality and music historian Barret “Dr. Demento” Hansen, who is starting to downsize portions of his collection.
