78 Record Finds
« on: February 04, 2013, 07:39:48 PM »
Big score this weekend, kiddies! Good pre-war 78s (or any good 78s for that matter) are just hard to find anymore. I've been scouring the antique and junk stores for them since I was young and when they used to turn up more often. I was lucky enough to find 10 good blues and gospel records on such labels as Paramount, Columbia and Herwin. (Oh, be still my heart!). In the batch are 2 Lucille Hegamin records on Cameo, Maggie Jones backed by Fletcher Henderson's band on Columbia, 2 Norfolk Jubilee Quartet on Paramount, a Biddleville Quintette on Paramont, a sermon by J.C. Burnette on Columbia and Down Home Jubilee Quartette on Herwin! (I think they are Sunset Jubilee Quartet when issued on Paramount). Here is the crown jewel; Dark Was The Night-Cold The Ground by Blind Willie Johnson backed with Nobody's Fault But Mine. Haven't had this good luck in years and all records are in good shape and not trashed. 'Course friends and family never understand the excitement of a good record find. Only other record collectors and Weenies.

Blind Willie Johnson: now that's a once in a lifetime find! Lightnin', I'm hoping you can share some of the back story?

I'm sure you'll want to keep it, but (as I've seen) the BWJ would fetch a good sum on eBay even in bad condition.

  Sometimes 78's are the only real deal there is. Can't find BWJ on 45 I don't think! Awsome.
