BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 8/30/15
VICTOR RECORDING LABEL - BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN!

The two major recording companies, Columbia and Victor got into the Blues recording industry shortly after the first Blues record by Mamie Smith in August of 1920. They both recorded steadily up until the end of 1923 when Victor decided not to record any more Blues. They stayed out of the Blues game until late 1926 when they recorded a few stray Blues titles and then returned in full force in 1927. This week our special feature will present sides recorded by the Victor Label upon their return. It's the Victor Label in 1927 - Back In The Saddle Again - Only on BBS!
