I loved your Nat King Cole posts! Check out The Randy Van Horne Singers, famous for The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Jetsons and other Hanna/Barbera cartoons' theme songs. We also sang backup on The Nat King Cole Show in the late 1950s. We are the next generation keeping the group going:

As you know, there's a good bit of Eardley on You Tube, mostly with Mulligan. For my money, the player who should have been a star was Doug Mettome. Well, in my mind, he was a star. Sad, sad story. Ad I have yet to find him in a video. I doubt there is one, unless he's in a section that happened to get filmed playing.

Great find, for me. I'll check out more Eardley on YouTube. We need to hip the guy making the second recording for you to find a deferent recording method than microphone in front of a tiny speaker. Sony used to make an A to D converter for about 40 bucks, an easier route than buying another turntable with MP3 output. Just use the line out from stereo system. That last one could have been just a stand-alone record player with tiny speaker - no solution for that unless it has a line out or headphone out.

I totally agree with the comment regarding Doug Mettome. I can't understand how he escaped the notice of the jazz record producers of the era. A marvelous player who,unfortunately, died too soon and left us with far too little recorded legacy.
