Greetings from FixitLand!

Yes it's me and I'm back again...<grin>...

Got a recent acquisition which surprised me. Until last Friday, the  
highest-numbered black-label Victor I'd seen with "RCA Victor Co."  
Scroll labels (with "VE" top and bottom, and "Orthophonic Recording"  
above Nipper) was 25042. In that Friday acquisition was a copy of  
Victor 25122, not only with "RCA Victor Co." Scroll labels but  
Oakland-pressed with an 'O' on both sides' labels (late Oakland  
pressings tend to have the 'O' on only one side). How high have you  
good folks seen those labels go?

Also got a copy of Brunswick 7839 with *gold print* (West Coast  
pressing), exceeding by around 200 numbers the highest such label  
I've previously seen...! Has a weird typeface to boot.

For anyone interested, I've posted the Tommy Dorsey April 3 and 15,  
1936 sessions at the BigBandJazzMusic Yahoo! Group.

Take care,

J. E. Knox 'The Victor Freak'
Poof read? Why brother?
