Product Description

CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK

“Bix Restored” is the CD version of Sunbeam Records’ mammoth 20-LP Bix anthology, and is the result of a worldwide search for the best existing 78 rpm records and test pressings of all recordings on which legendary cornetist Bix Beiderbecke appeared. These recordings are presented in sound quality far superior to all previous reissues of this material (including the original Sunbeam LPs), thanks to the vaunted efforts of remastering engineers John R. T. Davies and Michael Kieffer. Taken as a whole, the series presents for the first time anywhere ALL original issues and ALL extant alternate takes on which Bix plays, many of which are making their first appearance on CD. Nothing is left out – not even the alternate take of Part 3 of “Metropolis!”

Each set comes complete with a 24-page booklet compiled by Randy Skretvedt, author, entertainment historian and Past Times publisher. Record collectors who contributed recordings to this project include Dr. Demento and Brian Rust. Greater care was also taken to present these recordings at the proper pitch than has previously been possible. Since many of the original Victor recordings slow down gradually during the performance, these recordings have never been presented at the correct pitch (even on the original 78s!) until now, using digital speed correction methods and the infallible ear of musician Dan Levinson to guide us.

Volume 3 of “Bix Restored” covers Bix’s recording career from February 28, 1928 through June 18, 1928, and contains 69 tracks (one of which is the “Thou Swell” test groove). It includes more of the great small group sessions with Frank Trumbauer, and the most intense period of activity with Paul Whiteman & his Orchestra, the stockpiling of recordings by both Victor and Columbia when the great bandleader changed labels. This set includes the first issue on any medium of take B of Trumbauer’s “My Pet” – the first new positively-identified Bix recording to surface in the past 20 years! Other highlights of the set include Whiteman’s recordings of “You Took Advantage of Me,” “Sugar,” Louisiana,” and the complete “Metropolis,” and Bix and his Gang doing “Somebody Stole My Gal” and “Thou Swell.”

“The sound is terrific!”
– Phil Evans, Beiderbecke biographer
