Do you know who sang on these Ed Sullivan Presents recordings.
IT NEEDS VOICE IDENTIFICATION SOFTWARE AND A COLLECTION OF SUSPECTS.
One of my odd jobs was hunting down all the cheap issues of West Side
and songs therefrom for Leonard Bernstein's office so they could be sure
were collecting royalties.
I have a West Side Story on Vox. Are the credits legitimate???
DON'T KNOW. LB SURELY GOT PAID BY VOX SO I NEVER CONSIDERED IT.

Wasn't this the recording with Richard Korn conducting? HE WAS SO
Some of the Halo (.$ .99) records were made this way. I remember Eddie
(EJS records, Golden Age of Opera, etc.) once telling me he used these
record some of the active opera singers of the period. Kurt Baum may have
one. This was probably part of a gig Eddie did for Allegro or Remington
trickled down to Halo. I've no paper work on this, just recollection.
other tenors of that ilk reused these audio backgrounds.
I have quite a few Allegro and remington opera recordings and I wouldn't
be surprised that most of them were made with the singers performing with

I have Forum SF 9044 which is JOYCE HATTO performing Rhapsody in Blue with
the "Hamburg Pro Music", "George Byrd" conducting. Having never heard of
that maestro, I wonder if he was real or a pseudonym.
In addition, Vox leased tapes for use in some of encycloperdia sets and
ventures. Sometimes credited, often not, they add to the confusion.
What do you mean by "encyclopedia sets". I don't recall many Vox's with
misleading attributions, except for the several names for the Vienna
Symphony Orchestra, and the Stuttgart Pro Musica, which I believe was
basically the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra without Munchinger conducting. I
almost forgot, the Corelli Tri-Centenary String Orchestra which was
comprised of NBC Symphony players.
I MEAN ISSUES ON OTHER LABELS USING VOX TAPES. MAYBE THE FUNK & WAGNALLS
SET. THERE WERE AT LEAST A DOZEN, SOME FOR CLASSROOM USE.
