Nathaniel Shilkret (1889-1982) was an American composer, conductor, clarinetist, pianist, business executive (A&R man), and music director (Victor, RKO and MGM). He was a child prodigy, touring the country; from his late teens to mid-twenties he was a clarinetist in the best New York music organizations. He joined the Victor Company around 1915, and soon was made manager of the department. In 1926 he became "director of light music." He made many thousands of recordings, possibly more than anyone in recording history. His son Arthur estimated the sales of these records was of the order of 50 million copies. He was the conductor of choice for many of Victor's innovative recordings. He conducted the first record made by the "electric method," as well as the first commercial Victor LP as early as 1931. He composed and arranged thousands of (classical and popular) pieces, and wrote several film scores. As for this great record, it was made in 1927. The excellent vocal is by Johnny Marvin.

Nzauckland, a strange coincidence made the stars disappear definitively, since the page layout was totally renewed. Oh well, I trust it won't stop you from enjoying this site :-)

Thanks a lot nzauckland! You can definitely still rate, just click the star number of your choice in the upper right corner above the liner notes. Sometimes, though (like comments), the ratings don't register well and it is necessary to try a couple of times. Oh well, technics can be stubborn but after all the main thing is being able to share and enjoy isn't it.

Most enjoyable. Can't these be rated any more? No way even to 'like'. In order to show appreciation we can only comment which probably wastes your time, or am I missing something?
