New Phonograph Record

( Naar de Nederlandse vertaling.)

Today two new 1930s contributions, send to me by Guido van Rijn, about the Hit of the week record. Both are from ca. April - May 1930 as the items refer to the Harlem Hot Chocolates recordings released in May 1930. The Hit of the week was released each week at news stands and the first article, New Phonograph Record to Sell for Fifteen Cents, explains this new kind of gadget. It suggests, that these records were for sale in Boston for the very first time around May 1930, and that might be correct, as the Hit of the week were released in New York City alone at its very beginning ( February 1930).

This is a leaflet, distributed early May 1930 that announces the new Hit of the week ( Hit of the week 1046 ) that contains the tune St. James Infirmary as played by the Harlem Hot Chocolates. Mind that nobody in this leaflet, nor in the article, tells what band actually was hidden behind that name.
Well, let's make it to a public question:


What band was actually the Harlem Hot Chocolates?


Please send your answers to keepswinging@live.nl and the winners names will be published in this Keep swinging web log later.

      Vandaag aandacht voor twee nieuwe vondsten uit 1930, die ik ontving van Guido van Rijn, over de Hit of the week plaat. Beide zijn uit april - mei 1930 aangezien ze gaan over de Harlem Hot Chocolates opnamen uitgebracht in mei 1930. Hit of the week platen waren wekelijkse uitgaven en het eerste artikel, New Phonograph Record to Sell for Fifteen Cents ( = Nieuwe gramofoonplaat te koop voor 15 cent), legt alles uit over dit nieuwe hebbeding. In het artikel wordt gesuggereerd dat de plaat in Boston nog helemaal nieuw is, en dat kan kloppen, want de eerste Hit of the week's werden in februari 1930 alleen nog maar in New York uitgebracht.
      Dit is een strooibiljet of foldertje uitgegeven t.b.v. de introductie van de plaat St. James Infirmary gespeeld door de Harlem Hot Chocolates. (Hit of the week 1046). Opvallend is dat noch in het artikel noch in het strooibiljet verteld wordt welke band er achter deze naam schuil gaat.

      Leuk om dit maar eens in de groep te gooien !!

      Welke band gaat er schuil achter de naam Harlem Hot Chocolates?
