Mysterious Mose

( Naar de Nederlandse vertaling.)

Mysterious Mose (Doyle)- Harry Reser and his Radio All-Star Novelty Orchestra ( 30 March 1930 )
Today just a short contribution about a great 1930 hit Mysterious Mose. All recordings of this tune in my collection are from:
April 1930:
  • Bobby Dixon Broadcasters
  • Ted Weems and his Orchestra
  • Rube Bloom Bayou Boys
  • Karl Radlach and his Orchestra.
More contemporary recordings:
  • R. Crumb Cheap Suit Serenaders (1976),
  • the Dutch White House Orchestra
  • the Crooks, the string band of Frenk van Meeteren. (both 1986).

    An interesting version of this tune is to be found in the Fleischer cartoon Mysterious Mose, featuring Bimbo. The girl is, of course, an early version of good old Betty Boop. This is the third Fleischer production in which Betty Boop plays that was released. It was released as a Talkartoon on the 26th of December 1930.
 
One of my most favorite versions of Mysterious Mose is the version by R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit serenaders ....... Mysterious Mose:



The Hit of the Week version of Mysterious Mose might be  the most rare Durium record from the past. It was recorded by Boby Dixon's Broadcasters, a group by vocalist Dick robertson ( recorded April 1930)



 
 
Last, but not least, the version of two Dutchmen, Professor Peter (Peter Van Alphen) and Doctor Dick (Dick Heymans),founders of the Small Instrument Society. Enjoy it !!

Mysterious Mose (Doyle) - Harry Reser and his Radio All-Star novelty Orchestra 30 March 1930
Vandaag een korte bijdrage rond het nummer, een top hit in 1930: Mysterious Mose. Alle opnamen, die ik in mijn verzameling heb, dateren van April 1930:
  • Bobby Dixon Broadcasters
  • Ted Weems and his Orchestra
  • Rube Bloom Bayou Boys
  • Karl Radlach and his Orchestra.
Meer hedendaagse uitvoeringen:
  • R. Crumb's Cheap Suit Serenaders (1976)
  • de Nederlandse White House Orchestra (1986)
  • stringband The Crooks, van Frenk van Meeteren. (1986).
Een andere bekende versie is die uit de tekenfilm van Max Fleischer getiteld Mysterious Mose, met Bimbo. Het meisje in de film is, natuurlijk, een vroege vorm vanBetty Boop. Ze was daarvoor nog maar twee keer eerder te zien geweest in een Fleischer cartoon. Deze film werd uitgebracht als Talkartoon 26 December 1930.
 

Eén van de meest bekende versies van Mysterious Mose is die van R. Crumb en zijn Cheap Suit Serenaders:

 

Waarschijnlijk de meest zeldzaamste versie is die op een kartonnen Hit of the Weekplaat uit 1930.  Er zijn maar een paar exemplaren van bekend. Het werd in april 1930 opgenomen onder de naam van de Bobby Dixon's Broadcasters, een band o.l.v. Dick Robertson.


 
En ten slotte, last but not least, de versie van twee Nederlandse artiesten, Professor Peter (Peter van Alphen) en Doctor Dick (Dick Heymans), oprichters en leden van de Small Instrument Society. Geniet er van !!

I love Mysterious Mose! I even have the sheet music in my possesion. By any chance would it be possibble to record your collection into wma/mp3 etc? I dont know the legal side of this, my understanding is records before 1950 have all run out of copyright. Anyway, great stuff!
