it’s the day for vienna, i guess.  had some trouble finding something that i felt like listening to (i’d been listening to a tom waits show and was thinking of posting it here, but it seems to be both on 100 greatest bootlegs and also on past daily.  sometimes, one little thing…).  but seriously, after listening to tom waits, what did i expect?  doh!

aaaaannyway, this finally caught my eye:  a lovely little two-fer from erich kleinschuster in the orf studios, from late 1969 & early 1970.  ‘rillenheini’ seeded them (separately) on dime in mid-2015, but they go together nicely (and are a bit short, individually).  and the vienna day?  salena jones in vienna & graz from 1973 popped up next somehow.

original seeder’s comment:  “found this tape in my vaults with the insufficient information “erich kleinschuster 10.10.1969 orf” … the recording probably was never broadcast.”

this is one of my favorite lounge recordings, with that bit of background noise giving atmosphere but not taking too much away from the music.  only problem (if it is that) is that you need to turn this up a bit.  a nice collection of classics, including one of my favorites ‘willow weep for me’

about all i could find out online about margaret parsons is that (news flash!) she’s a jazz singer apparently based in the charlottesville area.

recorded all the way in the back of the club so as to be unobtrusive. definite club ambiance, including some conversation, clinking of glasses and cutlery, etc., but for the most part this was a good listening audience, allowing for a decent and enjoyable recording. recorded and seeded by bill tetzeli
