Jazz at Lincoln Center Acquires Frank Driggs Collection

Jazz at Lincoln Center Acquires Frank Driggs Collection | History of sound recordings | Scoop.it

Jazz at Lincoln Center has announced that it has acquired the jazz photo collection of the late Frank Driggs, one of the most extensive in the world. In addition to photographs, the Frank Driggs Collection includes posters, sheet music, records and Driggs’ personal papers.

Originally an amateur trumpeter, Driggs began acquiring images in the early 1950s, but, according to a press release from JALC, “During the second half of the decade he started to collect artifacts in earnest … Driggs became an executive at Columbia Records and later, worked for RCA Victor. His specialty was jazz reissue projects that included Count Basie, Bix Beiderbecke, Cab Calloway, Lionel Hampton, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, Fletcher Henderson and Lester Young. During the 1960s, Driggs … brought Robert Johnson's music to a mass market for the first time … From 1977 forward, administering the Frank Driggs Collection became his primary occupation. Driggs was still at it when he died on September 20, 2011.”

Vikram Sampath:

New Delhi: Mahatma Gandhi's speech caught on gramophone during his 1931 visit to England now shares space with classical music legend M S Subhalakshmi's song, recorded when she was just nine, in a new virtual archive.

The Archive of Indian Music (AIM), set to be formally launched on July 30, is an online compilation of vintage gramaphonic records of speeches, songs, plays etc dating as far back as 1902. 

"This is a private initiative, a non profit trust where we source oldest rarest gramophone records like old ghazals, speeches of leaders, theatre recordings, folk music etc and digitise it for free access by laymen," Vikram Sampath, founder AIM said.

Archivists Save Vintage Recordings From Superstorm Sandy | History of sound recordings | Scoop.it

Archivists at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton are working to restore more than 700 vintage recordings ruined by Superstorm Sandy.

Vintage record seller Peter Muldavin donated the recordings to the university'sRecorded Sound Archives in April after Superstorm Sandy hit his mother-in-law's Long Beach, New York home where he was storing them.

Muldavin claims his collection of 18,000 vintage children’s recordings is the largest of its kind. They are records that rotate at 78 revolutions per minute or rpms. He goes by the name the “Kiddie Rekord King.”

Library Of Congress Hoping To Cut Through Tangled Copyright Laws In Order To Archive Historic Sound Recordings | Techdirt

Library Of Congress Hoping To Cut Through Tangled Copyright Laws In Order To Archive Historic Sound Recordings | Techdirt | History of sound recordings | Scoop.it

The copyright laws governing sound recordings are a mess, especially here in the US. The steady march of copyright protection towards perpetuity hasn't helped, extending protection on original recordings to the point where archiving decaying media is generally perceived to border on impossible.

 

In Europe, sound recordings enter the public domain 50 years after their initial release. Once that happens, anyone can reissue them, which makes it easy for Europeans to purchase classic records of the past. In America, by contrast, sound recordings are "protected" by a prohibitive snarl of federal and state legislation whose effect was summed up in a report issued in 2010 by the National Recording Preservation Board of the Library of Congress: "The effective term of copyright protection for even the oldest U.S. recordings, dating from the late 19th century, will not end until the year 2067 at the earliest.… Thus, a published U.S. sound recording created in 1890 will not enter the public domain until 177 years after its creation, constituting a term of rights protection 82 years longer than that of all other forms of audio visual works made for hire."

 

We've discussed this problem here before. For instance, an entire library of 1930's jazz recordings is locked up at the National Jazz Museum, available for listening by "appointment only." While it's being archived in an effort to preserve it, the recordings themselves cannot be accessed otherwise by the general public. Other works aren't even that lucky. Historic audio recordings are degrading and disappearing, but the twisted maze of copyright laws governing these recordings has thwarted archival efforts. The Library of Congress, our nation's largest archive, is hoping to prevent this from happening. Following up on its study on sound recording preservation from 2010, the Library has narrowed down the aspects of American copyright law that will need to change if this national archival plan is to become a reality.

Nancy Drew Sleuth: 1930s Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew Sleuth: 1930s Nancy Drew | History of sound recordings | Scoop.it

1930s Nancy Drew is not your Nancy Drew of today and she certainly wasn't the same sleuth in the 1950s or 1960s. She was bolder, more daring, worked by herself more often, rarely relied on adults or men to get her out of scrapes, didn't trust the police to do the job right, didn't always respect her elders, and drove like a fiend.
