Easter with Shorty Thompson

NOTE: DivShare has been acting up (again) and a good chunk of my audio has disappeared. Sorry if you have tried to listen to the samples and instead hear the the sound of silence. Going through the monstrous  task of moving over all of the DivShare audio on here to my own hosting and embedding my own player.

Found this holiday appropriate 78rpm - the second Shorty Thompson disc on the Ace label in my collection (also have Ace 001 "Colorado Rose" / "Baby I've Got the Goods on You"). Maybe 002 will turn up, someday.

There's already a ton of bio info about Shorty on the Internet, so I won't copy and paste here (I mention a bit about him in a past blog post on Dave Spielman and his Rhythm Rangers). That said, I can't find ANY information on this release.  Every discography I have found on Shorty fails to mention this record.  Can't imagine stumbling upon a rarity here, but who knows.

Happy holiday...
