condition: good

This is a 7-Disc set (see photo) of the BANDS THAT PLAYED THE BLACKHAWK––6 Hours of on-the-air broadcasts of 14 big bands that played at Chicago’s famous Blackhawk Restaurant between 1929 and 1949. Coon-Sanders Nighthawks (1929); Bob Crosby (1938-40); Jack Teagarden (1939); Art Kassel and his Kassels in the Air (1940); Ozzie Nelson (1940); Blue Barron (1940); Raymond Scott (1940); Les Brown (1941); Chico Marx (1942); Del Courtney (1945); Eddy Howard (1948); Buddy Moreno (1949); Al Trace and his Silly Symphonists (1949). Compilation by big band historian Karl Pearson.

Includes descriptive 24-page booklet with track details and program notes; informative essay on the Blackhawk by noted Chicago band historian Chuck Sengstock; illustrations and photos from the Blackhawk/Roth family archives.

BONUS CD– Broadcast historian Chuck Schaden’s 1980 interview with Don Roth, son of Blackhawk Restaurant founder Otto Roth and subsequent owner of the venue.

I am saying these are in 'good' condition, but they actually look to be in very good or excellent condition. I've never played them. The box has a little loose plastic on the bottom right of the cover... but mostly the rest looks very good also.

Have found this set selling for between $40 and $50 elsewhere.

Please contact me with any questions. Cash only. Thank you.
