Options Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt: Playlist from January 17, 2013 Options

Kevin Nutt's avatar View Kevin Nutt's profile Options

Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin', a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.

Is your avatar you, KN?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:19pm sinner:

I bet you a ton of okra it was pronounced Bittyville.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:20pm G:

Down the road a spell from Hooterville, mebbe.
  Thu. 1/17/13 8:22pm On the Yazoo:

A quick Google notes a Bittleville around Charlotte NC.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:23pm sinner:

Kudos on the research. Hardly anything is known about the Biddleville Quintette.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:24pm G:

@Yazoo: Wiki says: "Biddleville is the oldest surviving predominantly African-American neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is... home to Johnson C. Smith University, a historically black college once called the Biddle Institute, that was formed shortly after the Civil War to educate aspiring black preachers and teachers. Biddleville... was distinctly separate from Charlotte until it was annexed by the city in the early 1900s."
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:25pm sinner:

Excellent! When do you beging your field research?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:27pm G:

sinner's the king of field research. My area is library type research, which has partially migrated onto the underwebs.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:28pm sinner:

When gospel researchers back in the late 1970s went to Biddleville in NC, they couldn't find anyone who remembered a Biddleville Quintette or any other documentation mentioning a Biddleville Quintette.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:30pm Dave E:

What a strange name "Unknown Group" is, I guess it's better than annonymous.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:31pm G:

My advice (from my own research in other areas): If I wanted to find someone who knows, remembers, or could look it up, I'd try the websites of the local churches, email the pastors, and ask. Also, is there any chance of a QRS archive?
  Thu. 1/17/13 8:31pm On the Yazoo:

Just some folks singin'
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:34pm sinner:

QRS archive? No. They were a furniture company who got into the record business. Their pressings were terrible but they recorded some great great music.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:35pm Dave E:

Kevin - is that you as a youngster?
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:36pm sinner:

No. That is my 7 year old son Eli.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:39pm Dave E:

Kevin - dumb question . . . who is Deacon Travis?
  Thu. 1/17/13 8:40pm On the Yazoo:

Furniture companies frequently sold records, because they sold record players. They sold the record players "on time" so they had a regular clientele wanting to buy new records.. The furniture company probably came across a portable record cutter and made some recordings.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:42pm sinner:

Brother Deacon Travis sits on the third row next to Sister Geri and Homer Sparkman. For a couple of months he is on assignment somewhere in the Persian Gulf flying cargo and transport. He listens in on his smartphone.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:43pm G:

Is this the QRS? -- en.wikipedia.org...

"QRS Records was a United States record label, which produced three different groups of records 1928-1930, including some notable jazz and blues recordings. The QRS company began in 1900 as a manufacturer of piano rolls and were one of the leading makers throughout the 20th Century."

If so, they still exist today:


They make fancy pianos.


That's what I can do in five minutes! :)
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:43pm sinner:

Yazoo: Yes. Paramount was a furniture company to. It's bizarre to thing of it today.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:45pm sinner:

You're hired! Publish I say!
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:49pm G:

I don't give up easily. That's a lot of life. -- I remember in the late 90s I would tell people, there are more Ulysses mss. out there (Joyce), and they'd say you're nuts, they'd have turned up by now. But suddenly someone turned out to have a boxful in a closet. The guy I told they'd exist ended up evaluating them for the National Library of Ireland, which bought them for north of 10 million bucks...

Search and ye shall find, bet that's in a gospel tune...
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:50pm sinner:

...does that mean I have to read Ulysses again???
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 8:51pm G:

NO! lol
