Do you get your thrills from feeling like you’re breaking the rules? Do you tend to get upset by music made after 1950? For those who fit this rather snug box, the National Museum of Scotland opens its doors a little later on 16 May as part of its Museum Lates series. Eschewing decks for twin gramophones, vintage veteran DJ Lord Holyrude (The Gatsby Club, Vegas) is a sight to be- hold, playing exclusively shellac originals from 1920 to 1950, and changing needles each time he changes a record. We asked him for his five favourite 78rpm records.
Coon Sanders Original Nighthawk Orchestra – Deep Henderson (1926) ‘Henderson is a much-sampled favourite on the electro-swing scene. Many of the dance bands of the 20s and 30s recorded versions of this tune, but this has to be my favourite.’ Leo Reisman and his Or- chestra – Puttin’ On The Ritz (1930) ‘This version of the Fred Astaire classic is always a great way to kick off any gramophone set.’
Bing Crosby – Ho Hum (1931) ‘I was never a fan of Bing until I heard this recording. Many people have recorded this song – there’s a great version by Ambrose And His Orchestra that I often play.’ Nat Gonella and his Geor- gians – I Can’t Dance I Got Ants In My Pants (1937) ‘Novelty records were very popular in the 20s and 30s and Nat can’t fail to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step with his very peppy rendition of a much- covered tune.’
Artie Shaw – Begin The Beguine (1938) ‘One of the top dance tunes from the big band swing era. Artie Shaw was a contemporary of Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman and swung with such effortless elegance . . . A joy to listen and dance to.’ (Rosie Davies) ■ DJ Lord Holyrude plays Museum Lates at National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, on Fri 16 May.
