The Sounds of Champions
In the wake of my recent New York Times piece about the boxing-theatre connection, my good friends at Archeophone Records wrote to tell me that two of the old-tyme champs are on disc. Jack Johnson is on Archeophone’s Lost Sounds CD, and a track by James J. Corbett (with Neil O’Brien) shows up on their Monarchs of Minstrelsy. And, if you’re in a buying mood, why not check out the two releases of Archeophone’s for which I wrote the liner notes, releases of Nat M. Wills and Van and Schenck respectively? Only 145 shopping days ’til Christmas!
