Cripple Clarence Lofton 78 RPM US Discography

Post by rooster » Sat Oct 28, 2017 2:39 am

I'm sure some of you had to know that I wouldn't be able to leave the discography thread alone for long.

OK...and away we go...I'm only going to concentrate on the 78 RPM releases here, for numerous reasons. The LPs are for the most part reissues of the 78's and unreleased material.






1935

Vocalion 02951

Strut That Thing/Monkey Man Blues

Criple Clarence Lofton



1935

Melotone 6-11-66; Perfect 6-11-66; Romeo 6-11-66

You Done Tore Your Playhouse Down/Brown Skin Girls

Cripple Clarence Lofton



Note: The three labels listed were all owned by The American Recording Corporation. This company owned many labels and sold them sometimes to specific retail outlets. as in this case:



Melotone: Melotone had general retail distribution but was mostly known as a juke box label

Perfect: Perfect was mainly a general purpose label and so had regular distribution.

Romeo: The Romeo label was sold exclusively at Kress department stores.





Note: This coupling was also re-released on the Biltmore label and Jazz Classics label



194x

Biltmore 1042

You Done Tore Your Playhouse Down/Brown Skin Girls

Cripple Clarence Lofton



194x

Jazz Classics 256

You Done Tore Your Playhouse Down/Brown Skin Girls

Cripple Clarence Lofton



Note: "You Tore Your Playhouse Down" was also released on the Conqueror label with the flipside by a different artist. the Conqueror label was also owned by the American Recording Corporation and was sold exclusively by the Sears & Roebuck chain.



(Probably)1935

Conqueror 8758

You Tore Your Playhouse Down/Let's Get Drunk And Truck

Cripple Clarence Lofton/The Blue Chips



1935

Bluebird 5930

Policy Blues/Providence Help The Poor People

Albert Clemens/Joe Williams



Note: This Albert Clemens side is reportedly by Cripple Clarence Lofton under a pseudonym.



1939

Solo Art 12003

Streamline Train/Had A Dream

Cripple Clarence Lofton



1939

Solo Art 12009

Note: It appears some of the unreleased Solo Art recordings were later released on the Riverside label LP



1944

The Fives/Deep End Boogie

Cripple Clarence Lofton



1944

Session 10-005

Session 10-006

1946

Note: The Session label was initially run out of the Session Record Shop in Chicago, Ill. It was a very small label that was really producing records for specialty Jazz collectors market. The company specialized in re-issues of earlier recordings produced by other labels and later, new material recorded by themselves.

  • Firstly thank you for your effort and the provided information. But, I can't play any 78 rpm recording, due to the lack of this speed on both of my turntables. .Image

Well, Falk, what are you waiting for? You will have to get a turntable capable of playing 78RPM Records. The early Jazz of the 1920's, all of those great Blues singers, The String Bands of the 1930's, Jive and Bebop of the early 1940's. It goes on and on. You don't know what you are missing, my friend :D

I can't argue with that. Believe me when I say I know exactly what you mean.

Your discographies were one of the main things I missed when the RCG broke down a while back. Thanks for jumping back in. Always interesting and informative.
