Continuing with Harbinger Records' acclaimed series of albums devoted to jazz pianist, composer, Broadway songwriter, and black music pioneer Eubie Blake, we proudly present the original demo to the proposed Broadway musical 'Shuffle Along of 1950.' Harbinger's recording of Sissle and Blake singing the score to the original production of 'Shuffle Along' won the Grammy Award for it's brilliant liner notes by Richard Carlin and Ken Bloom, authors of an upcoming biography of Eubie Blake to be published by Oxford University Press. They are repeating their assignment for this recording. Also included is a bonus track featuring remastering of the only surviving acetate of a historical "Salute to Ruth King." Ruth King was a famous Cleveland DJ who celebrated black musicians. And such notables as Sissle and Blake and the legendary WC Handy, composer of St. Louis Blues, play for Ms. King. Several songs from the original 'Shuffle Along' are included as are new songs written especially for this production. Later, other musicians augmented the score, and these songs are also included in this rare recording.
