“A Good Man Is Hard To Find”
Julia Garity And Her Boys
Victor 22812-A September 11,1931
Here is one of only four recordings made by Julia Garity who performed mostly in night clubs and cabarets from the 1910s through the 1950s. The excellent but unaccredited band that accompanies her here was Snooks And His Memphis Ramblers.
In 1933 Victor reissued this recording under the pseudonym of Williams’ Cotton Club Orchestra on its new budget priced Bluebird and Sunrise labels. Victor soon discontinued the Sunrise label but kept Bluebird. The reissue was a dubbed transfer rather than a repressing. But while the original Victor issue had the benefit of being pressed from the original master, it is likely that the reissue, especially the one on the Sunrise label, would fetch a premium due to its rarity.
