Do Song Covers Violate Copyright? 21 Nov Phantom Dancer


Thirty-two years on air, heard on 23 radio stations and online, Greg Poppleton is Australia’s longest running swing DJ and Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer.

Every week he brings you The Phantom Dancer, a live, multi-award-winning non-stop mix of swing and jazz sourced from real 1920s-1960s radio broadcasts.

In Greg’s eight Phantom Dancer sets this week we hear Bop takes of old songs on live 1947-51 radio, Duke Ellington from his 1945 ABC ‘Date with the Duke’ series, 1930s German dance bands playing the hits from the movies, and a set of R’n’B singers live over CBS radio’s Al Freed Rock’n’Roll Dance Party in 1956.Al Freed Show

And the R’n’B set brings me to this question…

DO SONG COVERS VIOLATE COPYRIGHT?

Why does the R’n’B set bring me to this question? Because two of the singers we’ll be hearing on today’s Phantom Dancer from live 1956 radio had copyright run-ins with a big band/pop singer who also happened to be on today’s show (in Set 2), Georgia Gibbs.

The first R’n’B singer you’ll hear on today’s Phantom Dancer (and all the singers were backed in these ‘Rock’n’Roll Dance Party’ radio broadcasts by the Count Basie Orchestra) is LaVerne Baker.

LAVERN BAKER – TWEEDLEE DEE RIP OFFLaVern Baker
Born Delores LaVern Baker, LaVern Baker had several hit records in the 1950s. Her most successful disc was “Tweedlee Dee” (1955) which you’ll here her sing live today. This latin tempo song was LaVern’s first hit. It got to 4 on the R&B chart and 14 on the national US pop chart. Meanwhile, singer Georgia Gibbs recorded a note-for-note cover of the song that reached number 1. A real kick in the guts that made LaVern ask the question,

“Does this Song Cover violate my copyright?”

She made an unsuccessful attempt to sue Gibbs. She unsuccessfully petitioned the US Government to consider such covers copyright violations.

ETTA JAMES – DANCE WITH ME HENRY GRAB Etta Jamse
Born Jamesetta Hawkins, Etta started learning to sing at age five. Her singing teacher used to punch her in the chest while she sang to force her voice to come from her diaphragm. She developed an unusually strong voice.

Los Angeles big band leader, Johnny Otis, saw 14 year old Etta singing with a Doo-wop group and booked her to sing his “answer song” to Hank Ballard’s “Work with Me, Annie”. He even gave her co-credit as lyricist. The song was “Dance with Me, Henry”, which and you’ll hear Etta singing it live on today’s Phantom Dancer. But again, Georgia Gibbs recorded a cover that took a lot of the thunder. It was a version called “The Wallflower” and it reached number one on the Billboard Top 100. This made Etta very angry.
Her intellectual property had been appropriated.

FAYE ADAMSFaye Adams
Faye Adams’ father was a gospel singer and at age five she joined her sisters to sing spirituals, regularly performing on local radio shows. She, too, had a big voice, billed as, “Atomic Adams’.

Her first hit, “Shake a Hand”, topped the US Billboard R’n’B chart for ten weeks in 1953 and hit 22 on the US pop chart, selling one million copies and receiving a gold disc.

In 1954, Adams had two more R&B chart toppers. The one she sings on today’s Phantom Dancer, live over CBS in 1956, is “I’ll Be True”. This song was then covered by Bill Haley and later by Jackie DeShannon.
Covering a song is much different to appropriating a song. All cool, because the original composer/lyricist is acknowledged and compensated. I’ll explain about the legalities of song covers below.

IVORY JOE HUNTER
Ivory Joe Hunter

He’s the final R’n’B singer in today’s Phantom Dancer set of 1956 rock’n’roll radio. He’d had hits on the R’n’B charts since the mid 1940s and was billed as The Baron of the Boogie and The Happiest Man Alive. Maybe he was happy because no-one was copying his songs while they were still climbing the charts. On today’s Phantom Dancer he sings his 1950 R’n’B chart-topper, “I Almost Lost My Mind”, live, of course, and with the Count Basie Orchestra.

Now, to the legalities of covering a song, quoted directly from the Australian Performing Rights Association (APRA) website…

A BAND IS PERFORMING MY SONGS. CAN THEY DO THIS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION?
Yes, in most cases they can. The venue in which the band plays must hold an APRA licence; it is not the responsibility of the individual bands. The APRA licence gives the venue a blanket licence to authorise the performance of all copyright music.

DO I NEED A LICENCE?
Yes. You may need to obtain an AMCOS licence if you want to make a recording of a song composed by another writer.

WHAT ABOUT UPLOADING COVER VERSIONS TO DIGITAL SERVICE PROVIDERS?
If you are recording a cover version of a work and wish to make it available on a US-based digital service provider (iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify etc), you are required to take out a licence with the Harry Fox Agency (AMCOS equivalent in the USA). Go to www.harryfox.com/license_music/ and head to their Songfile Mechanical Licensing tool. In cases where the Harry Fox Agency do not represent the work, you may be able to obtain a compulsory licence via RightsFlow – see www.rightsflow.com and head to the Limelight licensing area.

IN AUSTRALIA?
As long as you’ve first obtained a manufacturing licence from AMCOS, you can supply your recording to a digital service provider (DSP) such as iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify etc. APRA AMCOS licenses DSPs directly, and so royalties for downloads will be collected by APRA AMCOS on behalf of the rights holders.

I hope this has been of help to you, with a bit of R’n’B history thrown in. Oh, and for more R’n’B history, check out this YouTube footage of LaVern Baker as your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week. Enjoy!

Could you Buy a Fax Machine before 1988? 7 November Phantom Dancer Play List


Yes you could – in 1938!

And the faxes were sent over AM radio, not the phone line.

Hear one in operation on today’s Phantom Dancer – your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV (and with a whole hour of live 1930s swing radio today).

I bring you The Phantom Dancer every Tuesday after the midday news on 107.3 2SER and online at radio 2ser.com

1930s RADIO FAXES
On today’s Phantom Dancer, marvel at the ‘pump and wheeze’ sound of a 1930s fax machine taken from a recording made in 1938 to introduce WOR New York’s new radio fax service.

As the radio announcer and station engineer tell us, the fax service is a ‘new breakthrough’ in radio to transmit news and information overnight to subscribers with radio fax machine in their homes.

About a dozen US AM radio stations in the late 1930s transmitted a radio fax service, with news faxes sent between midnight and 6am when the stations were ordinarily shut down.

Static was a problem. Static from a passing car or lightening could wipe out whole pages of information.

By the early 1940s shortwave and ultra short wave frequencies were set aside solely for the transmission of faxes.

When FM radio was introduced after WW2, some FM stations transmitted radio faxes on their broader bandwidth subcarriers. A page of news and pictures would take 15 minutes to be printed from an FM service.

So easy to use, even a child can operate it. A 1938 publicity photo shows a Finch home printer receiving a facsimile newspaper from WWJ in Detroit. (Detroit News Archives)

Lack of public interest in this expensive substitute newspaper technology killed the mass production of home radio fax machines.

However, radio facsimile was still in use for the transmission of weather maps by satellite in 2010.

The Boswell Sisters Bio and Film – 31 Oct Phantom Dancer Play List


Hear Greg Poppleton bring you The Phantom Dancer – your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV – every Tuesday after the midday news on 107.3 2SER and online at radio 2ser.com

See the full Phantom Dancer play list below, including a 1930s radio transcription by the influential jazz vocal harmony trio, the Boswell Sisters.


BOSWELL SISTERS – PHANTOM DANCER PROGRAM NOTES
Martha, Connie and Vet were the 1920s-1930s harmony sensations, The Boswell Sisters.

They were yet another 1920s – 30s jazz stand-out who had classical backgrounds, having studied classical piano, cello, and violin respectively.

“We studied classical music . . . and were being prepared for the stage and a concert tour throughout the United States, but the saxophone got us,” Martha told the Shreveport Times in 1925.

The sisters’ older brother Clyde, also a classically trained musician, was the one who first got his sisters into jazz. He introduced them to cornetist Emmett Louis Hardy, who shaped the sisters’ knowledge of jazz harmony, syncopation and improvisation. Vet took up the banjo, Connie took up saxophone and Martha continued playing the piano. Hardy died of tuberculosis at age 22. Clyde died from flu at 18.

For your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week, here are the Boswell Sisters in a 1932 Vitaphone short.
Also heard, a little dig at ‘music experts’ involving band leader Abe Lyman. Warning, the song ‘Louisiana Waddle’ contains racist lyrics. Read more Boswell notes and see today’s Phantom Dancer play list below…


The trio played concerts and vaudeville in the early 1920s, gradually replacing their classical repertoire with jazz. They first recorded in 1925 and after arriving in Los Angeles in 1929 sang on radio shows and recorded film music.

You’ll hear a song from one of their 1930 Hollywood Continental Broadcasting Corporation transcriptions on The Phantom Dancer today.

They became nationally famous, then internationally famous, after they moved to New York City in 1930 with their own show over CBS.

They recorded for Brunswick from 1931-1935, recordings that are considered milestone in vocal jazz. Connee wrote the vocal arrangements, Glenn Miller wrote the band arrangements and engaged the best New York jazz musicians to accompany the sisters, including the Dorsey Brothers, Benny Goodman, Bunny Berigan, Fulton McGrath, Joe Venuti, Arthur Schutt, Eddie Lang, Joe Tarto, Manny Klein, Dick McDonough and Carl Kress. Connee also made more conventional solo records for Brunswick during the same period.

They had 20 hits in this time, appeared on film and experimental TV, toured Europe twice, and even made a recording released only in Australia. They influenced the Andrew Sisters in the US, the Trio Lescano in Italy, Allanovy Sestry in Czechoslovakia and the Harmony Sisters in Finland. Connie Boswell’s solo recordings were a major influence on Ella Fitzgerald.

Vet’s daughter and granddaughter published the book, The Boswell Legacy, in 2014.

Harry James and Arban’s – 3 October Phantom Dancer + ‘Leave It To Harry’ (1954)


If the 26 September show is anything to go by, the 3 October Phantom Dancer, one week before the annual 2SER Subscriber Drive, is going to be the best show ever.

This week you’ll Swing and Sway with Sammy Kaye and tune in for Part 5 of the Harry James aircheck series 1953-54. Indeed, the entire Vinyl Hour of The Phantom Dancer is devoted to trumpet band leaders on live radio: Louis Armstrong, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins and Dizzy Gillespie.

Your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV is presented by myself, Greg Poppleton, over radio station 107.3 2SER Sydney. I’ve been bringing you The Phantom Dancer since 1985.

You can now hear it live-streamed and online on Radio 2SER’s website: http://www.2ser.com/phantomdancer.

HARRY JAMES
Since we are up to Part 5 in our chronological review of radio airchecks by trumpeter Harry James, it is worth noting here that just like Fats Waller, discussed in last week’s Phantom Dancer play list notes, Harry James also had a classical background when learning his instrument.

Harry James was none for his great facility on the trumpet and his wonderful tone. Harry’s father was a circus band leader. He started teaching Harry trumpet when Harry was aged 10.  The lesson regime was that each day, he had to learn a page from the Arban’s book.

What’s the Arban’s book? It’s the instruction book for cornet, flugelhorn and trumpet written by the famous Joseph Jean-Baptiste Laurent Arban  before 1859.

Arban was a cornetist, conductor, composer, teacher and the first famed virtuoso of the cornet. He was influenced by Niccolò Paganini’s virtuosic technique on the violin and successfully proved that the cornet was a true solo instrument by developing virtuoso technique it.

Arban’s book consists of:  Introduction / First Studies / Playing Methods: Slurring or Legato Playing /  Scales / Ornaments / Advanced Studies / Tonguing / Phrasing: 150 Classic and Popular Melodies / 68 Duets for Two Cornets / 14 Characteristic Studies / Celebrated Fantasies and Airs Varies

See the full Phantom Dancer play list below.

Make sure you come back to this blog, Greg Poppleton’s Radio Lounge, every Tuesday, for the newest Phantom Dancer play list!
Thank you.

Fats Waller’s Classical Background – 19 September Phantom Dancer Radio Show Play List


If the 19 September Phantom Dancer radio show is anything to go by, the 26 September non-stop mix of swing and dance from live 1920s – 1960s radio and TV is going to be the best show ever.

This week you’ll hear Fats Waller, Benny Goodman and news on the European Crisis over WABC NY in 1938 which we didn’t get to hear on last week’s show. We ran out of time with so much good music.

There’s also a set of women bop singers including Sarah Vaughan and Jackie Kane, and tune in for Part 4 in the Harry James aircheck series 1948-51.

Your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV is presented by myself, Greg Poppleton, over radio station 107.3 2SER Sydney. I’ve been bringing you The Phantom Dancer since 1985.

You can now hear it live-streamed and online on Radio 2SER’s website: http://www.2ser.com/phantomdancer.

See the full play list below.

FATS WALLER

Fats Waller was a composer, pianist and entertainer. He wrote such jazz standards as Keeping Out of Mischief Now, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Honeysuckle Rose. You’ll hear him play his popular tune, The Joint is Jumpin’, on today’s Phantom Dancer on a live WABC NYC broadcast from 1938.

What’s little known about Fats Waller is the classic background that informed his unique jazz stride piano style.

Waller’s grandfather was an accomplished violinist. His mother, Adeline, was a church organist. She taught him to play organ, gave him his first lessons in classical music, and hired a tutor for him. His church musical director introduced him to the works of J.S. Bach.

1920s stride piano stars James P. Johnson and Willie ‘The Lion’ Smith later mentored Fats, teaching him stride piano style and introducing him to the works of impressionistic composers of the nineteenth century.

Enjoy!
