The New DESOR correction-sheets


Complicated Correction-sheets

DEMS 08/3-35

I'm surprised not to find the description of neither 9068j nor k on Correction-Sheet 1088.
One can of course refer to Correction-Sheet 1068 for Cotton Tail, former 7305xa and now 9068v to session 7305 for the original Carnegie Blues, former 7305b an now 6968j, but is that clear enough?
Klaus Götting

I agree. It would have been much better if these two descriptions would have been added to the session 9068 on Correction-sheet 1088. I made for each of those two selections a note on sheet 1088, where to go to find the description of the structure.

The New DESOR corrections


DEMS 08/3-37

We remind you that these corrections are merely suggestions. They are not (yet) accepted by the authors of the New DESOR. Unsigned suggestions were brought in by Hoefsmit.
DEMS

Page 909. I Don’t Know Why I Love You So. 3602a and 3602b both have an intro by DE of 4 bars. The first bar of 3602a is missing on CBS88137, but on Classics 659 and Sony&BMG 88697302362 the intro is complete.

Pages 562 and 949. Session 7011, 6Feb70. Bill Egan has published several interesting newspaper clips on <
http://www.florencemills.com/duke_ellington_australia_1970.htm>.
One of these clips covered the interview of 6Feb70. It was printed in the Sydney Morning Herald of 7Feb and it read: “Today husband and wife Anne Deveson (2GB) and Ellis Blain (ABC) will do a joint interview with Duke Ellington. Tonight at 6.35, a half-hour version will be heard in Miss Deveson’s Newsmakers program on 2GB. On Tuesday, an hour-long version will be in Ellis Blain’s Guest on 2BL.”
In the DEMS files the names were spelled as Mrs and Mr Anne Daverson and Ellis Blaine. In the New DESOR the names are Anne Jefferson and Ellis Blaine, but now we have the correct names. The date should not be corrected however from 6 to 7Feb70. This is taken from our notes: “
In Joe Igo's files the recording date is February 7, 1970 but that is wrong. Very clearly at the start of the interview the date is confirmed: ‘This was made on the 6th of February 1970.’ Early in the interview we hear: ‘Duke Ellington arrived in Sydney today for a concert at the stadium tomorrow night.’ This answers a lot of questions. At the end of the interview somebody was hammering on the door. Duke had to come for the tele-recording. This places the interview ahead of the ABC telecast ‘The Duke Ellington Special’ New DESOR 7010.”

Page 1036. Moonlight Fiesta. 3502c has no intro by Duke like 3502b has.

Page 1439. Edie Adams, who was born on 16Apr27 died on 15oct08.

Page 1460. The first name of Freedman is spelled WOOLF and not WULF. That’s how he signed his e-mail to me.
