Vaudeville Favorite - ENCORE 2 EDITION

(RECORDED 1920-1923)

 

 

 

 

Aileen Stanley Encore 2 presents some of her 1st recordings and
includes recordings that are more blues and jazz oriented.

Scarce recordings from Ok, Edison, Pathť and Vocalion labels are included in this CD release.

The version of My Man recorded on Ok is completely different than the well known version. It is a more cheerful and upbeat version.
We have not heard this version recorded by any other artist.

Our filtering process preserves the original sound and significantly
reduces surface noise and other imperfections in the original source material.

 

 

Aileen Stanley (1897 - 24 March 1982) was popular on records and in vaudeville.
Her stage appearances billed her as "The Phonograph Girl" and "The Girl With The Personality".
This CD release includes most of her electrically recorded discs from the mid 1920ís through the early 1930ís.
Her great personality and jazz style comes through very clearly in these recordings.

Stanley was born as Maude Elsie Aileen Muggeridge in
Chicago, Illinois. In her childhood, with the urging of her widowed mother,
she and her older brother Stanley sang and danced in
vaudeville as Stanley and Aileen.
After her brother left the act she started performing solo, forming her stage name by reversing the name of the old family billing.

Stanley performed on vaudeville and in
cabarets. In 1920 she made a hit in New York City in the review show "Silks And Satins".
She made the first of her numerous
recordings the same year.
Throughout the 1920s she would record prolifically.
The majority of her records were for the
Victor Talking Machine Company, but she also recorded with other record labels with recording studios in the New York City area.
They included
Edison, Pathe, Okeh, Brunswick, Vocalion, Gennett and others. Many of her records sold well at the time.

Stanley was said to have invested heavily in the
stock market, and was one of the many who lost most of their money in the Stock Market Crash of 1929.
About 1931 she moved to
London, where she made more records for HMV from 1934 through 1937.
In her later years she worked as a singing teacher and vocal coach.

Aileen Stanley died in
Los Angeles, California
