Bio


Billy Murray (1877-1954) was probably the most popular recording artist of the acoustic era. Edison released Murray cylinders in 1903. Murray started recording fairly regularly at that time, first for Edison, and then for Columbia and Victor. Murray's voice was well suited for acoustic recording. He sounded natural while singing loudly into the recording horn used in the acoustic recording process. When electrical recording became the standard in 1925, Murray had to adjust. He had to sing more quietly to avoid overdriving the microphones and amplifiers. The public's tastes in music were also changing (largely due to the influence of jazz), and Murray's popularity declined rapidly at this point.
In the thirties, Murray recorded only sporadically. He performed on radio, and provided voices for a couple of cartoons. In the forties, he performed on the National Barn Dance radio show. He made his last record in 1943 for the Victor Bluebird label.

 

 

This CD includes many of Billy Murrayís early recordings made during the Ragtime Era . The period covered by this CD is 1909 to 1911. He is joined by Ada Jones and The American Quartet on several tracks.
