Ristic

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
Musician, sound engineer and vintage jazz enthusiast, John R.T. Davies was responsible for the Ristic issues. These were high-quality transfers ("dubs") from extremely rare 1920s Jazz and Blues originals. Some Ristics were 45rpm, 10", with two tracks each side (It is obvious in the listing below which those are) .
All were pressed in vinyl and only 99 copies (at most) of each issue were produced. Higher numbers will have been allocated to LP issues, I understand.
The name "Ristic" was John R.T's nickname as a youngster, I believe.

 

Please e-mail me if you can help me fill in any of the gaps.
