Does it sound better?

by Barb Wascher

I'm looking forward to receiving my copy, especially since Rob Bamberger dropped a very broad hint during his radio program that the Tiger Rag runoff groove was included in Mr. Benson's restoration. Will we hear "It SOUNDS better!" with unmistakable clarity after he's wrought his magic?

And if we do, will Mr. Sager address a few questions that have occurred (at least to me) about this recording, including: a) Sounds better than what? b) Who's Bix talking to, anyway? and c) Why did the Gennett engineer keep recording after the band finished playing?

Of course I have my own little theories, but I'll wait to see what the experts have to say. Given the superb work this team has done on previous projects, I'm quite sure all the tracks will sound better than they ever have before, for which I'm most grateful.
