A new version of Tin Roof Blues, recorded acoustically to wax cylinder in 2008, by Vulcan Cylinder Records.

The Vulcan Cylinder Record Company has released a new arrangement of that old favourite of the New Orleans Jazz genre – Tin Roof Blues.  Written in 1928 by members of the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, this is one of the best known, and most often played, of the genre.

This tune was recorded acoustically, directly to wax cylinder, at the 2008 annual conference of the City of London Phonograph and Gramophone Society (CLPGS).  Duncan Miller, of Vulcan Records, is probably the world’s leading exponent of live acoustic recording in the wax medium, and this lively number is one more tribute to his knowledge and skill in this area.
