The Rhythm Wreckers

This small band was formed in LA, California for a few record dates in 1937/8 and may well have owed a debt to band leader and drummer Ben Pollack. Playing an interesting mixture of early nation music, blues and energetic jazz, their staff included Muggsy Spanier (cornet), Ben Kantor (clarinet), Garry McAdams (acoustic guitar), Whitey McPherson (vocals), and either Pollack or Graham Stevenson (drums). Among the edges they slice are ‘By no means No Mo’ Blues’, ‘Blue Yodel No. 2’, also called ‘My Lovin’ Gal Lucille’, and ‘St. Louis Blues’. On another program, whereon Pollack’s existence turns into speculative, they documented ‘Red Going Music Manufacturer’ and ‘Blue Yodel No. 1’. McPherson was once again on hand which time the music group included the metal acoustic guitar of Danny Stewart. Their third day brought ‘Blue Yodel No. 3’, ‘Desert Blues’, also called ‘Blowing wind Swept Desert’, and ‘Sept In The Rainfall’. The vocalist around the last name is usually Pauline Byron (or Byrne). The group’s last known record day, from which arrived ‘Brakeman Blues’ and ‘Aged Fashioned Like’, is a lot more spottily archived. Aside from McPherson the just known musician around the session is usually Irving Fazola, the reputed clarinet player.
