louis armstrongAmoeba Music has painstakingly remastered thousands of tracks from jazz genius Louis Armstrong’s vast catalog, and you can now download them all at’s Vinyl Vaults!

Here is Louis as you’ve never heard him. More than 600 sides have been expertly remastered from pristine original 78s that sound amazing—plus thousands of hard-to-find and undiscovered songs remastered from out-of-print and obscure vinyl sources not found elsewhere digitally!

Check out our beautifully restored rare Louis versions of “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Just A Gigolo” and many others. We have also remastered dozens of live shows, including the previously legendary, previously unheard “Live at Kitsilano High School” show from Vancouver in 1952—plus hundreds of lost radio and TV performances for your listening pleasure.

Here’s an example of the remastering we’ve done for these Louis Armstrong tracks on the song “Static Strut” from the original Vocalion 78 released in 1926. Hear the song change from the original to the Amoeba-remastered version at the 20-second mark.

Watch this performance below of Louis Armstrong live in Copenhagen in 1934 for another example of our remastering. Audio restoration begins at the 51-second mark. Songs include “I Cover the Waterfront” and “Dinah.”

Download Classical Music's Greatest Hits

Posted by Rubin Meisel, March 6, 2014 04:43pm | Post a Comment

Explore Classical MusicOn the surface, Classical music and downloading is a bit of a mismatch. The chance of someone downloading Wagner’s four and a half hour opera, Parsifal, or Bach’s three hour choral masterpiece, St. Matthew Passion, to play on their iPad is rather remote. But there is a seemingly brisk business in downloading popular classical "Greatest Hits." The nomenclature of the potential buyer is different than that of a seasoned Classical aficionado (song versus composition piece for instance). Another challenge is the novice buyer may know what the piece (song) sounds like, but does not know the name of the composer. The novice buyer will probably know the piece from a movie, a commercial, video game or even a cartoon. Downloads generally give you the flexibility of sampling and then downloading the track you want or the entire piece. Explore our full catalog of Classical music downloads, which are 20% off in March with promo code DLSALE.

Here is a short list of some of the most popular Classical pieces being downloaded and some of the more accessible endeavors with which they are associated:

Starting with a stately piano and acoustic jangle, “Weight” opens Mikal Cronin’s excellent MCII on a classy note. Those Rubber Soul-style harmonies and crunching guitars at the chorus don’t hurt, either. This one’s a free download. (From the album MCII)
