Here is a temporary fix. The Spiegle interview is provided here. In the meantime, I will try to solve the problem.

1. What did Spiegle mean with the phrase, "Jean Goldkette wasn't his proper name, I am sure"  I have seen Jean John Goldkette or John Jean Goldkette, I can't remember which order. Is that what Spiegle meant? Jean was born in Greece. I speculate that Jean's mother spoke French to her son.

2. Did Fuzzy Farrar play with the California Ramblers before he played with Goldkette? I looked up discographies of the California Ramblers and did not find any recording with Fuzzy. Of course, Fuzzy may have played with the CR without ever recording with them or one of the bands within the band. My understanding is that Fuzzy was with the Scranton Sirens before joining Goldkette.

3. Spiegle tells that he took Tommy Dorsey's place. I don't think so. My understanding is that Russ Morgan took Tommy Dorsey's place and that Spiegle took Morgan's place when Morgan was promoted to arranger.

4. Was Fud Livingston a member of the Goldkette band and was Jimmy Dorsey a replacement for Fud? I doubt it.

More later.

Spiegle mentions that the Goldkette band played two senior balls at Notre Dame. I could only find one, but I may have missed the other. The one I know about is from May 14, 1926. The band played the Senior Ball at the fabulous Palais Royale Building in South Bend IN. Get a load at some images of the Palais Royale.





The Palais Royale was built in 1922 and restored in 2001.

Albert

"Palais Royale" with an "e" at the end is grammatically incorrect. Palais is a masculine name and thus Palais Royal would be the correct spelling. Note that the palace in Paris originally called Palais-Cardinal, built in the 17th century and the personal residence of Cardinal Richelieu, was renamed "Palais-Royal" when Richelieu died and the palace became the property of Louis XIII. Magnificent palace.
