Authentic Django autograph?

Post by Grooves »

Helly everyone!

I just picked up two more Django 78s for the collection. What's really cool is that one is signed! :shock:

Can anyone confirm whether or not this is a genuine Django Reinhardt signature?
Thanx in advance!

I'm afraid that is not Django's signature. :(

Bummer :(

The "Reinhardt" part looked similar to signatures I've found of him on google, like the one below, but it was a long shot...

I got this record cheap, and it's amazing, so I'm still happy :)

Although Django's signature did vary, there were several consistent features and this one does not have any of them, except of course that is a bit "scruffy". :roll: Also, since this was recorded only shortly before he died, it is more than likely Django never even saw a copy let alone sign one.

Thanx for the info Teddy.
It's about the music anyways, but it sure would have been cool. I didn't even notice it at first, until the seller pointed it out to me. I was just happy with another Django record :D
