This cylinder is in good condition, has great sound for a 1912 recording. This is the same song that Jolson's character as a child sings in The Jazz Singer. I never knew the name of it.

Another fun one. Billy Murray and the Heidelberg Quintet - Waiting for the Robert E. Lee (1912).

I've loved that song for years, but I know it through the more whimsical Collins & Harlan version.
