Al Jolson

Hi, maybe you can help me out?

I'm looking for the "b side" from an Al +Jolson 78. The song is titled: My Gal (not to be confised with my gal sal) and is on the flip side of +the original version of his hit Swannee. My parents have this 78 in the victrolla however they are 1,500 miles away. I cannot find this tune on line and have tried archive.org etc with no luck. It's a beautiful tune that would be a hit today if recorded again and by far my favorite recording by Al, +and he has a lot !

I will have it re-recorded and submitt it. Just can't believe I can't find it on the Internet. Not sure, but I think it was Brunswick records.

Thank you for your help! Respectfully, James

The Bullfrog list has "Swanee" as Columbia 2884

We, of course, only have chart listings and can only tell you the song was never a hit
