I Wish I Had A Girl

I sent an email about this for the Year 1907, but I see you have it postedhere. Where is "Meet Me Tonight In Dreamland"? One of my grandfather's favorite songs

It was a hit in Nov 1910. If you had typed "Dreamland" into the search box (top right of this page) it would have found it for you

The Billy Murray & American Quartet recording issued on Victor 16483 is the one that charted at # 1. Murray also recorded the song as a solo issued on Edison Amberol 450 and this is the one that charted at # 3. This is per Pop Memeorie 1890-1954 by Joel Whitburn.

As we said, the Bullfrog listing clearly shows two entries. We don't have the Whitburn book available, however we have changed the data in the way you suggest.

8 Casey Jones

This should be Billy Murray & The American Quartet as it is on the record lable.

There is a seperate Billboard entry for Billy Murray & American Quartet that reached number 3 starting in Jul 1910 (5 weeks).

So the Billboard listing says that's a different record.
