Music of 9111

thank you for providing this information!

21 I Want a Girl Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad

This should be Walter Van Brunt & American Quartet as it is on the record lable. This entry and several others I have placed is this session are cases where multiple artists are credited equally on the record lable, and thus should be credited equally here.

Thanks again for all your great info

The artist listing on this site are often modified from what was on a particular label. In this case the change is, we agree, questionable but the decision was to assign the song to Walter Van Brunt alone.

12 Come Josephine in My Flying Machine

This should be Ada Jones, Billy Murray & American Quartet as it is on the label.

We've changed the artist entry to "Ada Jones & Billy Murray", that best matches the requirements of the site.

1911

Dear sirs, we are 100 years in Pub business this year. Our children are the4th generation. We intend having celebrations in July, To mark the occassion I would like to get some of the music from this era. It looks very interesting. Looking forward to a reply. Oonagh Fitzmaurice.

On this site we list the music that was popular 100 years ago but we don't have any music to download. You could try looking for some of these tracks in iTunes or Amazon

I shed tears,but tears of joy when I read the title of these songs.Tears inthe first sense because many of these good human race are now beyond the grave:now that it is 100years ago....and tears of joy because their works and spirits in another body live on.SoI think it is better therefore to live in CHRIST JESUS and forsake our sins and die in HIM:JESUS CHRIST....I like this page
