    No. 9236, "Mandy and Her Man," by Ada Jones and Len Spencer, is an exceptionally well put together vaudeville [race] sketch and shows Miss Jones and Mr. Spencer at their best.   The characteristic dialogue and comic situations have never been excelled, which together with the singing and orchestra embellishments make this Record a great entertainer.   The [race] song, "On Yo' Way," sung by Miss Jones, with orchestra accompaniment, is a feature of the Record.
— February 1906 Edison Phonograph Monthly [announcing the March records]
