This month: An early recording (perhaps the earliest) of the classic Take Me Out to the Ball Game.
|Company||Edison's National Phonograph Company|
|Title||Take Me Out to the Ball Game|
|Performed by||Edward Meeker|
|Announcement||"Take Me Out to the Ball Game, sung by Edward Meeker. Edison record."|
On the cylinder the song is labelled as a "waltz song" which, of course, it is although at first glance it seems a bit odd to think of Take Me Out to the Ball Game as a waltz.
