The audio curator at Edison National Historic Site rummages through the archives of the legendary Edison Laboratory of West Orange, New Jersey. Tune in for Edison cylinder and disc record rarities, many not heard since "the old man" himself stashed them away, featuring: Tin Pan Alley pop songs, ragtime, vaudeville comedy sketches, flapper dance bands, old-time country tunes, historic classical music, laboratory experiments and other artifacts - all dating from 1888 through 1929.

Thank goodness the archives are back! Now I can listen to this great music (and some not-so-great, but historically interesting music) at my leisure.

I think that Sweet Georgia Brown (Tennesse Happy Boys) is a Harry Reser Group, not Nathan Glantz.
According to the Harry Reser discography, the name Nathan Glantz is only credited to those titles issued on Homochord.
All the best

The name listed in the Edison recording studio cashbooks for June 11, 1925, matrix 10428 is "Glantz Orchestra".

I Love The Tennesee Happy Boys. I have some of there stuff on DD. I also like Earl Oliver. I have his Columbia Records. I have some sax stuff on DD. Maybe you've heard of The Wiedoeft-Wadsworth Quartet.
