Arthur Collins specialized in what was then called coon songs, popular African-American dialect numbers associated with vaudeville and minstrel shows. selective discography:
"Every Darky Had A Raglan On"
"Coon, Coon, Coon"
"All Coons Look Alike To Me"
"A Possum Supper At The Darktown Church"
"Mammy Blossom's possum Party
"Darktown Strutters' Ball"
What a dick.

@j-No: I get it, but since we are making judgments across 100-year distances, how will African-American professionals 100 years from now look at hip-hop culture? Any ideas? I know some right now today that call it postmodern minstrel-show material.

Fun fact: Berchtesgadener Land is a region in the way far southern tip of Bavaria, by the Austrian border. It's really mountainy and scenic, and Germans have always seen it as one of their most romantic/scenic areas.
The Nazi leaders later had a lot of their personal retreats there, most of all Hitler's "Berghof" mountain retreat/resort. I got schlepped there on a bus once while really touring Austria. (It's right on the Germany-Austria border practically.) Creepy but interesting.

The name of the band on the Berchtesgadener tune is "Bavarian Highland Zither Trio"

Hi! Do you have "Flanagan's Mother In Law" by Steve Porter? I've only heard a very crusty cylinder version, but I really love that record! The jokes are funny, and the song at the end kicks ass!
