Bert Williams Oh! Lawdy (Something's Done Got Between Ebecaneezer And Me) / Bring Back Those Wonderful Days
This 78 from 1919 has several scratches but still plays well and has not been destroyed by early Victrolas like so many 78s from this era.
Bert Williams was best known as a stage performer and vaudeville pioneer. This recording was made just 3 short years before his untimely death after collapsing on a stage in Detroit and was the first record made by him in 1919. He left an amazing legacy of sound in his recordings from 1901 to 1922. Booker T. Washington claimed that Bert Williams did more for his race by singing and acting than Washington did in his books.
