Brud's Musical Picks in 1912
Being the swinging fella that he was Brud purchased a Victrola around 1912. He had quite a collection of waltz's and foxtrot's to keep the Moran's and their friends singing and dancing. I came across an old envelope dated October 1912 that he used to jot down a few new musical titles, perhaps he was hoping to add them to his record collection.
The only title that was familiar to me was "Oh You Beautiful Doll" which was published in 1911. It's actually a very unique piece of music in that it's one of the first songs that uses a 12 bar opening. Words by Seymour Brown and music by Nat D. Ayer.
