But as long as songs are sung, Bert Williams will be remembered as the humble comedian from the British West Indies who taught millions of Americans to laugh and kings to Cake Walk. Columbia Records proudly presents an album of eight songs re-recorded from the old masters. World-famous for his homey philosophy and gentle humor. These songs which he had written to order for himself, reflected and magnified the spirit of the post-war erea in American life. Prohibition was one of his favorite themes. The Moon Shines on the Moonsine and Everybody Wants a Key to My Cellar were Bert Williams hits to kid the prohibitionists of that day. How These Records Were Made in a recording session sometime in the early Twenties. At the small end of the recording horn was a French plate glass diaphragm to which was attached a stylus lever supporting a recording jewel. This cut the vibrations of Bert's voice into a disc of soft wax previously heated so that it would take clear impressions of the lateral movements of the cutting jewel. These songs have been re-recorded from the original masters were unearthed in the files of the Columbia Recording corporation.The four 78s are in excellent condition.SHIPS FOR $30 Awesome set, appeals to collectors of vintage records and Black Americana, Black Memorabila.
