Enjoy this classic song of love sung by the great baritone J. W. Myers.   Typical of the period, this recording carries the brash sound of a copy produced by pantograph from a loud 5" diameter master.   See the May 2002 Cylinder of Month for another selection sung by Myers.

 Congratulations Joy and C.J.!
