Performed by Frank C. Stanley

Announcement "When You Know You're Not Forgotten by the Girl You Can't Forget, sung by Frank C. Stanley.  Edison record."
 

An enjoyable song with a catchy melody, and a title almost as long as the recording.   Too long, in fact, to be stamped completely around the record's edge – a distinction also held by the cylinder with perhaps the longest title (beating this month's feature by 3 syllables): The August 1999 Cylinder of the Month, Ev'ry Little Bit, Added to What You've Got, Makes Just a Little Bit More.

    No. 9544, "When You Know You're Not Forgotten by the Girl You Can't Forget," by Frank C. Stanley, is a waltz song of exceptional interest by Fred Helf (music) and Ed. Gardenier (words).   The pretty sentiment in the story is enhanced by a musical setting full of character.   Mr. Stanley's fine baritone voice is heard to splendid advantage.   The Record is made with orchestra accompaniment.
