    No. 9384, "Good Old Songs," by the Edison Male Quartette, is a medley of songs that will meet with a cordial reception if for no other reason than the fact that it has been a long time since this group of artists have made a Record containing more than one song.   The Record includes, "Twinkling Stars Are Laughing, Love" (Ordway); "When I Saw Sweet Nellie Home" (Fletcher); "Would I Were Thee" (Bossetti), and "There's Music in the Air" (Root).   This combination will make a good seller.   The singers are unaccompanied.
