(November 11, 2017): John McCormack – There’s A Long, Long Trail

From the 1917 single side 78 rpm, There’s A Long, Long Trail.  A WWI staple for this old Armistice Day.  Stoddard King and Alonzo Elliott, both seniors at Yale, wrote the tune in 1913. Note the price on the lable for this single song, “Price $1”.  A hundred years later, the standard digital price is a penny less – for just the music alone. Without a physical artefact, it remains to be seen if they will survive a Century.
