Still on that Edison kick, I'll go back to a 1904 reissue of a song originally from 1899 for an old Smokey, Smokey Mokes by The Peerless Orchestra

And I'll go back to another Smokey...Smokey Joe, that is and a Leiber & Stoller classic! :wink:

Good one, I'll elaborate on the Robins with "The Roses, The Robins, And You" by Harvey Hindermeyer & Donald Chalmers and yet another 1912 Edison selection.

My favorite version of Ella performing a classic...

Ella Fitzgerald - Robbin's Nest



Of course, she tried a slower tack with the Count here...3 times! :shock:

And I'll match that selection word for word with some earlier "Birds of a Feather" by Harry Radermans Jazz Orchestra

Could down south be referring to somewhere "Down Among The Sleepy Hills of Tenessee" by Kaplan's Melodists, disc 51161?

Or maybe you'd prefer that same song title with vocals by Robert Denning and Jack Holt, disc 51174
