I'm searching for early recordings (1905-1935 or so) of the song "Low Bridge Everybody Down," written in 1905 by Thomas S. Allen and copyrighted in 1912 (ms. form) and 1913 (sheet music form) by the FB Haviland Publishing Company.
Specifically, I'm interested in hearing any and all of the following:
* Peerless Quartet, recorded 12/6/1912 (Columbia A1296)
* Harmony Male Quartette (aka Peerless Quartet), 1912 or 1913, which may be the same recording as above (Harmony A1296)
* Vernon Dalhart, recorded electronically 1/16/29 (Columbia 15378-D)
* "Mack Allen" (alias for Vernon Dalhart) recorded acoustically 1/21/29 (Harmony 831-H, also on Velvet Tone and Viva)
* Frank Crumit, recorded 1/25/29, unreleased? (Victor)
I do have copies of the Billy Murray (1912) and Edward Meeker (1913) recordings.
Thank you for any help!
