It was most interesting to hear the NPR spot  about the 100th anniversary 
of the Polk Miller and the Old South Quartette  session at the Edison Studio 
November 13 , 1909.  The definitive Blue  Amberol cylinder discography by 
Alan Sutton ( Mainspring Press 2005 ) shows the  session took place in the 
Edison Studios in NY City on the above date and that  this information was 
obtained from studio documents and the Edison cash books .  

In particular it was a delight to hear a snippet of Jerusalem Mourning  
which is a two minute wax record ; recorded during the November 13 session ;  
copies of which are extra rare . Thanks to Ken Flaherty .
