I posted a simple quiz on the Facebook site, quickly answered, so here is the one for the real fans, yet to be answered there after a week online! Of the Victor, Columbia, Brunswick and Decca recordings by Al Jolson .... which one was the longest track?
I'm gonna guess it was the Columbia "Down Where The Swanee River Flows."
The Swanee River flowed down for 3:30, making it the longest Columbia, but not the longest track!
A recorded song on a record, one song, start to finish. Not from a movie or radio performance.
Lovely song. Great shame Jolson didn't sing it in later years.
Okay. Just thought I had been missing something.
And you're right. The Victor Brass Band Ephraham Jones and the Decca Cantor n The Sabbath are both 3.33.
But the Columbia Pray For Sunshine is 3:34
Is that the one?
Afraid not .... here is a little hint -- it is a seasonal song
I'm stumped. Both April Showers aren't even in contention - 3:06 and 3:05 and In Sweet September is only 2:57. Maybe I've missed something?
