Anthology:The Original King Of Pop-Henry Burr

Burr’s career lasted from 1903 to 1928. He sang ballads and what are considered now “The good old songs.”  It’s estimated that Burr was part of five thousand recordings from cylinders to shellac. This collection has twenty-seven tracks and includes some of his collabarations.

Highlights include: “The Holy City” (1903), “Shine On Harvest Moon” w/Frank C. Stanley, “I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now”, “What Do You Mean, You Didn’t Want To Do It” w/Ada Jones, “M-O-T-H-E-R” and “Are You Lonesome Tonight.”

Other artists joining Burr are The Peerless Quartet, Albert Campbell, Will Oakland, The Sterling Trio and Billy Murray.


About vintage45

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
