Here is a real favorite Edison Blue Amberol cylinder from my collection. From 1928, this is the hauntingly beautiful song "As We Sat Beneath The Maple On The Hill" recorded by Posey Rorer And The North Carolina Ramblers. This song has a very simple melody yet very moving, sentimental lyrics. It is the story of a couple in their later years looking fondly back in time to their younger years when they sat beneath a maple tree on a hill and the love they promised would never fade. Posey Rorer (1891-1936) was afflicted with badly clubbed feet but mastered the fiddle playing in several well known early country bands. Rorer's few Edison recordings sold poorly particularly his cylinder recordings and today are prized by collectors. The phonograph is one of my Edison Firesides with oak cygnet horn. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you enjoy as much I always have.
