A great tune from a great player of 120 years ago !!
Heard of him, but never heard him before. Amazing player.
Fine recording! It took me a while to figure out there was a flute/piccolo playing along with him. I thought it was some sort of overtone or a recording anomaly...
There are a few of Mr. Brooks recordings out there. Here's "King Cotton March" by Sousa.
Ah poop. The file exceeds the 5MB limit...
Thanks for posting this, Ian. Was any "processing" done to the recording? The presence of the banjo is outstanding. Unlike the sound of the banjo on many old records this sounds like a human being playing the banjo.
If you look at the Youtube version, it is a Tim Gracyk video. He's been at it for a long time...does excellent processing.
