Here is "My SUMURUN GIRL" played by Fred Van Eps on Edison Blue Amberol cylinder#1549.
Played on my Edison Phonograph model "Standart".
Hi Peter !
I have also many rec. of Van Eps, Vess Ossman, Tarrant Bailet jr, old 78's and Cylinders to share, if i have time, i can put some others recordings on this group, i think, it is very interesting to know how they was playing exactly on their banjos, with or without a band.
Speed of cylinders is about 160 r.p.m. by minute, i can have the exact tempo, by turning the speed control screw, and i find sometimes that they was playing very fast !!!!!!!But some tunes are also played at slow tempo. I will put one one my best tune from Vess L. Ossman next, he was playing in slow tempo, but it is a surprise !
