National Prohibition had just gone into effect, and the country’s top singers, like Bert Williams, Van and Schenck, and Nora Bayes, lamented the demise of their old friend alcohol. This is the first volume of Archeophone Records’ celebrated Phonographic Yearbook series, and it’s now available in a beautiful second edition, with three bonus tracks, an expanded booklet, improved sound, and the high standards listeners have come to expect from the leader in acoustic-era reissues.
