Douglas Williams Four - Victor 21695 (1928) / Alabama Four - Victor 21136 (1927)

I came across this 78 after answering an ad about a Victrola full of Roy Acuff / Red Foley records. It was tucked nice and neat near the bottom in what looked to be the original sleeve. I also found an Alabama Four which made the haul that much sweeter.

The Victrola now sits in my living room, which is quickly looking more and more like a phonograph museum. (I'm not a collector of phonographs...they are just necessary to get to the wax)

By the way, the lady sold her Victrola and records so she could buy a dog. May I suggest the name Nipper?
