Fletcher Henderson And His Club Alabam Orchestra - Vocalion 14800 (1924)

Stopped at a small antique store in Micanopy, FL and asked the lady if she happened to have any 78s. She told me to follow her and then proceeded to walk right out the front door and onto the porch. She pulled back a blue tarp which was covering a plastic storage tub full of 78s. She explained that the tarp was placed over them because there had been a freeze a few days before. Geez.

I then flipped the first record and apparently disturbed about 30 sleeping tree frogs causing them to jump all over the place. Catching my breath and brushing frogs off my arm (yuck), I went for the first of two brown wax discs (easy to spot) and slid this one out. It was the driving force that kept me flipping through frogs.
