Description of Product

Edith North Johnson accompanied by probably herself on piano, plus rhythm guitar on the A side. This is a Paramount test pressing of issue 13032 from an October 1929 Grafton, WI recording session that occurred near the tail end of a series of Charley Patton sessions (“Mean Black Moan” by Patton, matrix L77 directly follows this session in the matrix series). Both sides are take 2. Plays well with a 4.0-mil stylus, no distortion, no visible wear. Has slight graininess at the edge that doesn’t have much effect on the sound. Side A has a small pit in the last minute that clicks 5 times, and a larger pit right at the end that pops for the last 8 grooves of music but tracks fine.  There are also a few other small pits and pressing dimples that have negligible effect on play. Both sides get noisy in the right channel near the end, but left channel plays fine. This one has never been offered on eBay, or here on Venerable as far as I know. MP3 available on request. This record is from the personal collection of radio personality and music historian Barret “Dr. Demento” Hansen, who is starting to downsize portions of his collection.
