"Dad" Williams - Brunswick 306
"Dad" Williams / Brunswick 306
The Dutchman`s Serenade / Money Musk
recorded January 30, 1929 in New York City
This is the only record this man made by himself, although he did record with H.M. Barnes & His Blue Ridge Ramblers. Obviously, "Dad" is a nickname on the label, his real name was Frank E. Williams. That is really all I know about the artist. The Dutchman`s Serenade is a German dialect skit with music mixed in. This is pretty late for this type of side to be released, although this type stuff had been pretty popular comedy from about 1915 through 1925-ish. Money Musk is of course the old-time fiddle tune, and very capably played here. Happy downloading!
