Bruz Fletcher's most known 78



above: "The Prairie" is the same recording as "The Wide Open Spaces,"
and was pressed (not logically) on the flip side of L-0464.
I understand "Haskell" was also pressed at HO-106.
above right, autographed copy of L-0464

Frances Faye made "Drunk With Love" her signature song. See This Link for so much more.




 Above right: "It" is same as "Peter Lillie Daisy"

with L-305, L-306, L-307

Two tracks later released on "Party" record labels
Note, no name given. "Society Lady" was Mrs Haskell,
though an alternate recording version; and Haskell changed to Haskill.
I'm told they are quite inferior recordings


Note: I do not by any means own all of these, labels scans were graciously provided by Tyler Alpern

Finally, from my collection, a very rare 1950's LP acetate,
with an alternate version of 'Drunk With Love"

If you have read this far, then you will want this CD....
