Ideal 0511, "Fate (It Was Fate When I First Met You)", by Byron Gay (1922),
from the stage revue "Greenwich Village Follies". A lovely and haunting
tune that was recorded by Paul Whiteman and others. This piano roll
performance features organ-like sounds with a raggy piano obbligato and
seems an ungainly attempt at jazz. Unfortunately, the artist's name
on the box label is obscured.

Hit H-340, "Kiss Me Again", organ arragement; (C) 1915 by Victor Herbert.
The original setting of "Kiss Me Again" was the final waltz section of
a parody called "If I Were On the Stage" in Herbert's 1905 musical, "Mlle.
Modiste". The audience so loved it that Herbert penned new lyrics
for subsequent performances.
