Crankin' It Up: Really, Really Old!

This Climax Record dates back to the very early 1900's, and it's a good one.  What's really neat is that the age of the record gives us a glimpse of how this song would have been performed by folks when it was first published.  Samuel Siegel, the Mandolinist was born in 1875, and lived until 1948.  That means of course, that he learned this song from musicians that played it when it was first published.
