Harry Lauder revisited

A while ago, I posted a bunch of recordings by Sir Harry Lauder, in commemoration of his birthday. Well, while I was digging through the racks of 78s, I happened upon a bunch MORE of Sir Harry's output, even some better copies of what I had posted before! So, in the spirit of a good Scotsman, I have put all 18 sides into an archive, and am posting it to share with all you fine people.

Here's the list of what's on there, from the early purple label recordings to the later electricals:

Queen Among the Heather
It's Nice to Get Up in the Mornin' But it's Nicer to Lie in Bed
From the North South East and West
I Think I'll Get Wed in the Summer
There Is Somebody Waiting For Me
The Bounding Bounder
I've Something in the Bottle
Same as His Father Was Before Him
Roamin' in the Gloamin'
Wee Hoose 'Mang the Heather
Bella the Belle o' Dunoon
The Sunshine of a Bonnie Lassie's Smile
It's A Fine Thing to Sing
Saturday Night
Roamin' In The Gloamin' (Electrical)
I Love A Lassie (Electrical)
Loch Lomond (Electrical)
Scotch Memories (Electrical)

These are sorted (no track numbers) by catalog number on the disc, so you can kind of follow the historical flow of the works. All are from 12" VIctor 78s except for "Queen Among the Heather" which is from a 10" disc. I know I have more 10" Harry Lauder discs, so I'll add them in when I find them...

So, while I labor away at this project, enjoy this compilation of Sir Harry Lauder.

I'm afraid I get a dead link when I click to try to listen to the selection of Harry Lauder songs... :=(
