I noticed this Berliner's record on ebay and just thought it was such an intriguing and very cool title !

(Hopefully it isn't about anything too horrible ....)

The funniest title I own might be "Celery Stalks at Midnight," on a red label Columbia, rivaled by "The Night that She Cried In My Beer," or maybe "Intoxicated Rat" by Fairley Holden and his Six Ice Cold Papas.

The coolest title? Don't know. They're all cool to me. :D

I recently acquired a Spanish Odeon record of c.1930 by a well known theatre actress of the time
Herein are the data taken from my database:
CATALINA BARCENA SPK — solo para mujeres -- reflexiones sobre el amor conyugal ½ -- recitado (g martinez sierra) — od 184168 vttc (4999 25cm s) — Mx. so 6128 (w) & 6129 (w)
It's a two-sided speech kind of Pro-feminist, but in lighter vein, you know.... With humour. A speech for married women, who are them all 'in the know' and Catalina talks openly to that women club...
Title translates into FOR WOMEN ONLY. REFLECTIONS ABOUT MARRIED LOVE

VanEpsFan1914 - Celery Stalks at Midnight is a great piece or music, a favorite of mine!
FYI, I am looking for Intoxicated Rat by the Dixon Brothers.

I made a quick search for the Anarchist disc, but did not find audio for it. Does anyone know of a link to hear it?
