Tempo Records originally issued this iconic recording of "Sweet Georgia Brown" in 1947, performed by the great (if now little-remembered, aside from this one signature tune) Brother Bones, a whistling, bones-playing novelty recording artist from Montgomery, Alabama. The original pressing was backed with "Margie," a somewhat forgettable whistling number. But when the Harlem Globetrotters adopted "Sweet Georgia Brown" as their official theme song in 1952, Tempo reissued the record, switching out "Margie" for an interview with Globetrotters manager Abe Saperstein and adding an oversized photo-pictorial label to the B-side. The original pressing is common, but this reissue is something of a rarity, and particularly hard to find with the label intact and in fresh condition. This a rather nice example. 10", 78-rpm vinyl disc in unprinted kraft paper sleeve. Surface scratches and a bit of dullness to vinyl, but free of cracks and with both labels fresh and intact; Very Good and fully playable. Bookseller Inventory #
