78-RPM Recording of The Original Piano Trio
By Wayne Stahnke

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMDigest --

I have heard it rumored that The Original Piano Trio, which consisted
of Edgar Fairchild, Herbert Clair, and George Dilworth, made at least
one 78-rpm (acoustic) recording.  Their 24 Ampico rolls, all recorded
in 1922 and early 1923, are well-known by collectors.

Elaine Obenchain's book, "The Complete Catalog of Ampico Reproducing
Piano Rolls," states that The Original Piano Trio performed "at a
Wanamaker's concert under Alexander Russell in 1922."  Does anyone have
an announcement or a program for this, or any other public performance
of The Original Piano Trio?  Does anyone know if the rumored 78-rpm
recording exists?
