Ideal0511_Fate.jpg (16 kb) Ideal 0511, "Fate (It Was Fate When I First Met You)", by Byron Gay (1922), from the stage revue "Greenwich Village Follies".  A lovely and haunting tune that was recorded by Paul Whiteman and others.  This piano roll performance features organ-like sounds with a raggy piano obbligato and seems an ungainly attempt at jazz.  Unfortunately, the artist's name on the box label is obscured.

Hit340_Kiss_Me_Again.jpg (18 kb) Hit H-340, "Kiss Me Again", organ arragement; (C) 1915 by Victor Herbert.  The original setting of "Kiss Me Again" was the final waltz section of a parody called "If I Were On the Stage" in Herbert's 1905 musical, "Mlle. Modiste".  The audience so loved it that Herbert penned new lyrics for subsequent performances.
