Signed 1915 Columbia Records release, #A - 1855, one of the earliest comedy releases ever put on phonograph discs, featuring a skit titled "Trust Scene," boldly etched into the dead wax and partly on the record labels: "Joe Weber - Lew Fields." The B side of this record has mechanically etched signatures of the performers. Very good condition.
Immensely popular Polish-Jewish comedy team who, at the height of their stage success, opened up their own Broadway venue in 1896 and booked some of the greatest talent of the early 20th century. Included in this roster are Gallagher and Sheen, The Marx Brothers, Ted Healy and his Three Stooges, Jimmy Durante and W.C. Fields. They are also credited with recording some of the earliest known comedy phonograph records between 1912 and 1915.
Condition: Very Good
