Daly's Reel One-Step By Van Ep's Banjo Orchestra 1917 Edison Blue Amberol Cylinder Record

I have a lively one for you this evening ... Van Ep's Banjo Orchestra with a One-Step number titled "Daly's Reel".  The Orchestra features the incredible Fred Van Eps.  This song was recorded in 1917 and was pressed on Thomas Edison's Blue Amberol label (Catalog number: 3236).  The record is played on an Edison Amberola Phonograph VI-B or BVI.  The Amberola was manufactured in 1913 into 1914.

Here is an amazing story about Fred being the only person in town with a Phonograph in the 1890s and making his money back for it within a week by demonstrating it to interested people: http://www.gracyk.com/fredvaneps.shtml
