The Pig Got Up and Slowly Walked Away

How can you not like a song called The Pig Got Up and Slowly Walked Away? Crumit came up through Vaudeville and recorded some sides in 1919. His popularity rose with the advent of the microphone which could record his rich tenor tones.

Note: I've taken this down and replaced it with a link to where you can purchase the cd. This was posted long before I learned of a connection I now have with those responsible for issuing this excellent series. I firmly support sharing this great music, but also supporting those who continue to take the time to reissue what otherwise might be lost to posterity. This is why certain labels do not appear here. So kick out a few dollars and buy the cd. It's worth it. Really. Enjoy. +

Thanks for this post. The only Frank Crumit disc I had was a well worn 78 of the Song of the Prune, until it sadly went up to that great shellac resting place in the sky!

Glad you like it. There is a previous Crumit disc which I don't have, and I'm not sure what's on it. I've been working my way through my 78s, and once I get settled hope to post a few more Crumit sides. Oh By Jingo!, So Long Oolong, and a few more.
