Singing for Thanksgiving Dinner - Peaches and Cream (1906)

Ada Jones started out as a mezzo-soprano before turning to the pop-music of the early 1900's. This, not really food offering of Peaches and Cream came out on a Victor 78 in 1906 and it has the conversational feel of a lot of that era's popular music. Her accompaniment, Len Spencer, recorded various back-and-forth banter songs up into the 1920's. I hope you enjoy the first offering of our Thanksgiving desert course!
