'The Missouri Waltz'
(Hawaiian Guitar Duet, Little Wonder 739
Little Wonder records caused a sensation in North American 5 & 10¢ stores between 1915 and 1923.
They were single-sided and ran for just over a minute. Because of their small size they play at 80rpm. Early discs measured 5", later ones 5½".
These discs had no sleeves and sold for 10¢. Many different styles of music were included. Some, like this one, show the shortcomings of the original mechanical recording process, which struggles with the quiet instrumental.
