These recordings betray the usual Columbia pitching issues of the time. Though nominally at 80rpm, the first runs at 78rpm and the next three, all recorded on the same day as the first, accelerate from about 78 to 79rpm through the course of each side. The 2 sides recorded in April run from 77 to 78rpm across each side.
