since the subject has been brought up, I just recently purchased an old sheet music portfolio for the song "Absinthe Frappe". It is very large and has 7 pages. I was planning to take it to kincos and have it copied. anyone here who also like a copy for themself can send me an email. I would be happy to send them at my cost.

Add that to the list of absinthe songs.

The rarest two I've ever heard of were both composed by Cole Porter.

Porter wrote the music and lyrics for the song "Le Reve D'Absinthe", which appeared in a play called CORA (November 28, 1911). An amateur affair, it was performed by the Phi Opera Company at Yale's Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity house. No music or lyrics survive.

The second song was written for a Yale University Dramatic Association show called THE KALEIDOSCOPE (April 30 and May 7, 1913). It was called "The Absinthe Drip", and only the lyrics survive. Apparently, it was never recorded or even published as a song sheet.

THE KALEIDOSCOPE also included a song called "Absinthe", whose music Porter later used for another song, "Two Big Eyes", in MISS INFORMATION (1915).

Apparently, collegiate Cole was a big absinthe fan.

Anyone here collect the early Edison wax cylinders? My dad used to have a cylinder player, mounted on top of a walnut cabinet with drawers made to hold the cylinders. An original Edison. It came with about 20 cylinders, including a "blackface" comedy routine from 1905 or so. Comedy often doesn't age well.

carved panel? no
unfortunately it also doesn't have the original motor in it... someone, many years ago replaced it, the holes for the crank didn't match up so there's two holes now.
i could give you the other numbers on it if it would help pin down some of the particulars... i'll have to work on the photos, i'll post them when i do... it may take awhile though the computer i'm on now can barely handle the internet, the computer with all the photoshop and scanner stuff is on it's way to the shop.

rimbaud- i couldn't find it in my collection, sorry.

i did find some nice 78's of note (so to speak), some where 10" some where 12" :
ave maria- john mccormack and fritz kreisler
uncle john's arrival in n.y.c. - cal stewart
the owl and the pussy cat- hayden quartet
chili bean- joseph samuels music masters
when uncle joe plays a rag on his banjo- arthur collins
anvil chorus II trovatore- victor orchestra
stille nacht, heillige nacht- ernestine schumann-heink
because your mine- mario lanza

and one for the happy couple:

2LY,
The XVI is a beautiful machine, does yours have the carved panel between the lid?......In it's day (1907-1921) it cost between $200.00 to $750.00 . (When the dollar was a real dollar)
That machine had a number of finishes and accessories......Do you have a photo?
Depending on the year, wood, and extras it could be quite a valuable machine.
