Smile Brittish Decca 78 record

While not a phonograph, it is phonograph related.
Today, a record I bought off ebay from a dealer in Brittain safely arrived.
Billy Cotton was the main singer on both sides, along with a group of men, and a big band orchestra.
Side A "I've got a lovely bunch of cocoanuts"
Side B "Hang on the bell, Nellie"

This is actually a better record than I first thought. While I like the Danny Kaye version on Decca made here in the states of side A better, it's pretty good.
Side B is actually good, and, I like the swing beat.
Let me put in the chorus words here....

"Hang on the bell, Nellie. Hang on the bell. Your poor dad is locked in a cold prison cell. As you swing to the left, and, swing to the right, remember the curfew bell must never ring tonight."

It's actually a kind of funny song.
Just wanted to tell about it.....

For those of us that don't know this artist well, is this acoustic or electrical era?

I have many 78s and love them all!!!!

Several DECCA and a whole album full of "18 Top hits" .. I have 2 FULL SIZE 78s (Same size as a 33) and I have one ONE SIDED 78 from 1912 I believe....... (Nothing on the other side)


If you like 78s,here is a whole directory of 78s someone put up for ppl to listen

http://New090908:654321@cdbpdx.com/78records/list

Its not as nice as having the actual 78 (Analog) but its ok...
