Feat. Henry Burr


This record was made in Camden, New Jersey on November 21st 1925 featuring vocalist Henry Burr.

*"Don't Wait Too Long" was written by Irving Berlin. The song was featured in the "Music Box Revue" a musical theater revue staged by Hassard Short with music by Irving Berlin; containing contributions from a number of writers including Robert Benchley. It debuted in New York at the Music Box Theater in 1921, where it ran for 440 performances ending in 1924.

Art Landry was a clarinetist and leader of one of the earliest dance orchestras to gain widespread popularity known simply as the "Art Landry Band". His famous "Call Of The North Orchestra" was formed in the early '20's and recorded extensively on the East Coast from 1923 until 1927, billed as either "Art Landry & His Call of the North Orchestra" or simply "Art Landry & His Orchestra". He also released recordings under the names Art Landry's "Syncopatin' Six", "The Regent Orchestra" and "Art Landry & His Commodore Band." Art Landry would retire from music during the early 1930's shortly before the dance band boom.
