Each time I listen to this record I am totally captivated. It is one of the few records in my collection that captures my full attention as I listen with sincere respect. This is a rare recording entitled "Veteran's Last Song" on the circa 1927 Electra label featuring 85 year old Lauren Higbie as he sings a very memorable and breathtaking tribute to his fallen Civil War comrades and his life as a Civil War veteran. I guess you can tell that I am deeply moved by this recording and I hope that you are as well. I found this record many years ago while walking around a flea market and since that day have considered it one of the real treasures of my record collection. I intentionally selected one of my Victor III phonographs to play this record (as opposed to one of my Credenzas) since it sounds best on this. Thanks so much for stopping in and, if you would, please feel free to take a moment to share your comments about this recording. I would really enjoy hearing from you.
