A couple of months ago I found at a Goodwill a single sided Victor of "Laughing Song" on a batwing label.  Based on the label design the record dates from 1914-16.  I didn't know this one existed.  When was this recorded? No music on this one like the Okeh.  It's 52004 by Henry Klauser.

I have the Parlophone Laughing Record No.2, but do you think I can find 
it? No laughing matter...
