[78-L] Goofy Paramount master

Taylor's record is evidently a Personal Record for the Baltimore store.
Considering the song title, was it a music store?
The commercial issues of the Al. Colombo tune (on Pm/Pu/Pu-B/Bwy/Ban) 
are coupled with Yoo Hoo, also by Colombo, mxs 902-1/3.

I was unable to find a regular issue for mx 900, so maybe it is only on this 
custom pressing.

Taylor, can you mail me scans of both labels of your record?

Anybody ever run into this goofy thing?

Hochschild,  Kohn & Co. 1897 - 1921 Twenty Fourth Anniversary. #901
Al Colombo's Golden Glades Orch., Say It With Music - Fox Trot

It has a spoken introduction which sounds straight out of about 1902...
noting that the record is made in honor of the 24th anniversay of 
"Baltimore's Best Store."

The master in the wax says "901-2" and Rust only notes one take of "901" 
issued on Paramount and one other label.

I thought this was pretty odd that they would do a special second take for 
this department store but maybe the money was right.

The flip side sounds like it was made up by Steve Allen...label credit is 
"Hobart Smock and Manhattan Male Quartet" doing "Baltimore,  Our Baltimore." 
Master in the wax is 900-2.   The label is #900.

An amusing oddity,  if nothing else.
