Description
From Edison records catalog: After you have listened to this Re-Creation a few times you will probably decide it is one of the most perfectly rendered songs you ever heard. Notice, particularly, the orchestra accompaniment in the refrain. This lyric gives a new idea to the many "war-lyrics" that have been written. "Just a Baby's Prayer at Twilight, for a Daddy Over There." Few parents will hear that, as the Homestead Trio sings it, without being affected. The three singers are Gladys Rice, Betsy Lane Shepherd and Amy Ellerman. sound recording | 1 sound disc : analog, 80 rpm ; 10 in. | Copyright: Waterson, Berlin & Snyder, 1918/Mills Music Inc., 1948..
