Transcription Mystery Disc #137

This is a Wilcox-gay Recordio. It's 6.5 inches in diameter and has a metal core. This side of the disc is labeled, but it's all scratched out as you can see. It says "Wonderful You" and the artist seems to be Heinie. It is dated clearly to 1/8/47.

The song is solo piano, barely over 2 minutes long. I assumed it was a take on "You Wonderful You" from the Judy Garland Movie Summer Stock but that came out in 1950. It may be an original. The pianist Heinie remains a mystery as well.
