Transcription Mystery Disc #161

 I must warn you now that this one is cloyingly cute. This 6-inch Recordio spins at 78 rpm and the recording levels were very low. It is unlabeled but the disc is virtually unmarred which is unusual. It looks fresh out of the box except for the grooves.



The recording is of two little boys and a woman presumably their mother. On side A one kid sings Twinkle Twinkle little star and gets the words wrong a couple times. On the other side are Jack and Jill and a bit of Humpty Dumpty. Then they and mom discuss recent events and an impending party. There are no names, times or places. It's undatable. This make of disc was common in the 1950s. I can only ball park it to late 50s early 60s generally.
