Transcription Mystery Disc #195

This is a 6.5 inch Wilcox Gay recordio. It spins at 78 rpm and has an outer edge start. It's labele din pencil "Old Buttermilk Sky" and with the date 12/6/46. The recording is 67 years old. I recognize the song title as "Ole Buttermilk Sky." It was a Hoagy Carmichael tune a pretty hokey one. It was covered a myriad of times: Bob Wills, Willie Nelson, Crystal Gayle, Bill Black's Combo.. etc etc. 

Ole Buttermilk Sky

This version is a piano instrumental. The playing is totally competent and the recording quality is excellent. I edited out a few pops and nary a nanosecond of the original audio needed altered beyond that. I have a date and a song tile, but we don't know the pianist, just a little mystery left here.
