Transcription Mystery Disc #204

This is a Silvertone 10-inch acetate recording. It spins at 78 rpm and has a metal core.  Unlike many others it is labeled  "There I Go" - No I Lay Me Down to Dream, Installation Speech by E.C. Greetings C7C  12-19-40" Honestly not all of that makes sense except the date.

Richard Carlson - There I Go

"There I Go" is a saxophone solo by Richard Carlson. "Now I Lay me Down to Dream" is a short Barrelhouse piano piece by "Dick". Probably the same guy.  The song may be a take off of the tune by a  same of the same title by Ted Fiorito that came out in 1940. E.C. is probably Mrs. Carlson but her name is absent. The recording sounds surprisingly good considering it's 74 years old.
