Lead Belly Huddie Ledbetter Rev Gary Davis Marian Anderson Autograph Signed "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child" 78 Record Leadbelly
The 78 record "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child" by Marian Anderson, signed on the paper sleeve by Huddie Ledbetter, Rev Gary Davis and Marian Anderson in pencil. Lead Belly is of course rare in any form. Rev Gary Davis is rarer still, having been blind since childhood. The signatures are believed to have been obtained at either the recording studio or music store of guitarist Harry Volpe. Harry's guitar center was on West 48th Street in New York, his recording studio in Jackson Heights, Queens. Many artists of the day would congregate at Harry's store and studio, often resulting in some truly star-studded jams. The record shows signs of wear and age, but certainly looks to be in playable condition. I obtained a number of vintage signed 78s from the same source containing some very rare signatures. This was the second Huddie Ledbetter signed sleeve I had obtained from this collection. Some of the other signatures obtained include Django Reinhardt, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Glen Miller, Charlie Parker, W C Handy, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, the Ink Spots and Muddy Waters. Some of those are still being offered here in my listings.
