Thomas "Fats" Waller Autograph Signed 78 RPM 10" Single Record
The 10" 78 RPM single "Baby Face" signed on the paper sleeve by Thomas "Fats" Waller in pencil.. The record shows a number of scratches which may affect play. The signature is 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. I obtained a number of other vintage 78s from the same collection, bearing such rare autographs as Charlie Parker, Lead Belly, Django Reinhart and Glenn Miller. I am not aware of any connection between Waller and the artists who recorded the record he signed, The Uptown String Band, I imagine it just happened to be at hand at the moment.
