Notes
From a 1897 National Gramophone Co. catalog: "A realistic farm yard scene illustrating all the different sounds attending the early morning rising of the farm inhabitants. This reproduction clearly and accurately brings out the bleating of the sheep, the lowing of the cattle, the crowing of the cock, the cackle of the hens, squeal of the guinea hen and gobble of the turkey, all being answered and accompanied by the cries of the neighboring hawk, crow and various other birds. So real is the arrangement and so exact the imitation that it requires but a slight stretch of the imagination to place one's self in that delightful position, the result of which is the drinking in of copious drafts of fresh air and numerous other pleasures attainable only on the farm."
The assignment of take place as "unconfirmed" is based upon comparison with other documented recordings by the same performer.
