Lefty, thanks for taking the trouble on this. I know nothing about the recording, but I enjoyed listening tremendously. Al Jolson was one of a kind, He fitted the era and to hear this is really a nostalgic treat.

Just wondering if anyone in this group can supply any info on a mysterious 12" acetate 33 1/3rpm disc I just ran across. It seems to be a radio anthology about Al Jolson, made up of various broadcast clips and commercial recordings, and narrated by an unidentified announcer. The label is from something called "International Sound, Inc." with a Hollywood address, on which is typed "Al Jolson Story", "side 1" and "side 2". So that's all I know. The disc has not been treated well through the years, but I have (tediously) transferred and restored it and scanned the labels; an mp3 of the show on and the scans can be downloaded from Mediafire below:
If anyone can tell me anything about this, I would most appreciate it! I'm not sure if this is in circulation or not, but I found it
