The new "motLer" song is
sure to reach your heart
"Mother, a Word that Means
the World to Me," is not a com
position of pretentious literary or
musical standards. It is just a
simple outvoicing of popular f eel-ino-
trtiirriino- the heartstrings of
"fc, - 1 ,
I sentiment, with a melody that swings to the warmth
iand fervor of the emotion. And as it is sung by
Henry Burr it pictures in your mind a dear mother
'somewhere the best mother that ever lived.
On the reverse side of this record, Albert Campbell joins Mr.
Burr in a splendid duet of a sentimental ballad, "The Wedding of
I the Sunshine and the Rose."
