'Ten Little Indians'
Vocal Quartet, Little Wonder 846
Little Wonder records caused a sensation in North American 5 & 10¢ stores between 1915 and 1923.
They were single-sided and ran for just over a minute. Because of their small size they were made to play at 80rpm. The first discs were 5" in diameter, which later increased to 5½". Each was sold without a sleeve for 10¢.
This song was one of the best sellers; the mechanical recording method worked particularly well with the vocal quartet, still giving a reasonable sound almost a century after the disc was released.
