Mac & Bob

Here are a few 78s of Lester McFarland and Robert A. Gardner. Notice anything strange about the above photo? They are looking at each other! Blind people usually don't do that. Guess the record company decided people wouldn't buy records from blind people. I can just imagine the photographer about to take the picture, saying to the musicians, "ok, fellas just look at each other as though you could see."

You're As Welcome As The Flowers In May (Vocalion 5128, 1927)
