I think that Frank Bessinger's voice does indeed show to good advantage on the song. He has some of those fabled "golden tones" on a few notes that make me wonder if he could have done more than sing pop songs. I've seen lots of "Radio Franks" discs in the past, but never bought any. I wish that I had now. I think that he recorded until 1928-29.
Billy Murray: I like him as an acoustic artist, but when he stopped using the loud tone that he needed for that type of recording, he sounds deflated, and kind of grandmotherish. Although it's a moot point, among the acoustic pioneers still recording in 1927, Henry Burr's voice sounds very much the same as it did twenty years earlier. I'd put him in the "crooner" category, even if he pre-dates the phenomenon by a few years. Certainly a more masculine sound than, let's say, Seger Ellis.
