#3 In Love's Garden Just You and I Band
#4 The Boston Stop (Hesitation) Band
#9 20th Century Rag Band
#20 Back To The Carolina You Love Tenor Solo, perhaps the most famous of all Little Wonder records because it is sung by Al Jolson.- According to Brian Rust, this was recorded in New York City on September 19, 1914, and on the same day Jolson recorded the song for Columbia (A-1621 "Back To The Carolina You Love"/"Revival Day"). -This was a few years before Jolson became famous and so he didn't demand a performer credit on the label. -
