Title

Joe Lewis singing

Description

Joe Lewis modified an accordion and used it to accompany himself on singing calls. He also used it to accompany his singing of songs as an entertainer after (or during) the dance. These two were recorded during a dance in the mid-1950's. Here he performs Frankie and Johnny, and a parody of square dance patter with the tag, "I wish that caller would say just what he means."
