The song my mother always used to sing to me and my sister before bed was 'Scarlett Ribbons'. It was covered by a few artists, but I think Jo Stafford did the the version my grandmother used to sing to my mother when she was young.

I still sing it to myself occasionally.


That Fred Gerlach is astoundingly lovely. Thank you!


Didn't the Carters first record in '27? (the famed 'Bristol Sessions' comes to mind) -- It was a golden era for recording culture, for sure.

I am about to go search for a version of that song. Thanks for your response.

Holly, Glad you enjoyed it.


I think you are right about 1927 being their first recording dates; amazing music.
