"I Can't Get Started" - original Victor recording: Good, natural, unrestored sound from a 78 rpm pressing -

"I Can't Get Started" - original Victor recording - ALTERNATE TAKE!
This is the RCA Victor alternate take recorded the same day and date as the famous version. This remained unissued until the late LP era. Lots of fascinating little differences in both his solos and his vocal! It's a little faster, too.
