• Short Summary

    Banjo player Lou Abelardo sings the plaintive song 'S'posing' in the studio.

  • Description

    Lou Abelardo - singer and banjo player.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    On a set dressed with the usual potted palms, we see Lou Abelardo, a slim man with a moustache wearing white tie and tails, playing the banjo. The song is a plaintive little tune, called 'S'posing'. It's about "S'posing I should fall in love with you, do you think that you could love me too? S'posing I would hold you and caress you, would it impress you, or distress you?"

    Note: item is slightly out of synch throughout due to early sound recording.
