Ed Meeker, “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” (mp3/video)

Edward MeekerThe World Series always makes me think of Ed Meeker and his classic song “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” on Edison recordings. What a chorus! Next year is this songs 100th anniversary. People everywhere still sing it. Now that’s popular music! This version is ripped from a 78rpm recording, but the quality and gusto of Ed’s voice resonates magnificently. Remember: ….. “strike 3 and you’re out at the old ball game.”
