One Born Every Minute

came across this on youtube

The following post accompanied the clip:

"I have in my possession what I believe to be an original and unreleased reel-to-reel recording of what sounds like Ol' Blue Eyes himself. 

I got the recording in a box of old recording equipment and tapes that were sold on auction from a storage facility in Hollywood two years ago. The reel-to-reel tape is titled "A7May66Reprise", and no other information came with it. I have digitized a sample of the recording and uploaded it for you to listen to. I think there may be other recordings on the tape but due to my time limitations, I haven't checked. 

I am asking $19,500 (o.b.o.) for this obviously rare reel recording:

I'm selling my copy of the acetates from the Bob Dylan-Al Jolson sessions to raise some money to buy this.

If you might want to go in a partnership to get this, please let me know.

If you haven't heard the Jolson-Dylan sessions, they are better than this Sinatra song. It's the only known recording of Jolson doing Hank Williams. Dylan himself has tried to suppress the tapes, because he apparently did a number of Jolson imitations.
