Vinyl 7-inch record, 45 rpm, in original card sleeve. Light corner wear to the sleeve with some rubbing on the rear panel; the disc is very good with some faint scratches and great sound. “Whatever your water transfer needs, you will find a Barnes product to handle the job…” A scarce, and unusual promotional record that demonstrates how “the development of Barnes pumps closely parallels the history of American jazz.” “Back in 1895, Barnes began making hand-pumps. Neither pumps nor music were very jazzy in those days,” relates the record, while an evolving soundtrack, arranged and conducted by Dick Wooley, plays the changing faces of jazz. “In 1914 early jazz was flourishing in New Orleans and Barnes went to war with its first line of power-pumps … For you, the pump and water systems dealer, Barnes will bring music to your ears. Profitable music played to the rhythm of your cash register.”
