This version of Sail Away Ladies was recorded by Kentucky fiddler Henry L. Bandy in 1928, making it one of the earliest known recordings of this tune.  I only transcribed the first minute of the recording, as the fiddling is fairly irregular and and very interesting, other than for its historical value.

This tune is a member of the following groups:

Sail Away Ladies, Sally Ann, Great Big Taters
