Wilbur Sweatman and his Band (Lost Cylinders)
The cylinders listed below were reputably made for the Metropolitan Music Store in Minneapolis and were possibly issued by the store in limited quantities, but there are no known surviving copies of these cylinders. This is a pity, because it is believed to be the first recording of Scott Joplin‘s Maple Leaf Rag.
