Misc. Comments

No.3, the Pearl Waltz, was recorded, along with the Message of Love Polka Op.74, by Neely Bruce in 1972 (in a 3-LP set on Vox called Piano music in America. : Volume I 19th century popular concert & parlor music.) Sudds' piano works seem not to have been much recorded otherwise. (One of the few exceptions seems to be a non-commercial video of his opus 85 Trippin' thro' the Daisies Polka on YouTube.)
