HIRAM'S VALLEY. American, Quadrille. According to Kerry Blech, the tune was recorded in December, 1925, at the Victor field studio in St. Louis, from the playing of Judge Sturdy's Orchestra, an old-time band who recorded only four sides. Judge John O. Strudy was born in 1858, lived in the Valley Park area, and fiddled and called figures. His band included a bowed cello. See also their "Moselle."
