NONE GREATER THAN LINCOLN. American, Air (3/4 time). USA, Alabama. A distanced version of "Drunken Hiccups (1)" in the repertory of west Alabama fiddler D. Dix Hollis (1861-1927), also the town physician of Sulligent, who considered it one of "the good old tunes of long ago" (as quoted in the Opelika Daily News of April 17, 1926" {Joyce Cauthen, 1990}). [See also Joyce Cauthen's article "D. Dix Hollis--Early Paramount Recording Artist and Fiddler Who Challenged the World," JEMF Quarterly, Volume 1985]. Hollis recorded the tune in New York in 1924 at his only recording session, for Paramound Records, but the side was unissued (it can be heard on Document-8032).
