Sheet Music Advertisements

I took to collecting Swing Era sheet music a few years back, so I found this post on Vintage Ads particularly interesting.  It features several advertisements for sheet music, as well as the ad above, which appears to be promoting recordings of "Small Fry" by seven different artists, including Bing Crosby (the original), Kay Kyser, Hal Kemp and Mildred Bailey.
