This was Dalhart's most outstanding stage success although he continued performing on stage for many years.
While waiting for the fall tour of H. Pinafore, Dalhart made another attempt to record for Edison. The tests were shelved and forgotten. Upon returning from the tour in January , Dalhart again tested for Edison. The tests were again rejected. It was still 18 months before the first record appeared. When it did appear, it was from Columbia, not Edison.
This was followed the same month by two records from Emerson. Blue Amberol , Edison Diamond Disc Even before the record was issued, Edison gave Dalhart an exclusive two-year contract.

Retrieved 25 July Because of the large number of Dalhart releases, at least a hundred pseudonyms have been verified as used by record companies on Dalhart recordings.
There were more than eighty names used in the United States, including more than twenty names of groups in which Dalhart either sang or played the kazoo. Another thirty or more names were used in England, Australia and Canada. In addition, Dalhart sang with many musical groups and often was unidentified on the label.
Including foreign issues, discographers have listed nearly sides on more than labels released in the United States, with another sides, or so, released outside the United States. Allowing for the records where Dalhart only appeared on one side, there were well over Dalhart records issued since Obviously he did not make this many recordings.
Many of the masters were released on a dozen, or more, different labels. No doubt because of the success of "The Wreck of the Old 97," Dalhart would record many songs about actual events. Soon after Charles A. Lindbergh's solo nonstop transatlantic flight on May 21 , Dalhart entered many studios and recorded Johnson and Sherman's "Lindbergh The Eagle of the U. He would record several other songs about Lindbergh. Dalhart had met Hood years earlier. During his early Edison Tone Test Recitals, she was the violinist who accompanied the tenor.
She was an accomplished violinist and also played the piano and sang. Although Robison respected Hood, he resented Dalhart making a change in their group without his approval. He had already been at odds with Dalhart since Dalhart collected a portion of the royalties on songs that Robison wrote and which Dalhart recorded a common practice among singers at the time.
Despite Robison's objections, the trio of Hood, Robison and Dalhart recorded together and some of Dalhart's most popular songs were released during this time. By mid, Robison had found a new partner in Frank Luther and left Dalhart.
Dalhart managed to record over songs after Robison left-- sometimes performing with Hood, sometimes without. They were issued on at least sides, but Dalhart's popularity was waning. Robison's song-writing had helped Dalhart in the past--his departure contributed to a decline in Dalhart's popularity. Radio was increasingly hurting record sales. By the record industry suffered heavily from the Depression, and performing artists came to rely on radio, not recording work, for their income.
Dalhart had earlier appeared on network radio, including at least one full hour show for Majestic Radio in Finally, in , along with Adelyne Hood, he hosted a network show for Barbasol. The show was broadcast three times a week on Columbia but left the air in October after only six months.
Apparently at least some of the shows were done by transcription since Dalhart and Hood were in England early in This may have contributed to the show's early demise.

Another of Garland's important associates was Chet Atkins both as a fellow musician and producer.
Atkins regarded Garland to be the best guitarist to ever arrive to Nashville. They held a couple more sessions in before recording ' After the Riot at Newport ' on July 4, , as a result of the cancellation of their scheduled appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival as the Nashville All Stars that day [ 1 , 2 ]. It was also that Garland's car left the highway near Springfield, Tennessee. The result was brain damage and inability to play his instrument.
Though Garland spent years in the endeavor he wasn't able to attain to his former ability. Praguefrank's lists him on only two sessions thereafter, once in '66 with the Nashville Cats, once again toward the issued of 'Jazz in New York' [rocky52].
