He didn't have the virtuoso chops of Harry Reser, but Sleepy Hall had a wonderfully loose-wristed strumming style and an innate sense of syncopation... his playing just makes me happy!
Other titles I can't find online ... "In the Sweet Bye and Bye" "My Little Debutante"
And here he is captured on film playing banjo at his 1969 45th reunion of the Yale class of 1924...
Forgot to mention that Sleepy Hall played plectrum banjo!
And also that dozens of the records made in the early thirties bearing names like "Sleepy Hall and his Collegians" not only don't have Sleepy Hall on them, but also don't have any banjo at all!
It seems that somebody at the record company just liked the name "Sleepy Hall", and gave it out freely to any studio recording group they pleased!
