You're right.It was Irene Taylor.The copy I had was an original issue.I don't know if it's still with me as my sister in law sold off my part of my nearly 40 year old record collection.The
copy I had was given to me by a close friend.My sister in law Flora sold off a good deal of
my record collection,1500 albums for $100.What they sold out of the trailer I was living in
went back 40 years.I was infuriated with her;all of this happened in 2003 when I came back
to my hometown here in North Bend,Oregon.

The vocalist in Whiteman's "Mississippi Mud" was Irene Taylor, who had
the distinction of being the first female vocalist hired by Whiteman
in a recording. Irene Taylor also made recordings with Seger Ellis and
His Choir of Brass Orchestra. Seger Ellis was Irene Taylor's husband.
