claimed that the session was theirs, that they hired Nordskog to record and
get it pressed for them, and that he illegitimately put his own label on the
pressings, some of which they then converted.
We shall never know "the truth", which I put in inverted commas because it
may be a relative concept in this case! That the band is credited to Spikes
on Nordskog and to Ory on Sunshine has always suggested to me that there may
have been a genuine misunderstanding about what was meant to happen.
