      I have a  couple of 78s of his which are on Brunswick and Columbia.The sides are Octoroon
      on Brunswick and I'll Remember on Columbia.I had his Epic four record set of King of the
      Bjues Trombone.The records were,however,warped to the point that I couldn't overcome it
      by adjusting either the grams for the tone arm or the tracking.Both were located on the
      rear of the tonearm.I have one Decca 78 of Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen.I found
      all three records at a Coos Bay,Oregon business that specialised in juke box and pinball
      macihines.This was in early 1994:The new owner of Sunset Automatic Music found the
      records by accident.There were literally thousands of like knew 78s.Two 78s I found and
      purchased were by Benny  Goodman with Ella Fitzgerald:Goodnight My Love,Take another
      Guess,'Taint No Use with a Benny Goodman vocal and a final Ella vocal on Did You Mean
      It.I was fortunate in finding the entire session.RCA was sued by Decca over those sides
      because Ella was under contract to Decca via Chick Webb's signing with Decca in the mid
      thirties.Goodman should have known better.The Teagarden sides on Decca were not very
      good.Thank you for the info.By the way,I gave a dollar each for those records in 1994.

      Dan--- Keep your eye out for any CDs of Jack Teagarden Orch broadcasts from the Meadowbrook August and September 1939. Outstanding material, much better than what he did for commercial labels at the time.
      Tunes include---
      The Lamp Is Low
      Comes Love
      Aunt Hagars Blues
      Octoroon
      Stairway to the Stars
      Wolverine Blues
      That's A'Plenty
      I Found a New Baby

      A few days ago,I found an album on the TOPS label of Jack
      Teagarden.This album featured his orchestra.The album has a picture of
      Teagarden well into middle age and I'm guessing that the album dates
      between the late fifties and the early sixties as Teagarden died at the
      age of fifty-eight in January of 1964.I found the album at a North Bend,
      Oregon Goodwill store.In fact,I found another Teagarden album on the Ca-
      may label.I've yet to play it;I suffered a small stroke a couple of we-
      eks ago and it's only now that I am getting back to some semblance of
      normalcy.
