      Won't Don't Blues from Creath's November session is normally regarded as
      Lonnie's first recording.

      No one has ever previously reported a violin on the earlier session, and I
      would issue the warning that some dubbing processes notoriously introduce a
      false harmonic (I think that's the correct description) that some listeners
      hear as a violin. It is a bane of discographers, though phantom violins are
      more often reported on Paramounts than other labels.

      John R.T. Davies dubbings of all the Creaths are on Timless CBC1-036 Jazz In
      saint Louis 1924-1927.
