      Yeah, that toothless kid on kick-drum is terrific, both rhythmically and visually. I'm pretty sure Jack Bland is the other guitar player along with Eddie Condon. The rhythm section boots along perfectly. And I like this tune. I wish I could have been there.

      The personnel includes Red McKenzie on comb and megaphone & Eddie Condon on
      the first guitar - the splice is in the original film; it looks as if
      McKenzie was about to sing and that was clipped out. All copies I've seen
      of the film are exactly the same.

      Here is an absolutely hilarious 1929 Vitaphone clip of the Mound City Blue
      Blowers, giving a new meaning to the the term kick drum. The percussion
      consists of a suitcase, dinner napkin and two whisk brooms. Honorable
      mention also goes to another unusual instument; an amplified (megaphone
      style) comb.
      If I understand correctly these early sound films consisted of a record and
      a film projector, and it looks like the sound is a little bit out of sync in
      the beginning. It also seems that a part of the recording was edited out in
      the middle. Would appreciate it if somebody could advise where to find the
      complete recording, if available.
