      There are three recordings of Mabel's Dream by the Creole Jazz Band. On the RHJA
      site the best version IMHO is missing - I don't know why. In addition, it has
      the same date as the other two versions, which is incorrect. The OKeh 8487
      version has a wonderful cornet duet by Oliver and Armstrong which to me is one
      of the highlights of all the Creole Band recordings. (A second session has two
      The discographical information that I have, based on CD notes, also indicates
      confusion as to the actual recording dates of the two sessions, and even
      confusion as to which recording session came first.
      Does anybody know if these recording dates have been settled?

      Dear Leif,

      Sorry I can't help with any information about 'Mabel's Dream' other than to say
      it was copyrighted on November 16, 1923 that was about one month after King
      Oliver recorded it.
      'I'm Going Away To Wear You Off My Mind' wasn't composed by Ike Smith, but by
      Warren Smith, Lloyd Smith, and Clarence Johnson.
      I'm not surprised at this surmise, we Smiths have the second most common surname
      on the planet

      Kind Regards

      Bob Smith
