      You are correct.
      It is an EARLY version of the Memphis Five but issued under the
      name of Lanin's Southern Serenaders with a different personnel than
      the later Memphis Five. Also listed in 'The Fabulous Fives'
      Sam Lanin groups also were issued on the Arto-Bell labels.
      Personnel probably is:
      Phil Napoleon (TP) Moe Gappel (TB) Jimmy Lytell (CL)
      Frank Signorelli (P) Jack Roth (D)
      Notice I said probably as Miff Mole moved in and out of the band so
      did Lytell as he replaced Doc Behrendson on clarinet especially in
      the first half year of 1922.
      I hope this helps somewhat.
