      Hi Mordechai,

      There are four distinct 1928 versions:

      Clarence Williams' Jazz Kings (4-10-28), CW-vocal

      Clarence Williams' Washboard Five (400620-B; 4-18-28), unidentified-speech

      King Oliver and His Dixie Syncopators (6-11-28), CW-vocal

      Clarence Williams' Washboard Five (400620-C; remake session, 6-23-28),
      CW-speech

      According to Neatwork RP 2025, Classics 752 uses 400620-C, instead of
      Take B as it claims. The same unidentified speaker on 400620-B seems to
      interject during the two Williams' vocals (unless this is CW himself). Ed Allen
      plays cornet(?) on the Williams sessions, no flugelhorn that I'm aware of...

      Cheers,

      John

      with an excellent flugel horn solo in the style of Bix Beiderbecke (it was not
      played by him). The rest of the recording was only average. Unfortunately I
      don't have any other information that I can remember.
