Re: Sweet Emmalina
- 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),
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...
