I'm the last person to ask about CD reissues! Sorry about that. But I doubt that there is much of a market for the recordings of Joseph C. Smith's Orch. I keep copies of dance band records such as this because I'm a student of Tin Pan Alley.
As far as I know, Smith's records aren't really considered "collectible" by most 78 rpm collectors. I think this is because the content is not especially interesting to them musically. But they are, of course, important Tim Pan Alley documentation of the late 1910s and early '20s.

Many thanks, Mike,
that is something I can work with.
Do you have you have idea if this track was reissued on cd recently?

It's not the same "Yearning" as the 1925 tune
. Victor 18603 is a medley of "Yeaning" and "Spring Time", and the composer
credit is Neil Moret and Dave Stamper. It is unclear to me whether or not
these are the composers of both tunes on this recording.
FYI, the "A" side of Vic 18603 is "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" by Selvin's
