      Uncle Dave Lewis sends this one in:

      Here's what he has to say about it:

      This is an odd one. The different musical settings of
      these tunes seem to try and reflect a sound associated
      with the locales of these places. San Francisco gets a
      swell, standard upper-class society dance treatment,
      and Joe Green lays down a pretty mean chorus on two
      woodblocks for the sake of Kentucky. Georgia is
      saluted in a sentimental salon type setting (this is,
      after all, The Troubadours in disguise) but the medley
      finishes with the hot chorus in New Hampshire (!),
      making one wonder if they might not have gotten their
      states mixed up. The cornet on this sounds to my ears
      like Phil Napoleon - other guesses are welcome. Banjo
      solo is fairly indistinct and barely comes through,
      which means Harry Reser ain't playin' it!
