Re: [RedHotJazz] Mabel's Dream
- Thank you Alan,
perhaps we are not going any further with this question?
To me the tune sounds very typical King Joe, but what
do we know about the arrangements?

I did post a further message regarding this title but it appears not to have got
through. The composer of 'Mabel's Dream' is given in the Brian Rust and Walter C
Allen book 'King Joe Oliver' as Ike Smith, with a copyright date of 16th
November 1923. The same source credits 'I'm going away to wear you off my mind'
to Warren Smith, Lloyd Smith & Clarence Johnson with copyright dates of 21st
July 1922, 25th October 1922 & 22nd November 1922. Clarence Johnson is a
familiar name as a composer but the only Warren Smith that I recall was a
trombone player who was one of the original partners in the co-operative the was
the Bob Crosby band. Whether this is the same person I have no way of knowing.
I also tried the main site this morning and it is still down - anyone have any
