Maple Leaf Rag / Terrible Blues ? (Edit: Lu Watters)

Just came across this record with plain white, typewritten labels...not unlike some party records...that I have had since I first started collecting in California over 15 years ago.

I do not have the ability like some who can recognize musicians by ear.

Does anyone have a clue as to who these sides might be by?

Maple Leaf Rag has imprinted in the dead wax..."JMS-1" while Terrible Blues has..."MLB-121."

  1. (J.M.J.) The "JMS-1" imprinted in the dead wax very well may indicate the Maple Leaf Rag released in 1941 by Lu Watters Yerba Buena Jazz Band on Jazz Man Records #1 (JM-1)? They also had an unreleased Terrible Blues version in 1942.
