Jimmie Gunn & His Orchestra - Bluebird 6469 (1936)

Here's another North Carolina territory band based out of Charlotte.

These sides were recorded in the Southern Radio Corporation's 2nd floor warehouse in Charlotte on June 18, 1936.

One discography has the personnel listed as:

Jimmie Gunn p, dir / 'Slats' tb / Skeets Tolbert as / Otis Hicks ts / g / Harry Prather b / d / David Pugh, Sam Jennings v.

Another has:

Jimmie Gunn dir / Dave Pugh t, v / Charles Daniels, Herman Franklin t / John Orange tb / Robert Griffin, James Berry as / Otis Hicks ts / William Shavers p / Alton Harrington  g / Sam Hinton bb / Harry Prather sh / Raymond Mason d / Sam Jennings v.

Wonder why the wide range of disparity.
