Came across this one buried deep in a bunch of maroon King labeled country 78s (for a change, I snatched those up too).
I may be wrong (sometimes Rust's Discographies trip me up on personnel from one recording session to the next) but I believe that Red Nichols is present on the Varsity Eight (a pseudonym for the California Ramblers) side. He allegedly played on a few of Paul Van Loan's (a former trombonist and arranger for Jean Goldkette) recordings but this isn't one of 'em.
