Selvin's Orchestra - Emerson 10133 (1920)

It looks as if this record is the product of Ben Selvin's sixth recording session...with Yellow Dog Blues being his first entry listed in Rust's Jazz & Ragtime Records.

Joseph C. Smith's version of the W.C. Handy Composition (recorded five months earlier) can be found here.

Interesting reading can be found here on W.C. Handy and the royalties tied to his earliest recorded compositions.

Ben Selvin vn, dir / Harry Glantz t / Ephraim Hannaford tb / Benny Krueger as / 2nd vn / Bernie Grauer p / John Cali bj / Milton Sands d / Frank Clegg x.

Recorded in New York in February, 1920.
