Kind of an odd pairing...yodeling and jazz.

Jean Goldkette & His Orchestra / Coon-Sanders Orchestra - Victor 22077 (1929)

Got this one because of all the controversy surrounding the B-side.

Is it Goldkette's Orchestra or McKinney's Cotton Pickers...I guess it's all in who you ask.

Rust has this as a McKinney's Cotton Pickers recording.

Here's a thoroughly researched article about it.

Recorded in Chicago on July 27, 1929.

Recorded in Chicago on July 24, 1929. 

Bobbie & Boobie - Dice 480 (1958)

While out looking for 78s recently, got permission to rummage through all kinds of records stored in some out-buildings behind a record store. Brought this one out on a whim thinking maybe the kids would enjoy a different Christmas song...judging from the title on one side...for the school commutes.

After getting home, tried to research personnel and a recording date only to find very little. It does seem to be a fairly collectible R&B record from 1958 and Bobbie appears to be Bobby Nunn of The Robins and later, a founding member of The Coasters.

Please feel free to enlighten me even more if anyone has information on these sides.
