The California Ramblers were a popular and prolific jazz group from the 1920s, that recorded hundreds of songs under many different record labels throughout the 1920s. Three of the members of the band, Red Nichols, Jimmy Dorsey, and Tommy Dorsey, would go on to front big bands in later decades. The original bandmembers were from Ohio, but chose the name California Ramblers because they thought people would be less inclined to listen to a jazz band from the Midwest. They recorded for nearly every independent label in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., using over 100 unique aliases. This excellent record was made in 1929, with a vocal by Phil Dewey.

I'm not surprised, Lou; the Edison laterals are among the rarest, but this is so good isn't it.

Patrick,This was very nice.Anything on that Edison Needle Type label brings over $100 here.

Ratpfink, Isham Jones' style is almost palpable here despite this being another orchestra playing. It's a pity indeed this great song was largely neglected, it deserves a lot better.

Walter, it seems my response to your comment vanished... I take the opportunity to thank you again for your appreciation!

A long neglected Isham Jones tune, one of my favorite songs of his...
BTW, the "R" on Edison labels meant Right and the "L" meant Left!
Left was considered the "A-side" and faced that way in the store shelves.
