Hello all,

Continuing with the never before seen transcriptions of the LoC recordings.

The 14th December 1938 AFS 2488-A is presented for your viewing.   Mention
of the Pensacola Kid, Albertine Pickens, Ada "Bricktop" Smith and Lucille
Hegamin.   Special thanks to Brian Goggin, Robin Penna and Roger Richard for
their help.

These final recordings, all titled on the Library of Congress AFS accession
catalogue cards as "New Orleans Street Bands" contain "footnotes," which I
recommend you read to gain the full information that has been properly

Peter Hanley has updated the Mamie Desdunes "portrait" and also the Alfred
Wilson "portrait" complete with details of his death.

All of the above updates can be accessed from the UPDATED BOX at :


Musically yours
