Thanks to Phil O'Rourke and to Burt Wilson for identifying the hot tenor sax on "Back Home Again in Indiana"  as Ray DeGeer.    This is on a recently unearthed Vocalion 78 and has renewed my inerest in Wills lesser known sides.    I checked for Ray DeGeer in both volumes of Brian Rust but there was no listing.   So evidently Ray is a genuine bonedandfried  country/jazz sax.   Thanks much for your help and resources.    Charlie (back to lurking) Coleman
