Who Walks in When I Walk Out was also done by the Firehouse Five plus
Two, in their typical raucous style. It was one of the first tunes I
heard by them. It was part of their first "album" (a box of 45's).
They really turned me on to OKOM when I was in Jr. High.
I have also just acquired a CD of Abe Lyman's orchestra. When I was
barely old enough to run the record player, I found a 78 by Abe Lyman
among my parents collection. I think it was 12th Street Rag and maybe
St Louis Blues on the flip side. The CD contains recordings from 1923
to '32. This band was apparently big in the Los Angeles area where I
grew up. By the time I joined the family, my parents had apparently lost
interest in dance music and never talked about the bands. The Lyman
band swings pretty good, but there is quite a bit of "corny" trombone
work. They play a tune called Weary Weazel which is obviously stolen
from Tiger Rag.
