Dear Jim,
Arnie was correct in advising that the Feb 1918 Artempo  piano roll version
of "Carolina Shout" is different from the May 1921 QRS version.
The tune was not copyrighted or published at this time (1918).
The QRS piano roll version (the one we all know and love) was finally
copyrighted by 'Jas P. Johnson' in 1921.
If anyone wants to compare the two versions both are/were available on LP
and CD, under James P Johnson's name, as follows:
1918 (Artempo 12975).  Biograph BLP-1001Q and Biograph BCD-150.
1921 (QRS 100999).  Biograph BLP-1003Q and Biograph BCD-105.
Very kind regards,
