Fun to look at those pseudonyms and realize that many of them were used to get around the "exclusive"
clauses in a musicians contract with a record label. Thus Charlie Chan might record on Columbia to make
some extra bread when in fact he would have been prevented from doing so under his real name because of his
contract with Savoy.

Nothing like making Bill Haesler's discography job harder. ;-)
