Another long time lurker comes out of hiding.

First recorded Oct 31 1927 on the Gennett label in Richmond, IN, it was Star
Dust.  Two words.  In 1929 when Mitchell Parish was hired to provide words,
it became a one word title, Stardust.  Complete information can be found in
the book "Jelly Roll, Bix and Hoagy:Gennett Studios and the Birth of
Recorded Jazz"  by Rick Kennedy.  Also there you will find lyrics written by
Hoagy in 1928, but never recorded.
