In my Rust, 5th edition, Hindustan is also listed
as a recording of Dan and Harvey's Jazz Band,
London, late April 1919. The is recording is on
the CD "The Original Dixieland Jazz Band In
England" , Jazz Time 36. From about 1990 I think.
What they play is the real Hindustan, including the verse.
The line-up is rather unknow: Dan Kildare-p/ ?vn/ ?bj/ ?d.
Another old one is from the Savoy Quartet, May 29, 1919, Hayes, Middlesex.
Joe Wilbur-bj/ Emil Grimshaw-bj/ Claude Ivy-p/ Alec Williams-d.
I don't have this recording.
According to the listings of Rust, it could be
that Hindustan came from England to the USA.
