Dear List Mates,

Cab Calloway is purported to be the first, or among the first, to  
record the song "Birth of the Blues".  However, I can't seem to find  
such a recording by him in Rust or anywhere else I have looked. Was  
the recording perhaps not under his name, or at least not with him as  

I'm hoping someone on this great list must know the answer.

Thanks in advance for your help.
