"Twelfth Street Rag" was composed in 1914.

I forgot to correct this before I hit the <send> button.
Tracks 13 - 24 are from a Pee Wee Hunt LP called 'Twenties' Style'
which I have on an EMI 'Regal' LP.
Most likely sourced from Capitol, as there was an Australian EMI/
Capitol tie-up at this time.
So, it probably has no connection to the Fingers/Pee Wee LPs.
In the meantime, I checked these 'easy-listening-dixie' sides.
Certainly no Joe 'Fingers' Carr there.
