Dear Steve,
As you would expect, I have the Retrieval CD  (RTR 79031) 'The Complete Set 1922-1925" used for the iTunes Store compilation.
The spelling for "Milenberg Joys" for both versions of the tune on the Retrieval CD is the same. 
The alternative spelling for Song 22 "Milenburg Joys" on the iTunes list is their typo.
And no one disputes that "Milenberg Joys" (Gennett) = "Golden Leaf Strut" (Okeh)
The recording date for both are as follows:
"Milenberg Joys",	18 July 1923
   and 18 months later 
"Golden Leaf Strut"	23 January 1925 
Kind regards,
