I used to have a fine Decca 78 which had High Society on one side and I forget what was on the other. It was labelled as by the Mound City Blue
Blowers, but was actually by a small group from the Crosby band with a front line of Yank Lawson and Eddie Miller.
Eddie played the traditional solo with a beautiful soft approach, like Ernie Caceres and Matty Matlock.
(Humphrey Lyttelton played with Matty Matlock once and said that he couldn't believe how quietly he played.
Absolutely dependent on the microphone).
