Dear Jack (and Stan),
Almost spot on.
It is in Lord.
Recorded in London in September 1917.
However, Lord does not include any reissues.
It is on Document DOCD-5623 'The Earliest Black String Bands'.
I have it on a French Jazz Time ODJB CD.
It can also be heard here:
Thank you for that link. Very interesting, especially to hear the second or B strain of Yellow Dog Blues in the middle of St Louis Blues in 1917.
Thus, when was Yellow Dog Blues written, by whom and first recorded?
Inquiring minds want to know...
