This is the first Bailey's Lucky Seven record I ever heard. I bought it years ago on the recommendation of record collector as "Hot". And, I think he is right. Still my favorite Bailey's Lucky Seven record.

I like this song! I have the same tune on a Brunswick record.

That is really hard to look at :cry: :cry:
I'm assuming it's been razed by now?

Well, at least part of the building has been saved and restored. It is now used for many things. The Gennett organization raised money and has quite a nice thing going. Here is a picture from 2006 of the restored portion of the complex. Check out http://www.starrgennett.org/ for more info on Gennett today.

Dan, that's a great version of that tune. I have this by essentially the same band as "Lanin's Red Heads" on a very early Columbia Flag electric 376-D recorded in May 1925, a couple weeks after the Gennett version.

Don't know if you're aware but both bands are Lanin units with Red Nichols, Miff Mole, and Vic Berton.

Here's a vid on You Tube, although this is the more common black label issue.

George,

Thanks for the link and the info. I don't know a lot about this music or these bands. Just what I am learning as I research using the internet and what books I have access to. It is amazing how similar the arrangement is. Based on what you said it is likely mostly the same players and arrangement. Fun to hear a different opening. So many of the Gennett bands were, at least the core players, more or less the same band with other players added in as needed. Very interesting to learn about all this stuff.
