Notes
Source(s): Rigler-Deutsch Index.
Johnson and Shirley note that while Fred Hall organized the sessions at which masters 151228-151233 were recorded, "it is quite possible that there was such a musician as Ford Britten."
Columbia matrix card indicates that the Western Electric system was used on this master, but W does not appear in the wax.
