  • Title Note: Victor ledgers, some disc labels, and an entry in the U.S. Copyright Office files credit Sammy Lowe and Jimmy Mitchell as songwriters. A handwritten note on the Victor blue history card states “change slugs for future 1/31/[19]44 to (Unger-Bernie-Johnson-Arr. By Sammy Lowe)." Later Victor 20-2283 and 30-0813 disc labels, examples found on the BHC verso, present the altered songwriter credits. A second copyright claim confirms the modified credits.
