Larry Clinton - Down Home Rag HMV AU
Here's another by the Forgotton bandleader Larrt Clinton
the old tune "Down Home Rag" must have been pretty popular at the time as a few bandleaders recorded it one after another or it was cheap on the copyright to record. Hence the "swinging the classics" that was abundant at the time (and around the ASAP ban)
But this version is quite good, In Fact better than Tommy Doresys who's version outsold this one.
Again 3 different restorations for your Perusal.
The Label photo is not the best, and I don't have it anymore so its the best I can come up with !
