August 21st in Gennett History…

1921: Ladd’s Black Aces recorded  “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate” in NYC.  It appeared on Gennett 4938 and Starr-Gennett 9288.  The track featured Phil Napoleon (c), Miff Mole (tb), Jimmy Lytell (cl), Frank Signorelli (p) and Jack Roth (d).

1928: Lottie Kimbrough recorded “Lost Lover Blues” in Richmond.  The recording appeared on Gennett 6607, Champion 15591, Superior 2717, and Supertone 9286.  In addition to Kimbrough (v), the track features Winston Holmes (v) and Miles Pruitt (g).  As an aside, this is one of my favorite Gennett recordings, so much so, that I asked Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart to record a version of it on my Gennett tribute album.
