POOR BUTTERFLY TRIO
DUODISC October 15, 1947
Susie Williams - Piano Carlton Smith - Clarinet Bill Baer - Bass Somebody Who Smoked a Big Cigar's Kid - Intro.
Editor's note: side two (at least date-wise) of the one passable acetate disc. I had to convert this from 45 to 78 and there's a glitch at some point in the transmission that lasts for a second or two. Or maybe that's the other recording. Anyway, this is part of the "Joe Fava" related acetates I found in an album at a thrift store. The quality is poor but I guess that's common with these things.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
