Track B3 is a fragment (a few seconds) of a choir singing the end of a song.
Track B4 is a fragment of Ducastaing unaccompanied reciting the lyrics to "My Man", the song made famous by Billie Holiday.
According to genealogy sources Gloria Ducastaing was married to guitarist Wilbur Wynne who played with Johnnie Pate a little later. Could he possibly be guitarist "Breeze" on this acetate?
If this acetate was indeed recorded at Chicago's Club DeLisa as the handwriting suggests, this possibly happened at a time when the club was empty – there is no audience to be heard.
