Original recordings from the collections of Werner Benecke, Günter Boas, Roger Misiewicz, Johnny Parth, Tom Tsotsi.

Considering the extreme rarity of the original 78s, condition is generally better than might be hoped, but it must be borne in mind that only one or two copies are known to exist of some titles.

Discographical details from Blues And Gospel Records 1902 - 1943 by John Godrich and Robert Dixon (third edition, Storyville 1982).
