Early Pete Fountain with Sharkey's Dixieland Band. Pete played off and on with Sharkey's band. In the 1950's, Sharkey's band constantly changed musicians. I've post some of Sharkey's Southland records already, and will post a few more of interest. The other 45 they did together on Arcadia is the 45 RPM Arcadia Records #108 with "Baby, Baby" as the featured song. (Which I will post soon) If you know of any other Arcadia records, or if a 12" or 10" records was ever released on Arcadia, please e-mail me.
