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, depending who was available.

The other 45 they did together on Arcadia #107 with "Abbeville Our Abbeville" as the featured song. If you know of any other Arcadia records, or if a 12" or 10" records was ever released on Arcadia, please e-mail me.
