(December 27, 2016): Abe Lyman and His Californians – Horse ‘N Boogie

From the 1941 b-side of the  78rpm 10″,  I Wish I Had a Dime (For Ev’ry Time I Missed You) / Horse ‘N Boogie.  Lyman had a number of hot jazz bands from the early 1920s through the mid-1940s.  From 1937 to 1943 he recorded at least thirty-seven singles for RCA’s Blue Bird label.  You don’t see them anymore, but in the 1930s Abe Lyman’s Brunswick Recording Orchestra did the music for a number of early black and white Merrie Melodies cartoons, including “Smile, Darn Ya, Smile“.
