Here's what Lord Online has:

Frank Deniz And His Spirits Of Rhythm : Jimmy Skidmore (ts) Clare Deniz (p) 
Frank Deniz, Joe Deniz (g) Tommy Bromley (b) Tony Lytton (d)
  	London, May 17, 1944
DR-8441	When I grow too old to dream 	De (E)F8456
DR-8442	Soft winds 	  -        , Topic (E)TSCD781 [CD]
DR-8443	A smooth one 	(unissued)

So this one is probably from later in 1944, and seems to have been issued only 
on London. Odd.


DR-8444	Washington whirlygig 	     -
