Same 3 composers for "Farewell" from the same session.
Jailbird by "(D. Bartholmew)" (misspelling).
Lost Weekend is on Knight 2011 (what is this, 45rpm?) & Imp LP 9141.
What is the composer of this title ?

>>> Credit for Smiley Lewis' Real Gone Lover on Imp 5349 is "(Bartholomew, Durand & Robichaux)".
I think that the quotation "Writing credits are sometimes just Dave Bartholomew"
refers to later LP recordings of the tune, merely quoting the best-remembered composer.

In the 1994 postwar blues dg (Leadbitter et al.) Joe Robichaux is listed for the 11 Nov 54 session
(+ Bartholomew-tp, others unk.).
What personnel given in the last (current) issue of the post-war blues discography? Possibly
the one quoted below?
