Yes I made a mistake. It certainly is (was) a Varsity. I do have a very 
rough copy.
This story has a happy ending. Bix Eiben at Jazz Museum Bix Eiben, 
Hamburg has decided to sell me his E copy. He is offering at less than I 
paid for the broken one, though shipping will be high.
I am down to only one title missing now, Varsity 8406 Will Osborne, East 
Dubuque Breakdown/Lou Breese, Breezin' Along With The Breeze.
