In fact Album 183, Anthology of White Jazz, has 2-41 as the printing date on
the booklet, so a bit later in 1941 for 188. (Hands up, all those who own Decca
Album 187, Cecil Leeson playing a Sonata for Saxophone by Edvard Moritz. What,
am I the only one?)

The preceding single, Decca 3528, was recorded 9 November 1940. Other catalog numbers in the vicinity are also from reissue albums.
