> Second that...in fact, very late 1940. Album No. 188 is Decca 3529/31 plus 1043 (Decca commonly assembled albums with old catalog numbers, didn't bother to assign a new one). The preceding single, Decca 3528, was recorded 9 November 1940. Other catalog numbers in the vicinity are also from reissue albums.
