That is a good question,  David...Ballew's name was on plenty of dates 
around this time so why not this one as well?

I'll take friendly issue with your leaving Miller off the 100 Hot T-Bone 
list...I can think of several sides where he does very well...of course the 
MCBB Victors but also the Nichols Brunswick as by "The Captivators" of 
Building a Nest For Mary...nice little hott-ish solo and it must be his 
arrangement as well.

None of this is to dis Joe Yukl,  who should also be on the Top 100!
