It's also on Varsity 6008. The Joe Davis is actually a very good dub and 
there's a vinyl test which labels it as Joe Davis but uses the same stampers as 
the Varsity, which is an adequate transfer but has surface noise. (I found a 
Paramount, no Broadway..Decca reissued a few of this group's discs using the 
Broadway label and matrix numbers.)
