If you click on the title of the "B" side ("That's What I Like About The
South"), you'll see that it's taken from an ARA recording (probably
1944). Harris is said to have rerecorded some of the ARA stuff when he
went to Victor. Both titles are also available on Victor 20-2089. The
"A" side ("If You've Ever Been Down In Texas") was also released on
And Harris did record "That's What I Like About The South" as early as
in 1937, but on Vocalion, as you say.
