The correct matrix of "The Moon Song" by Wayne King and his Orchestra is C 504-1. 13 January 1933 is indeed the correct date. I have a copy or two of Brunswick 6474 and can transfer it for you if needed.

Can't help with the Joe Green Columbia but I might have the Van Alexander Varsity; will have to check. Date would be closer to October 1939 than January (in January '39 he would have been on Bluebird).

Take care,
