In cases where no vocalist is present, keen-eared listeners might be able to distinguish between the two bands. Given the presence of Johnny Morris, however, it’s a dead giveaway that it’s Paul Specht’s band in the case of “Waitin’ for Katy” on Harmony 639-H. The DAHR site has it right.
There was overlap primarily because of the cooperation that existed
between Specht and Kemp. Paul really launched Hal, who, I understand,
was working the Atlantic ships in the early 20's with Paul's
sponsorship. Paul sent him to Europe in 1924.
If someone has a copy of the record, I would buy it if reasonable.
