[78-L] Larry Clinton Question

When I was little (ca. 1960),  I recall that my aunt had one of those Victor 
compilation albums called "Sixty Years of Music America Loves Best."  I 
can't recall all the tracks,  but three stick in my mind:  The Berigan of I 
Can't Get Started...the Crosby of Just a Gigolo...and a Larry Clinton 
version of Dipsy Doodle...no vocal,  but at the end the band guys all holler 
"Look out!"

I've never been able to figure out what the source might be for that track.

Speaking of old compilations...one of the strangest examples of a mystery 
record on any of them is on the Columbia Original Sounds of the 
Twenties...there is a nice electric vocal of Irving Kaufman singing Pagan 
Love Song,  and the album notes indicate it's from a 700 or 800 series 
Harmony.  When I located a copy of the Harmony 78 I was puzzled as it was a 
typical boxy-sounding acoustic.  But years later I found Kaufman's version 
on Romeo...and  discovered  THAT was the source for the track on the 
Columbia set...pretty strange.
