I cannot play it because all I have are the label scans.
I will have to dig out my hard copy of the Paramount master lists (c.
1950 - Record Research associate Walter C. Allen) and check for what I
can find there, if anything. Still, I can't see Paramount cutting a deal
to release a Victor record on their label(s). But stranger things have
happened. I have seen evidence that Gennett contracted with Columbia to
release one or two of their masters, for reasons as yet unknown.
Maybe checking the UCSB Victor database might help?
