Rare Bands 1926-1931 (Vol. 6) (Historical Records)

Historical is a label founded by Arnold S. Kaplan in 1965. He was also the owner of Biograph Records, founded in the early 1960s which was one of the first to issue records made from piano rolls by Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin and George Gershwin from the 1910s and 1920s. Excellent tunes and one of my favorite center labels.
