Aren't we forgetting something?

by James E.Parten

On August 2, 1934, Marion Harris cut a vocal version of "Singin' The Blues" for Decca (matrix TB 1461-2, issued on Decca F.5160.

This is the version on which Miss Harris sang special lyrics set to first Bix's solo, then to Tram's--without singing any of Con Conrad's lyrics.
This, some eighteen years before the advent of Eddie Jefferson or King Pleasure.
