An earlier, partial chronology.

by Albert Haim

I gave the chronological listing of the first five recordings of the tune

Hoagy Carmichael and His Pals 10/31/1927
Chocolate Dandies (McKinneys Cotton Pickers) 10/13/1928
Mills Merry Makers 11/08/1928 (A typo in the original posting: 1929 instead of 1928)
Irving Mills and His Hotsy Totsy Gang 09/20/1929
Isham Jones and His Orchestra 05/16/1930

You missed the 1929 version. Otherwise, your list is fine.

I would add
Wayne King February 20, 1931
Ben Selvin Apr 22, 1931
Victor Young May 22, 1931
