I'm not surprised

by Mark Gabrish Conlan

I'm not surprised at Red Nichols' bitterness that he was never paid for the version of "My Gal Sal" that wasn't issued. A lot of record contracts in that period said that the artist would only be paid a set fee per "issued" side, and wouldn't get anything for any recording that wasn't actually released.
