Above: Vocalion 4068 was recorded on 3/19/38 and Vocalion 4125 was recorded on 5/11/38. They were both released in May 1938. The Charioteers are not on the flip side of either.
The Charioteers recorded for Decca (1935), Vocalion/Brunswick (1938-39), and Columbia/Okeh (1939-49) before Billy Williams left the group in 1950.
