Above Left: This is the first of two releases on Philadelphia's Gotham label by The Dixieaires, both in 1948. This group also had releases on Exclusive (1948-49), Lenox (1948-49) and Coleman (1948). Most, but not all, of these records were gospel.

Above Right: The Dixiaires (notice slight change in spelling, but same group as above) had at least five releases on Continental, a NYC label known mostly for their polka records.
