Here is a Ted Weems record from 1929.
Almost every recording I have heard of “The Man From The South” has featured a really outstanding arrangement. This version is no exception – and is quite “hot” as far as Ted Weems records go.
“Harmonica Harry” is a novelty song which was a sequel to and, no doubt, an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of another novelty recording Weems made earlier in the year, “Piccolo Pete,” which became a big hit for the band.
