Subject: RE: Van Ronk's Early Jugband lp
Another DVR album featuring a band was "Dave Van Ronk and the Red Onion Jazz Band." I think at least one of the above posts refers to this recording.
I've never owned a copy and it's been many years since I listened to it ~ as best as I can recall, it was Dave performing songs from the ragtime/Dixieland side of his repertoire backed by a trad-jazz-type ensemble (probably trumpet, trombone, clarinet, tenor banjo, drums, and either a tuba/sousaphone or a string bass fiddle).
