Thread Name: Delmore Brothers Questions
Subject: RE: Delmore Bothers Questions

There was a dispute about "Brown's Ferry Blues" because the Vagabond's apparently copyrighted the song first. Alton complained and supposedly got the rights back.

I heard that the McGee's also calimed to write it.

I don't this Arthur Smith's Trio should be Delmore Brothers songs. Are they? Here's what I have in my database:
