Subject: RE: Origins: Wandering (Early and Late)
Newspaper databases turn up a number of ads for Smith's "Wandering Blues" sheet music in 1917-19.
"Wandering Blues" was published in Dallas.
Surprisingly the only "Enrique Smith" of the period who seems to have made it into the news was "Miss Enrique Smith," a very prominent socialite of Waco, Texas, which is halfway between Dallas and Austin.
Surely it wasn't her...
