Subject: RE: Joe Venuti's (in)Famous Practical Joke!
Also if you have a modern restored version of Venuti with Bix doing the novelty version of Barnacle Bill The Sailor, at the end of the song (the type that record companies liked them to do for the popular market, but not what the musicians wanted to play) you can hear perfectly clearly now what was only a muddy sound on the original as Venuti sings the song out with "It's Barnacle Bill the shithead".
