Thank you for the information.
My source is a typed update to Arthur Knights discography (RECORD COLLECTOR),
compiled by Kitty Fassett (1988) held in the YALE UNIVERSITY Library.
Is there a matrix assigned to O LE' ME SHINE, or is it on the same plate as
HEAR DE LAMBS ? Are there any other titles in the session?
I will use the Spring 1936 date in the discography I am compiling, unless someone
has better information.
If I can get some of the other questions answered, I will post the updated
list to ARSC and 78 lists.
Best wishes, Thomas.

The dates for these do not show up in the documentation on hand for
the Victor discography being undertaken by University of Calif., Santa
Barbara. We do have a bit of information. The prefixes are "BS-T,"
indicating that they were tests, or trials. Also, Ted Fagan's and Bill
Moran's notes indicate that they were recorded in Koussevitzky's
office. We have no documentation to confirm that, however. I'm
curious, how do you know that they were recorded in 1935? The numbers
fit more comfortably into the spring, 1936 range.
