Indeed, Cary's date may be right -- C-119 is "The Park Avenue Hillbillie"
which was definitely not issued until 1947. These sets are a little strange
because they mostly use older masters and do not seem to have been issued
in strictly chronological sequence. C-54, "Rhumba with Cugat," was issued
before the end of World War II, and consists of records made mostly in 1940.
