That Lucky Old 3 Suns


Sometimes, you just get lucky. One of the Three Suns tracks that I shared with you recently came from a budget label 10", leaving me to wonder for a while where it actually originated. And today I stumbled across a 78 that gives me the answer. This Majestic label 78, number 7142, came out in 1945, right after the war, and features Busy Holiday on one side and Flower Dance on the other. Both sides feature a writing credit to Nevins-Dunn-Nevins aka The Three Suns. So now I know where my track came from. And in case you're wondering, I believe the F.T. stands for foxtrot.

Might the flip be a version of "Waltz of the Flowers" from the Nutcracker? Don't hold out on us, Ernie!
