Thread Name: Lyr Add: Ace in the Hole (several songs)
Subject: Ace in the hole
Listening to 2 different Beryl Bryden versions of Ace in the hole I noticed one was attributed to Cole Porter from the 1941 show Let's Face it and the other to "Trad-Dave Stewart".
Her version of the Boy from New Orleans, which she was "given" by Louis Armstrong and adapted slightly after he died, is also given different attribution on 2 different cuts: to "Trad,-Beryl Bryden" and to "Roberts/Katz/Thiele!" (the tune is "the Saints"). Just an example of the Copyright minefield that other threads have touched on.
I don't really need to know which is right!
