*"Yea Alabama" was composed by Ethelred Lundy Sykes.

Beginning his professional career as a percussionist in Memphis during the Summer of 1923, Herman "Snooks" Friedman organized his "Memphis Stompers" in 1926. In 1928 the band relocated to New York City and once there expanded to ten pieces.

The group recorded between 1928 and 1931 releasing discs under various pseudonyms, and would also provide music for the first cartoon shorts with sound including those produced by Dave and Max Fleischer.
