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

Beginning his professional career in Memphis during the Summer of '23, Herman 'Snooks' Friedman organized his "Memphis Stompers" in 1926. In 1928 the band relocated to New York City and 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 of Dave and Max Fleischer.
