The Washboard Rhythm Band and the Washboard Rhythm Kings share much the same personnel, only the vocalists differ, with 'Taft Jordan' doing his upmost Louis Armstrong impression. There's a few extra performers with the 'Kings', with 'Dave Page' back on vocals, business as usual with a rather strange take on 'Nobody's Sweetheart', in which Page starts the song in the wrong perspective (I'm nobody's sweetheart now..?), realises the rest of the refrain will make no sense and scats his way to the end! Williams' Washboard Band on the other hand have only trombonist 'John Haughton' in their line-up from the other bands featured. It's a much more hokum based band with the kind of innuendo that never really stood the test of time!! Still, It's all good.
