Above: Promotional clipping of Boyd Kelly And His Rhythm Rockers from mid-1940's. Does anyone know if this vocal/instrumental grouping ever had any released records? Boyd was with Sweet Dixon in 1937... wonder if Dixon was in The Rhythm Rockers? Does anyone know the members' names?


Above: Label for Decca 7294 recorded on March 17, 1937. Muggin' Boyd Kelly And Sweet Dixon had two recording sessions in 1937 resulting in three releases on Decca's R&B 7000 series. Louis Armstrong's version of the flip, "Marie", was released on Decca three years later, backed by The Mills Brothers.
