I am looking for Blue Devils recordings from the 1920s and 30s that featured Walter Page and other players that would eventually make up Count Basie's band.
Does anyone know if any of these recordings exist, and if so, recommendations?

They only recorded 4 sides to my knowledge. Chronological put them out on a anniversarry set a couple years ago.

They recorded four? I thought it was two sides in 1929. Of course, I could be totally wrong.
