78s fRom HeLL: Sammy Jonah's Joy Boys - After You've Gone b/w House Party Blues (circa 1948)

In these information-saturated times it's just a bit surprising to find so very little data out there regarding Sammy Jonah, his Joy Boys and accomplices.

Like, zilch. Is there anybody seeing this who can drop a line with some history or background info - - ?

Regardless, this is a cozily bent little party record of some playful and jazzy R&B, and that 'heckling' motif tends to make for choice entertainment whenever it's employed...
