Liner Notes:

This record is the same as "Bourbon Street Pete Fountain - Al Hirt" and has the same catalog number and back cover as the other LP by Trolley Car Records. Both versions are hard to find, this version more difficult to find. It has the same 5 tracks by Pete Fountain, 5 by Al Hirt, Louis Armstrong appears on one track. Not sure the story behind the two covers or the actual release year. I did some research and narrowed it down the best I could. Mixture of live and studio music. The recordings are from the early part of Pete's career.
