    LOL. I saw where on one site, someone suggests that that was supposed to be the actual title for Big Bend Gal, but I believe that's wrong. The 1927 recording was mis-labeled "Big Ben Gal" - and I believe that's the way Sammy Shelor spelled it at the top of the lyric sheet he wrote out. He wasn't a spelling teacher
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.
