 Allan Sherman parodied the A-side and called it

"Grow Mrs. Goldfarb"

 Hi mickey. I've hyperlinked your link.
When adding a comment you click the icon with a little chain on it (links - geddit?). The dialogue box that calls up is self-explanatory.

 " ... walk away ..." - not at all, Mickey. That's the fun (and the harmless fascination with it all). Thanks vm for the info.

 Harley Luse is an elusive bugger. I thought I'd have another nibble at this and see if this record had been mentioned in Billboard. Well, it was, in the March 17 1951 issue (page 126), as part of a huge listing of the most popular songs of the previous 50 years. "Glow Worm" is an oldie, probably recorded by everyman and his dog . I can't imagine Luse's version was ever known beyond Los Angeles square dances but it's included in the list. Unfortunately page 126 of the online scans is missing so I can't tell you more. However the brief google message gives the Imperial 78 cat. number (1044) AND the 45 number (6044), so it was available on 45 by (at the latest) March 1951, so very early indeed. Now I'll walk away and try and get a life.

 A serious Harley Luse collector is to be found at http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2011/01/harley-luse-and-the-blue-ridge-mountain-boys.html. BTW how do I post an active link? Does 45cat support HTML? You'll have to forgive me, I'm old you see...

 Yeah ... I was looking at their issue too, Keith, just to see how the 'A' was titled ('The Glow-Worm', as you will have seen), as it was odd the way the words were run together here.

 The Mills Brothers had Glowworm in the charts in 1952...I'll date this one from the same year

 This one dates from the very early 1950s and is a 45 issue of Imperial 78 no.1044 in the "Folk Dance" series. There were at least 200 78s issued in the 1000 series from 1948 onwards and about half of these were repressed as 45s in the 6000 series. There was also a "Mexican Series" with about 500(!) releases on 78. Lew Chudd was interested in "folk" music in the late 40s be4 he got into C&W and blues/R&B.

 Not sure what to make of this one? Could this be part of an album perhaps? Weird Cat # and Logo combination.
