 "Novelty Instrumental" - indeed, to a British audience it certainly would have been. As for Piano Red, his UK HMV 78 of "Let's Have A Good Time Tonight" must've sold a few copies. I turned up more than one copy here in Australia in the '60s when 78s were still common in secondhand shops. Or maybe they were actually Aussie pressings? Anyway, that non-threatening goodtimey sound would have easily slipped under the radar in the same way Fats Waller managed to do it in an earlier era.

 The 2nd UK R&B 45, after Piano Red's Jan '53 one

Great crazy R&B Harmonica instro, odd how it went as a Pop record unaware of it's Blues R&B roots

 'Hootin' Blues' was a Two Way Family Favourites 'favourite' in the early 50s.
