Of course this band had no geographical connection with the state of Alabama and the name was doubtless contrived to compete with groups such as the popular Original Memphis Five, who, as with the California Ramblers, were primarily based in New York City. The Babies' first recording session was to produce a cover of "Arkansas" (featured on this CD), a then-current best seller for Red McKenzie's Mound City Blues Blowers, plus two popular songs from 1924, "Hard Hearted Hannah" and "Tessie! Stop Teasing Me," also featured here. The music on this 26 track CD was recorded in New York from July 24th, 1924 to June 24th, 1927.
