Vernon Dalhart

Thought your readers might be seeing multiple names for the Prisoner's Song. Vernon Dalhart used over 100 pseudonyms to record over 5,000 78 rpm singles; among the names he adopted were Frank Evans, Vernon Dale, Tobe Little, Bob White, Hugh Lattimer, Sid Turner, and Al Craver - often attributed to the Prisoner's Song.

Interesting.

We have some entries from Frank Evans but since they are from 1981 (and in Belgium) we're quite certain its not the same person.

None of the other aliases occur in any of the charts we have.
