On the Banks of the Wabash

"On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away" was recorded in 1940. https://searchworks.stanford.edu/view/7938799

It was never a hit, that's why its not listed

"On the Banks of the Wabash River, Far away"

This was a ballad that the Mills Brothers sang to popular acclaim. It's omitted from the list, but does anyone know the quartet sang it at at what date?

When did the Mills Brothers record and release "Moonlight and Roses"? I have the track but I'm trying to put a year to it.

They never had a hit with it, that's why its not listed here. Its not listed in the standard sites, such as Discogs.

However the song was a hit for other artists in 1925, 1945, 1954, 1965 and 1971. Given when the Mills Brothers were active we would guess 1945.

In what year did the Mills Brothers record and release "Home"? I have thetrack but I want to give it a year.

Since it was not a hit we don't have an entry for it.

We looked in a few places (Discogs etc) but it doesn't seem to be listed.
