Recordings of "Rhapsody in Blue"
By Robbie Rhodes

Douglas Henderson wanted me to assure all that his favourite recording
is by Oscar Levant with the Whiteman Orchestra, possibly produced in
conjunction with the film "The Gershwin Story", starring Robert Alda.
I've not heard of this record; perhaps someone can help me fill in the
details of this list (need recording dates, and LP/CD re-issues):

Feb 1924 Aeolian Hall Concert
May 1925 Duo-Art 68787, Part 2
Jan 1927 Duo-Art 70947, Part 1

  Gershwin/Whiteman Orch, 1924?; Victor 55225 12-inch acoustic
  Gershwin/Whiteman Orch, 1925?: Victor 35882 12" electric, LP: Victor LPV555
  Gershwin (solo), "Andante"; Col. 50107D, 7192M
  Levant/Ormandy, 1930s; LP: Columbia CL700
  Levant/Whiteman Orch?; 1940s; Columbia?
