I'm sorry I missed this post. Is there audience noise on the performances? If so my guess would be a Meadowbrook performance June 7th although the discography does not show this to be a Lang-Worth Transcription. I have to wonder if it does not contain crowd noise if it could be from the below, which was a Soundies session (Prehistoric MTV like video)

Gene Krupa
Roy Eldridge (tp,vcl) Norman Murphy, Al Beck, Graham Young (tp) John Grassi, Jay Kelliher, Babe Wagner (tb) Mascagni "Musky" Ruffo (as) Sam Musiker (cl,as) Jimmy Migliori (as) Walter Bates (ts) Sam Listengart (as) Milt Raskin (p) Ray Biondi (g,arr) Ed Mihelich (b) Gene Krupa (d) Johnny Desmond, Anita O'Day (vcl) Leroy Elton Hill, Jimmy Mundy (arr)
Soundies film soundtracks, RCA Studios, New York, December 18, 1941
Let me off uptown (aod,re vcl) Kaydee KD7, Stash ST-104
Thanks for the boogie ride (aod,re vcl)
Sugar Hill masquerade [After you've gone](aod vcl)
Note: "Let me off uptown" as "Uptown" on Stash ST-104.
Kaydee KD7 titled "Swinging flicks, Volume one"; rest of this LP by others.
Stash ST-104 titled "Tea pad songs" and lists date incorrectly as January 1942; rest of this LP by others.

I'd like to ask you a question about Lang-Worth Transcriptions. I've found the track list on a Circle CD, and I'd like to know when the titles (that you haven't listed) Let Me Off Uptown, Things I Love (sung by Howard Dulany) and Thanks For The Boogie Ride, were recorded.
