Country Club #9: right or wrong

Here's a jam on "Right or Wrong"bringing together two generations of western swing and  featuring the legendary Johnny Gimble (discography from allmusic.com) with the Hot Club of Cowtown (discography from allmusic.com. I've head some great live performances by the Hot Club of Cowtown at Winfield's Walnut Valley Festival and at other venues, but never anything to equal this.

I always assumed "Right or Wrong" was a Bob Wills or, least, western swing song,but it is actually a pop/jazz ballad from the 1920s. Versions by Wills and others western swingers played only the chorus,

dropping the verses.
