[ARSCLIST] Musicraft Records

Over on the Ballad-L list, there's a discussion about the Musicraft label, and the 1940 Josh White session that included sides released (with Sidney Bechet) on Blue Note, and others (with Bechet) on Musicraft.

Can anybody here cast any light on that session or on Musicraft in general that I can relay to the Ballad-L folks? Who produced the Josh White session and why was it split between the two labels? Why did Musicraft move from anonymous classical recordings to folk music and blues? Any other useful history or anecdotes?
