All I know about the resp. artist's / label's musical output is shown on this page. To purchase out-of-print records I recommend an ebay, gemm or google search.

In 1930 thousands of cases of muscle pain, weakness of upper and lower extremities, and minimal sensory impairment occured in the United States. The illness was caused by the consumption of an adulterated Jamaica ginger extract ("Jake"), an illicit beverage then popularly used in the southern and midwestern United States to circumvent prohibition statutes...victims with resultant gait impairment, sometimes permanent, were said to have "Jake Leg" or "Jake Walk".
