Authorship[edit]

The song is listed as written by "La Rocca / Edwards / Ragas / Sbarbaro / Shields / Da Costa" -- is there any reason the attribution should be doubted? That would be Nick LaRocca, Eddie Edwards, Henry Ragas, Tony Sbarbaro, Larry Shields, and Harry Da Costa; the first five of those are the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, who created the song. --jpgordon∇∆∇∆ 18:02, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

I expanded on this point some. -- Infrogmation 14:56, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Louisiana State University Fight Song[edit]

The LSU Band web site (http://www.bands.lsu.edu/lsu_cd/index.php) lists Fight for LSU as the offical fight song. Someone may wish to check this fact.

You're right, though the sentence is technically correct. I'll clarify the sentence. --75.179.159.4 02:53, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Tiger Rag: The Bible of LSU Sports[edit]

Besides the fact that this section REEKS of self-promotion, does it even belong in this article? Jklharris (talk) 00:55, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

"Experts have proven"[edit]

I revised the wording of the phrase reading "but experts have proven that "Tiger Rag" was worked out by the Jack Carey Band". Mark Sublette objected, saying "you are changing text in a DIRECT QUOTE from the source". I have no objection to including a direct quotation IF it is clear that it is a direct quotation-- contained within quotation marks and the person who said the quote clearly identified in the text. Without that, the text gives the false impression that Wikipedia is saying that "experts have proven..." and that the matter is unambiguously resolved to universal satisfaction of all who have seriously looked into the matter. With all due respect, Sam Chartres is certainly an important writer on early jazz, but a review of publications will find other experts who disagree with Chartres on various points.
