Fantastic, and not on either of the K.W. compilations that I have. Noted to add Ervin to list #2.

Ervin Rouse (sometimes aka Erwin Rouse) - born one hundred years ago today

I can't find online anywhere the original 1939 recording of 'Orange Blossom Special' by the Rouse Brothers (Ervin, Gordon, & Jack) for Bluebird Records; but a later 1953 re-recording for DeLuxe Records is available -

The original ‘Sweeter than the Flowers’ by Moon Mullican (1948) - Ervin signed away two-thirds of the composers credit on his song to “Morry Burns” (aka Moon Mullican) and Lois Mann (the wife of King Records’ Syd Nathan)

Mike, that says 1948 but it seems to me to be a re-recording taken from a Bear Family CD of Moon Mullican's Coral and Decca recordings, and originally I guess on a 1958 LP "Moon Over Mullican"

Whereas this YT posting claims to be from 1958, but it is, I think the 1948 (or late 1947) King Records version -

But to further confuse matters there was also a 'Sweeter than the Flowers No.2 ....'?

Thanks Mike, never heard of them before - they seem to have had the earlier version of No.2 which Moon Mullican later covered (I guess Boyett who added his or her name to the credits was responsible for the sequel). They possibly specialised in songs of a tragic nature -
