On this day in 1925, Clara Smith recorded "I'm Tired Of Bein' Good" in New 
York City for Columbia Records.

On this day in 1943, a union-led two-year ban on instrumental recordings 
came to an end for most record companies after they agreed to pay royalties 
into a union fund for all records released. The Victor and Columbia labels 
held out against the agreement for another year. The American Federation of 
Musicians recording ban protested the lack of a royalty system to 
compensate musicians for use of their recordings on radio programs and 
jukeboxes.
