Blackie & her Boys - the answer

Thanks to Han E. the question about te Blackie & her Boys record seems to be solved.
The recording was made in Buenos Aires 18 Dec. 1934 when Oscar Aleman was not in Buenos Aires but in France.

He tells:

Par F-660 was auctioned on ebay ca 14 May this year. It was said to include Aleman.
I then checked Bruyninckx CD discography, which is copied below. No Aleman shown, but Alberto Barras-g.
Then I checked the Aleman disco, which did not list it and I got the impression that Oscar could not be in Argentina in 1935, and I assumed Aleman's presence was a trick to sell the record. And so I did not send Hans Koert a message about it.

Bruyninckx gives the following information about BLACKIE and het BOYS:
