by Uncle Dave Lewis
The euphonistically named Dixie Daisies were not so much a name as a catch all pseudonym for a variety of groups that recorded for the Cameo Record Corporation. Cameo, and its even cheaper sister label Lincoln, was a bargain imprint marketed through S.S. Kresge stores. When the name was first used in 1922 it was applied to records made by a group similar to The Memphis Five, and this applies to most if not all of the Dixie Daisies records made through 1925.

In 1926 Cameo merged with Pathé and from that point the identity of the groups maketed under the name "Dixie Daisies" becomes a complex issue that is still in the process of being untangled. The name persisted until 1928, when Cameo, Pathé and several other dime store lables were sucked into the American Record Corporation. A young Benny Goodman can be heard playing on some of the very last records as issued under the name of the Dixie Daisies.
