Freezone used it too, in 1929.

Good thing he got it in there. Not like he had another chance.  :D

Artist names another artist presend at the recording session:

Butterbeans and Susie, "You Know Why Your Mama Has The Blues", New York City, 1926.

Butterbeans:  "Say, Sue, who is that playin' them blues like that?"
Susie:  "Say, Butter, don't you know who that is?"
Butterbeans:  "No, who is it?"
Susie:  "That boy is Eddie Heywood from Atlanta Georgia from 81 Decatur Street."

Probably the references to baseball players could go in here, artist references 3rd party.

Them women all call Babe Ruth the Homerun King, now don't you know how he got that name? Boys, he hit the right lick, yes he hit the right lick. I declare he hit the right lick, and he carried that bacon home - Big Bill Broonzy, You've Got To Hit The Right Lick

There are others in the baseball thread: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?amp;Itemid=60&topic=4328.0

It's been a while, but...

A pair of artists reference each other:  Train Number 44 by Lee Green

Lee Green: "Why hello there, Roosevelt."
Roosevelt Sykes:  "Why hello there Lee Green."

I haven't read the whole thread - forgive me if it's already been mentioned but Little Bro Montgomery mentions Monkey Joe in one of his recordings.

..also, talking of Roosevelt Sykes, he does that version of Stump Johnson's 'Bury That Thing' - both mention Stump's brother Jesse (who qualifies as an artiste thanks to his bizarre 'I Wish I Had Died In Egyptland')
