Harry Beasley Smith VS Harry Bache Smith

The jazz standard “The sheik of Araby” is reported by roon as composed by

Harry Beasley Smith / Ted Snyder / Francis Wheeler

see on allmusic

BUT in Wikipedia

we have that he should be Harry B. Smith (ie Harry Bache Smith)

same infos also on discogs
it seems that a Harry Beasley Smith does not even exist.
there is a (John) Beasley Smith

strangly enough, allmusic / roon has also a bio

missing of date birth for comparison, though.

so, really, i don’t know who is right… but wiki+discosg wins over rovi 2 to 1

Hi @Niccolo_Terzi,

I have reached out to our metadata provider and requested they make a change here. I’ll keep you updated once we hear from them.

Thanks for the report.

@dylan, sorry to say this, but in my library nothing changed.
