. . . a cross-section of the requests that Perry Como sings on his weekly TV show. The style is relaxed, the backgrounds
( by a section of the Mitchell Ayres' orchestra known during the recording sessions as "Como's Little Combo" )
are light and easy, and Perry's singing is, as always, superb.
Notes: ~ this song was first recorded by the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, Jelly Roll Morton on piano (Gennett), 1923.
Popularized by Ted Lewis and His Orchestra (Columbia) and pianist Art Gillham (Columbia). It was revived by Tiny Hill
and his Orchestra in 1939, who recorded it (Vocalion) and used it as his theme song. Kay Starr had a popular recording
of this song in 1951 with Dave Cavanaugh's Orchestra on the Capitol label.
