It is amazing to think of an era when one could name a child Ursula without fearing arrest.

In response to critiques: saw her in Atlanta in late 60s and early 70s: between those two performances she traveled to Africa and became vocal about her anger at America.  It was reflected in her less musical and therefore less entertaining second performance. But then, I heard a lot of hippy-trippy-trailing out to nowhere performances in the 70s as the Movement got battered.  Our energies were spent. We wanted to reinvent ourselves. That's what I hear in her performance.  It took me a while as an audience member not to take it personally.

Great arrangement, and of course, the Keller Sisters are always fun!

This is my very favorite Fats Waller recording. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Tallulah really looks good here as do Berle and Frank.  She had not yet acquired her habit of chewing scenery indiscriminately.

Marion Harris is such a relief after all of the dicty sopranos. She did, however, record her share of "darky" songs before she went for real blues.

Great song and great arrangement that prefigures some of the dreamy work of Glenn Miller's big band a decade later.
