John Nelson, aka Sleepy Hall was a banjo player who went to Yale, in 1924. He led the Yale Banjo Club, entertained with his band there and also toured. Rudy Vallée also was in his band at one time and recorded with Hall.  He had an exceptional custom-made banjo made for him by Bacon Banjo Co. However, these credits seem to be totally unrelated to the present recording. Sleepy Hall was a pseudonym used by studio bands led by Adrian Schubert or Victor Young. Many times however, like is also the case for this record, the musicians were strictly anonymous. Actually, the only identifiable musician is vocalist Elmer Feldkamp. This lovely recording was made in 1931.

Thank you Jack! I'm happy to read you enjoyed this rendition. In 1931 the Depression was extremely harsh...

Very nice. Everyone was being paid under the table or doing a favor for someone's "brother-in-law." Money was tight in the 1931 economy.
