Originally a violinist, Ben Selvin probably made more records than any other bandleader from the late 1910's through the 1930's. After his recording career he remained active in record business as artistic director till the 1960's. This outstanding record was made in 1930, with a vocal by Eddie Walters, who is yet another of those totally forgotten artists. He was a vocalist and ukulele player who was briefly popular on radio and records in the late 1920s and early 1930s. On records he cut about 10 sides under his own name and performed in recording sessions with Ben Selvin and other studio bands. Any additional biographical information about him is warmly welcomed.
