This upload is a request; this song was chosen for the superb vocal by Ethel Shutta (1896-1976) who was an American actress and singer, who came to prominence through her performances on Jack Benny's radio show, her role in the early Eddie Cantor musical Whoopee! and her Broadway comeback in Follies at the age of 74. She debuted on Broadway in The Passing Show of 1922, and then in a series of Florenz Ziegfeld productions including Louis the 14th and Whoopee! In 1926 she married bandleader George Olsen. They divorced in 1936. She continued to work on her own as a singer, while her ex-husband opened a restaurant in New Jersey. Shutta returned to Broadway in 1963 in the unsuccessful musical Jennie, which starred Mary Martin. Subsequent work was difficult to find, and Shutta used alcohol to get herself through the rough spots. Her final comeback was at the age of 73 in the original Broadway production Follies (1971-1972). This lovely song was recorded in 1932.

Most welcome, B; I'm delighted you enjoyed this Shutta song I happily presented to you. I also believe Hanshaw was definitely more versatile but but nevertheless Shutta left us a lot of lovely performances too.

Thanks so much for this P. This is such relaxing music~the variety you can lisen to for hours. I can see why she was second only to Annette Hanshaw in popularity during the 1929-35 period; America's and the worlds best. This is my first time to hear her voice and what a surprise and treat!
