This pseudonym was usually used for the late Golden Gate Orchestra, but in this case it is directly referring to a band led by. This may look confusing but, since Kirkeby was the initiator of the Golden Gate Orchestra besides recording under a series of aliases (Ted Wallace, Ed L(l)oyd and others), it should not surprise listeners those credits were often used along and for each other. Ed Kirkeby (1891-1978), who was a band leader, vocalist, manager, and salesman, best remembered as the manager of Fats Waller. He was one of the first recording managers at Columbia Records to record jazz and organized the California Ramblers to record it. Over the years he also managed the Pickens Sisters. As Fats Waller’s manager he also acted as his archivist building a collection which is held today by the Institute of Jazz Studies. After Waller’s death in 1943 Kirkeby remained active managing many other groups and musicians. This wonderful recording was made in 1929. The delicate lead vocal is by Elmer Feldkamp. It should be noted Kirkeby also recorded this song in another arrangement and featuring a vocal trio including Elmer Feldkamp, Kirkeby himself and a third unknown vocalist as "Ted Wallace & His Campus Boys". Both recordings were made in 1931.
