Staggeringly prolific Adrian Schubert was not a bandleader in the usual sense, since he rather was a musical director, working with dozens of outfits under equally numerous pseudonyms, merely for recording purposes. He did hire many top musicians though (trumpeter Mike Mosiello, trombonist Tommy Dorsey, saxophonist Jimmy Dorsey, clarinetist Benny Goodman, multi-instrumentalist Andy Sannella, percussion virtuoso George Hamilton Green and violinist and vocalist Scrappy Lambert, etc). As for Smith Ballew, he was an excellent singer who worked with the most diverse jazz and dance bands (Ben Pollack, the Dorsey Brothers...); when the Depression struck very harshly, he could no longer perform as a member of other bands, and founded several bands under his own name, before returning to the Dorsey Orchestra and a little later joning the Glenn Miller Orchestra. This excellent side (featuring the only recording of this song) was made in 1929. Vocal by Irving Kaufman.

Irving put on a decent Irish brogue for this one. Very nice.
