This was one Harry Reser's countless pseudonyms. During the 20's and 30's, Harry Reser not only played in a number of bands, but also led his own bands using an amazing number of pseudonyms. His bands recorded an incredible number of tunes in a variety of styles, but the pop tunes and novelty songs appealed to a wider audience, and are also among his best recordings. Harry Reser often arranged many of the songs that the bands recorded. Like in this video, many of the better songs feature vocals by Tom Stacks, who was also the drummer on many of these sessions. His voice has been described as having "a built-in grin". Another highlight of these recordings are Reser's banjo solos which show amazing clarity and technique, with a little jazz influence tossed in. The band most associated with Harry Reser was the The Clicquot Club Eskimos. This group was heard weekly on NBC radio network from 1925 to 1935 and brought Reser a degree of fame. This great record was made in 1926.
