Note: ~ introduced and featured by Russ Columbo in 1931, recorded for Victor.
Perry was a friend of the composer and revived the song in 1946 with a best selling record
which remained on "Your Hit Parade" for fifteen weeks, achieving gold record status.
He performed this song many times on his radio and television shows and, apart from
duplicating his recorded performance for the War Time V-Disc program, he never recorded
the song again for RCA Victor until his 1970 'live' Las Vegas performance in 1970.
