"A" side on the 78 RPM format with "Carolina Moon" on the flip side. It also appeared within a limited
Special Series of Victor 78 RPM recordings, numerically listed as 45-0000 through to 45-3999
( selling for 85 U.S. ). The song appeared within a Special Double Feature RCA 78 RPM compilation
itled "Inside USA" released circa 1948. Features songs from the hit Broadway show by Howard Dietz
and Arthur Schwartz starring Fred Astaire, Perry Como and more. Inside U.S.A. was recorded before
the show was fully cast in order to beat the 1948 ASCAP strike, which explains why non-cast members
performed some of these songs.
