John, I read somewhere that Berln never learned to read music and could play 
(not too well) in only one key...F#. He then employed others to write the 
actual scores. So if you want to play it just as Berlin did, play it in F#. Yours 
may be the only version in that haunting key!!

Does anyone know the correct key for Irving Berlin's "I'm Putting All My
Eggs In One Basket"? I have a very rough tape of Don Lambert playing it
which I would like to transcribe, his performance seems to oscillate
somewhere around Eb and F. Dave Littlefield has a fake book with the tune in
C (thanks Sheik).

Help !
