In 1927 Bessie Smith, accompanied on piano by James P. Johnson, made a
wonderful recording of this tune. I would be grateful for the answers to two
questions :

1. On which label was the recording released, and
2. Who composed the tune?

"When I get home I'm gonna change my lock and key, believe me" - you tell
'em, Bessie!
