Dear Craig,
³Well bugger me², as we Australians are wont to say when amazed.
I had already checked the Red Hot Jazz site and somehow missed that entry.
I¹m definitely due for putting out to pasture, or down.
I had also checked my Whiteman records and only came up with the
Lombardo-Green-Kahn version.
After listening to the link you gave and realising that it was Bing singing,
I went straight to my LP shelves and found that I have it!
Once again, thank you young fella.
Kind regards,
