I've loved this song or as long as I can remember. That whole lyrical and musical style from the 20s, 30s etc has always captured my ear.
This is another song that we cut with the Hot Club of Hulaville, on that magical night at Pierre Grills studio in Hawaii. We did this one last, after Lonely At The Top and I Wanna Be Seduced.
We were in pretty high gear and my voice was feeling great. I couldn't believe that these guys were helping so much and making me sound so good. It was a high that I wish I could give away.
Sonny and I worked out the key and the vocal style until it felt right. We then cut the track in a few takes and it was magic again. Wow! Quit while you are ahead.
Mike Couchois then did his special drum magic and Harry Donahue played the beautiful piano to give it the real tuxedo feel.
Am I channeling Bing, Frank, Tom Waits? What the hell, I'm having fun.
