Great 1934 tune by Harry Warren and Al Dubin.

A nice old tune with harmony that sits very comfortably on the Anglo as well.

Hi Randy - Good stuff on the English... but there's an interesting " intro/ verse " to the song as well you could add.
Have a listen to my version on Crane duet ( I sing it as well) If you Google Youtube Geoff Lakeman you'll find
about five song videos of mine.. including "I only have eyes for you"

Very nice. I like your singing.

I used an arrangement used by Art Garfunkel on his 1975 remake of the tune. It did not have the intro which you so aptly demonstrated.

My YouTube search didn't come up with that particular video in the initial list, but anyone can click here for a topic you posted somewhat over a year ago, and that link (among others) is right there.  Good stuff.
