Bing Crosby had been with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra as a vocalist for a little over a year when this was recorded and he was often part of a vocal ensemble or the Rhythm Boys. This time he is given a chance to sing solo. His backup is not the Rhythm Boys, but a quartet consisting of Al Rinker, Jack Fulton, Charles Gaylord and Austin Young. Bing was new and didn't get much recognition, in fact his name doesn't even appear on the record label.
