watching just to see the elegant 1921 Victor Talking Machine in action.

I had the song on my mind because I finally got around to seeing the Amelia Earhart movie and loved the Ethel Waters performance of that song (anachronistic, as was pointed out here, because she did it in 1934 and the scene was in 1928).

One youtube commentator points out that this is not the 1934 version but must be post-1937.

is amazing.

If I ever get around to learning that song, I'll have to work off this version. When she jumps up into the higher register toward the end, it just gives you the shivers.
