(July 23, 2016): Leo Reisman and his Orchestra – Happy Days Are Here Again

From the 1929 single, Lucky Me – Loveable You / Happy Days Are Here Again.  This was the first recording of this Eger and Yellen tune that has been covered countless times.  It was used as the finale in  the 1930 film “Chasing Rainbows” and was famously used as the theme song of the 1932 Democratic Convention (without any complaint by composers or performers).  I suspect we will hear it again next week.  A bit of a turn up after all the GOP doom and gloom. Vocals by Lou Levin.
