Album: Golden Greats (1933)
  • songfacts ®
  • In a short review on page 106 of the August 1933 issue of The GRAMOPHONE, Formby is said to be "mildly amusing" with this song which has a "stupendous" title; the latter is self-evident, and it is indeed mildly amusing, but slightly more attention was paid to its "naughty" A Side, "With My Little Ukulele In My Hand".
    According to the George Formby Society's on-line discography, he recorded it July 1, 1933 on the Decca label, and unlike the A Side it did not have to be reissued! >>
