FTM 60817:

Fats Waller & his Rhythm
Songs of Love and Attraction

You're Not the Only Oyster in the Stew

You're My Dish

Until the Real Thing Comes Along

Squeeze Me

Sweet and Slow

I'm Growing Fonder of You

You've Got Me Under Your Thumb

You Fit Into the Picture

You Went to My Head

I Can't Give You Anything But Love

Sweet Heartache

There's Honey on the Moon Tonight

I'd Rather Call You Baby

Sweetie Pie

There Goes My Attraction

Ooh! Looka There, Ain't She Pretty?

Please Keep Me In Your Dreams

You Meet the Nicest People in Your Dreams


  1. Hi arwulf - I'm afraid this isn't very apropos, but I looked for a while for an email address with no success, so I thought I'd try this instead. I've been greatly enjoying your jazz reviews on the Allmusic guide - I've been trying to make my way through the Chronological Classics series. I am listening to the Kansas City 5,6 and 7 disc, and find myself puzzled by 'Way Down Yonder In New Orleans - I'm pretty confident that there are three wind instruments harmonising at the beginning of the track, but only two are credited in the liner notes. Paying attention to each of them individually, I'm pretty sure that none of them could be the electric guitar - just wondering whether you agree with me, really!

  2. Dear Nicholas,
    The answer to this riddle is simply that Eddie Durham played both electrically amplified guitar and trombone on this date. Voila! Must say it was a pleasant surprise receiving your message, and I want to invite you to stay in touch so that we may discuss music whenever you wish. My email address is - thanks very much!
