Perhaps someone here can help me. I purchased the Roaring 20"s album (Crown) of Billy Randolph and the High Hatters.

Who is the enchanting female vocalist singing the numbers "Goody Goody," "Mas, He's Making Eyes at Me," and B
"Rings on Her Fingers?"

Her voice is haunting me and I cannot find out her identity. (Could it have been Belle Mann?)

Thanks for any assistance.

Sounds like one of the Lawrence Welk gals... It's Peggy Lennon! I'm pretty sure... compare this video:

The original album is: CLP-5070/CST-105 - Roaring 20's - Billy Randolph & His High Hatters [1958], which is right in the same time period as Peggy Lennon and her Lawrence Welk fame.

I am afraid that she is too young. I am told that Crown reissued the music from a Victor pressing circa 1929. Peggy wasn't born until much later. She sure sounds similar though!

I listened to track samples and those recordings don't sound "'20ish" They sound "50s"...

Hmm...

Although the other two existed before 1929, I thought that Goody Goody wasn't written until 1936. If so that would mean that these couldn't have all been recorded in 1929.

Update:
OK, I checked at the Johnny Mercer Educational Archives and it confirms that Goody Goody was written in 1936.

This page says its from this LP from the 50s... I'm sure it's Ms Lennon.

Very convincing arguments. Perhaps I just want to believe something different. Or I was misinformed. Or I made a poor choice trusting a source.

One fellow I met who is in his mid80's said that while he was just a boy, he was positive it was Helen Kane.

By the 50's did no one keep track of the talent that performed?

I really appreciate the assistance, I have been trying to find a concrete answer for about six weeks.

He's mistaken, because it's definitely not Helen Kane! I'm sure your friend is just associating the style of the music and some of the titles with the era and his fond memories.

To listen to these tracks, just the physical characteristics alone have the style of recording that is common to the '50s. The made quite a few of these nostalgic records during the 50s, in fact it was a fad of the time. It's a great record, though! It's just "too perfect" sounding to be from the '20s!

Here's Helen Kane to compare!

"I Wanna Be Loved By You"

"Don't Be Like That"
