What has to be your favourite song from 1927 ?

Mine would certainly have to be this little number.


Roger Wolfe Kahn & His Orchestra

Certainly a great song, but I thought this was "Following You Around"?

It is, but I couldn't find the lyrics to it, so I just made the words up as I went along.

Once more, with lyrics.....

Anywhere I may find you
I don't care where, look behind you,
I'll be right there, following you around.

Rain or shine, you can't shake me
'Cause I don't mind where you take me
I'll spend my time following you around.

Oh honey, you know, hiding from me does no good.
Wherever you go I'll be in the neighborhood.

If you run, I run faster,
I'm gonna stick, like a plaster
I get a kick, following you around.


This guy clearly is an obsessive stalker!

Thanks for sharing this file! I'd never heard this version before.

You can here a beautiful rendition by Bob Haring at:

Following You Around is a great song! Thanks for the two posts by Roger Wolfe Kahn and Ben Bernie. Assume dates for both are 1927. Anything more specific? Do you know the male duo on the Bernie record? Any other versions of this song out there? It is indeed the ultimate stalker song. Very funny! Thanks again Gart

You want more specific? You got it! The Ben Bernie record was recorded March 14, 1927 in New York. The label just says "with vocal duet" but according to Brian Rust it's Scrappy Lambert and Billy Hillpot. It was also issued as Vocalion 15542. The reverse side features "I'm In Love Again". I won the record in Nauck's Vintage Record Auction #38 (november 2005), it was lot nr. 6569, and I paid $ 7.70 for it. It was graded (conservatively as V++). wink.gif

heer bommel

thanks!! that was fast and complete! Thanks so much. What kind of 'handle' is heer bommel. i want to call you beau brummel or herr bommel. thanks also for the other information. I'm not a collector so I don't totally understand all the stuff, except for the record label. Many of you guys (bless you!) list many acrane facts (I'm thinking of our genial host, Dismuke on his Hit of the Week) but don't provide plain vanilla info like dates (if available) and singers. So thanks for the relevant facts! best, gart in wet and cold (40 degrees) Oakland, CA

Graded V++, i'll bet it looks like E+.......thats one thing ( among many) that sets Nauck apart from the crowd, one can even get a V+ and it's just great. You got a bargain on that Ben Bernie.

There are so many from 1927!!!

- but one I've always loved from my very earliest days of collecting is Frank Black's version of Baby Your Mother (Like She Babied You). I don't have a sound file of it to upload, but Aaron I sent you a CD last year that included that song--could you post it for me please?

Another favorite of more recent years I found on the Red Hot Jazz Archive. It is Lazy Mama by Clarence Williams Orchestra on Okeh from June, 1927. About six months after discovering this song, I was fortunate in obtaining a nice copy of it from the late Mike Stewart's Green River Records auction.

I was not familiar with that particular Ben Bernie recording. VERY nice. Thanks for presenting it - I will have to keep my eye out for a copy. Bernie had a really nice band during the 1920s and into the early '30s - one of my favorites.

Actually, I like your lyrics better than the original. Perhaps you could become a modern day "jazz age" lyricist!

Heer Bommel, or, more complete, Olivier B. Bommel is a cartoon character by the late Dutch cartoonist Marten Toonder.
The reason I guess some collectors post info like matrix and catalogue numbers and not always info like vocalists could be that these data are easily available, because itīs printed on the label. Singers arenīt always credited, the label often just says "with vocal refain" And many bands recorded under pseudonyms, which makes it even harder to find info on recording dates. I have a record in my collection with both sides credited to the Denza Dance Band. But itīs clearly 2 different orchestra's! According to Brian Rust (who isn't always correct, either) one side is the Ipana Troubadours, the other is the California Ramblers.
