Comments
It is not entirely clear that the original performance of this work was in "Blackbirds of 1928". It had been scheduled to be in an earlier musical revue, "Harry Delmar's Revels" in 1927. Harry Delmar hated the song, and it was cut from "Revels"; however, it may have been cut only after the opening night of the revue. The sources disagree on this. We believe it is more likely that the song was cut before the opening of "Harry Delmar's Revels". If, as is reported, Delmar hated the song, it seems unlikely that he would have allowed it to be used and then cut it after a single performance.
