Happy Days Are Here Again

Music by Milton Ager, Lyrics by Jack Yellen

"Happy Days Are Here Again" is a song copyrighted in 1929 by Milton Ager (music) and Jack Yellen (lyrics) and published by EMI Robbins Catalog, Inc./Advanced Music Corp. The song was recorded by Leo Reisman and His Orchestra, with Lou Levin, vocal (November 1929), and was featured in the 1930 film Chasing Rainbows. The song concluded the picture, in what film historian Edwin Bradley described as a "pull-out-all-the-stops Technicolor finale, against a Great War Armistice show-within-a-show backdrop" Today, the song is usually remembered as the campaign song for Franklin Delano Roosevelt's successful 1932 presidential campaign. According to Time magazine, it gained prominence after a spontaneous decision by Roosevelt's advisers to play it at the 1932 Democratic National Convention, and went on to become the Democratic Party's "unofficial theme song for years to come". The song is also associated with the Repeal of Prohibition, which occurred shortly after Roosevelt's election where there were signs saying "Happy days are beer again" and so on

Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo Bills : 00  2 CDs

Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo Bills

The Bills bubbled to the top of the public consciousness during their star turn in the "Music Man," as the members of the River City School Board who sing "Lida Rose" (a moment in barbershop history that would introduce many of us novices to the style). In fact, though, they continued to live long and prosper way beyond that. As Columbia recording artists, they produced many albums (some with accompaniment), the highlights of which are compiled on these two CD's produced by Brian Beck. Digitally re-mastered to bring the quality to modern standards (though several tracks from their very earliest recording efforts couldn't be repaired 100%, but heck, it's part of the charm), the Bills' sound is startlingly robust for a group that won 50 years ago! Significant credit for this must be given to the arrangements of Walter Latzko, who began an eight-album association with the quartet in 1951; his impact on barbershop singing in general can hardly be overstated. The Bills brought those arrangements to life, embodying yearning and romance ("I'd Love To Live In Loveland," "Your Eyes Have Told Me So," "If You Were The Only Girl"), as well as broad tomfoolery and brisk cheer, during romps such as "Toot Toot Tootsie," "Dardanella" and "With Plenty Of Money And You." The longevity of their success may also be due in part to the smooth musicality of their approach and the warmth of their tone; though not breaking any sound barriers technically by today's standards, they don't need to. Released as part of the AIC Masterworks series to coincide with the 50th Annual Society Convention in Kansas City, this CD set is a great value.

Songlist: Hard Hearted Hannah, Birth Of The Blues, Alexander's Ragtime Band, Dardanella, Toot Toot Tootsie, My Honey's Lovin' Arms, Your Eyes Have Told Me So, If You Were The Only Girl, Rose of The Rio Grande, My Baby Just Cares For Me, A Cup of Coffee, A Sandwhich and You, I'd Love to Live in Loveland, Emaline, The Girl That I Marry, If I Could Be With You, With Plenty of Money and You, Goofus, They Didn't Believe Me, As Time Goes By, Walkin' With My Honey, Fit As A Fiddle , Bye Bye Blackbird, Why Do I Love You, Happy Days Are Here Again, Shut The Door, I'm A Ding Dong Daddy From Dumas, Sam, You Made The Pants Too Long, Josephine, Please Don't Lean On The Bell, I Love A Piano, The Preacher and The Bear, and more

Comedian Harmonists : Comedian Harmonists : 00  1 CD : 1445

Comedian Harmonists : Comedian Harmonists

If you have ever been attracted to the instrumental vocalizations of anyone, The Kings Singers, The Swingle Singers, The Mills Brothers, or the Real Group to name a few, they are treading in the footsteps of the Comedian Harmonists who starred in twelve films and sold millions of records before they were suppressed by Hitler and banned from performing. Founded in 1927, they peaked in 1930-1932 before their three Jewish members became the focus of Nazi hatred. Delightful, joyous interpretations of classical and popular standards of the day are the fare of the quintet. A light piano accompaniment is provided by the sixth member who was also the arranger. This recording contains nearly 70 minutes of music from old 78 rpm records. Fabulous!!

Songlist: Daisy (You're Driving Me Crazy), The Last Roundup, Happy Days Are Here Again, Creole Love Call, Veroninka, The Spring Is Here, Night and Day, My Little Green Cactus, Tea For Two, Can You Whistle, Johanna?, Where Is My Baby?, Beautiful Lisa, In A Shady Grove, The Village, Somewhere In The World

Barbra Streisand : One Voice : Solo : DVD : 603497044528 : RHI970445DVD

Barbra Streisand : One Voice

Originally broadcast as an exclusive special on HBO, Barbra Streisand launched her September 6, 1986 concert One Voice, in part, as a protest against Reagan-era nuclear arms proliferation in the late Cold War; the event marked the diva's first official live performance since 1972. Streisand and co. staged the endeavor in the artist's own backyard, beneath an open sky, with tickets originally going for $5,000.00 per and such celebrities as Chevy Chase in attendance, but the concert can now be enjoyed again and again by audiences everywhere in this first-time home video issue. The gig features a once-in-a-lifetime lineup of guest performers in addition to Streisand, including a routine by shtickmeister Robin Williams and musical support from giants Barry Gibb, Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Richard Marx. The video serves as a companion piece to Streisand's April 1987 album of the same live performance. Tracks include: "Somewhere," "Evergreen (Love theme from Star is Born)" "Something's Coming," "People," "Send in the Clowns," "Over the Rainbow," "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" (from Yentl), "The Way We Were," "It's a New World," "Happy Days Are Here Again," "America the Beautiful," and two duets with Gibb, "Guilty" and the showstopper "What Kind of Fool," both culled from the 1980 StreisandGibb album, Guilty.

Songlist: Barbra's Invitation, Somewhere, Evergreen, Something's Coming, People, Send In The Clowns, Over the Rainbow, Guilt (With Barry Gibb), What Kind of Fool (With Barry Gibb), Papa, Can You Hear Me?, The Way We Were , It's a New World, Happy Days Are Here Again, America, The Beautiful
