First, "With a Song in My Heart," the Rodgers & Hart standard introduced in "Spring is Here," won't be heard on this week's "Big Broadcast." Had I thought of it, I could have played it last Sunday as a "Valentine's Day" selection. But I didn't. No exuse. Still, it's nice to hear a contemporary recording of the song complete with the verse. It's performed by the Biltmore Trio, who were featured with Earl Burtnett's band in Los Angeles. Formal cast recordings didn't exist at this time, though you may find the odd number from a show by a cast member, like Helen Morgan's "Bill" from "Show Boat." One of the biggest songs of 1933, "Stormy Weather," was introduced in the "Cotton Club Parade" by Ethel Waters accompanied by Duke Ellington. Waters and Ellington were signed to different labels, so Waters made her "Stormy Weather" (minus Duke) for Columbia, and Ellington made his as an instrumental on Brunswick. We'll hear Duke's tonight. "Stormy Weather" was written by Ted Koehler and Harold Arlen, and Arlen made his own "Stormy Weather" (he was a fine singer) on Victor. Beyond that, there were easily a dozen more versions all made within a few months of mid 1933.
