This record was produced in New York City on July 15th 1925 featuring Ed Kirkeby director, Frank Cush and Roy Johnston trumpets, Tommy Dorsey trombone, Bobby Davis and Fred Cusick clarinet & alto sax, Irving Brodsky piano, Tommy Fellini banjo, Adrian Rollini bass sax, and Stan King drums.

The "Golden Gate Orchestra" was a pseudonym commonly used by the "California Ramblers."

*"Manhattan" was composed by Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers.

The song was featured in the 1925 Broadway musical "The Garrick Gaieties".

It was the first in a series of three "Gaieties" revues with subsequent productions appearing in 1926 and 1930.

The original production opened at Broadway's Garrick Theater on May 17th 1925 as a limited two-performance benefit for the Theatre Guild. The show was so well recived that it was re-opened on June 8th 1925 for a run which lasted until November 28th, for a total of two hundred-eleven performances.
