"Effin" to the Moon


This record was made in New York City on October 26th 1933 featuring Cliff Edwards ukulele & vocals.

*"It's Only A Paper Moon" was composed by Harold Arlen, with lyrics by E. Y. Harburg and Billy Rose. It was published in 1933.

Cliff Edwards aka "Ukelele Ike" had an extraordinary voice and was know, aside from playing his ukulele, for a vocal technique that emulates a horn, (heard here) which he called "effin".
