Huh? cat

Catchy little tune, but, as far as I can see, it was recorded in 1924. Any how, blues form or not (is it?), to paraphrase Ian Hislop, if that record's da blooz, I'm a banana geek

Blues success only served to make the gorgeous siblings, if possible, even more beautiful:



Tinseltown was entranced, and the sisters became global silver-screen superstars!



As so often happens, the girls' star faded, and they spent several decades in the doldrums. 'Never say never' was their motto and, amazingly, they resurfaced in the 1980s as the toppermost of teh poppermost in the glitzy world of D-I-S-C-O!

and a Columbia cylinder by Len Spencer (just a snippet of the song ... Crying or Very sad ) from the same period, I guess:
