Cliff Edwards was an original. Between 1925 and 1930 he sold over 75,000,000 records (all 78's). His falsetto singing and ukulele were one of the inspirations for "Tiny Tim", but Cliff--the original--was MUCH better and more listenable. He is best known as the voice of Jiminy Cricket in Walt Disney's "Pinocchio", and he sang the song "When I see an Elephant Fly" in Dumbo.

He also (featured on this disc) was the first artist to record "Singin' in the Rain", in 1929. Catch this number, and several others on You Tube, in excerpts from the "Hollywood Revue of 1929".

If you like "retro", buy this disc.
