Ohhhhhhyeahhh...I forgot he did it, too.  Didn't he do a version of  (and I'm gonna slaughter the spelling...so, it's phonetic...) By Mir Bis Du Schayn??   Undecided  You know what I mean, right?  I know the Andrews Sisters did it, but I don't know who played it when they sang it...And...JUMP JIVE AND WAIL!!  (Brian Setzer's version is great, too!) 

...That whole Swing thing hit BIG when I worked at Harmony House the second time...(oddly enough, N&D was released in 95, IIRC--before the wave hit...)I started back there in 98; and I remember all our high school kids went to the same school (sometimes awesome, sometimes quite hellish!) were all takin' swing lessons, and they'd come in afterward and show us what they learned...We played that stuff a LOT!!  There were some really good bands at that point--Brian Setzer's Big Band, The Fabulous Swing Kings, Blue Plate Special (who played our CHRISTMAS PARTY; from Chicago, I think!) Cherry Poppin' Daddies...I can't remember any more. 

Yeah, that's what my Mom has; a Victrola...It was GRANNY'S. Cry
