With Carson Robison on guitar. Drinking song with bawdy lyrics, slightly based upon the character of 19th century San Francisco sailor and gold rush miner (49er) William Bernard, who also modeled for Bluto, Popeye's opponent in the Fleischer cartoons.
Hoagy Carmichael [with Carson Robison (vocal) and Bix Beiderbecke (cornet solo); Bix couldn't believe this bawdy recording got released (on Victor); that was while Carmichael worked as a song plugger for Ralph Peer, operating from the Brill Building on Broadway]
Max Fleischer Studio [introducing Barnacle Bill in the very first Popeye cartoon (Popeye Beware Of Barnacle Bill); role model for Bluto; even Popeye's tune echoes this intro]
John Valby [alias Dr. Dirty; blaring out the original lyrics]
