N°1 US. Introduced one year earlier by vaudeville couple Nora Bayes & Jack Norworth in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1908 (see footnote). They cut it for Victor in 1910 but that version was never released. With Albert Von Tilzer, Jack cowrote Take Me Out To The Ball Game, his wife Nora popularized it in her act. In her revue, young George Gershwin made his first appearance as a pianist. In 1917 her version of George M. Cohen's Over There became the biggest war hit.

Shine On Harvest Moon was also the first hit coming out of the Ziegfeld Follies (since 1907). Until then a Broadway revue combined sentiment, extravaganza and burlesque. Florence Ziegfeld Jr. and his Follies added girls to it, not just a few but lines and lines of beauties.
