Written in 1933 for the Cotton Club Parade as That's What I Like About The South (The Groove Song), introduced there by Cab Calloway but shelved. Recorded in Los Angeles. Andy Razaf also wrote Ain't Misbehavin', Honeysuckle Rose, In The Mood and Stompin' At The Savoy.
Cliff Bruner [vocal: Moon Mullican]
Phil Harris [on RCA]
Tex Williams [as That's What I Like About The West; top 5 C&W]
Johnny Bond [see note under Hot Rod Lincoln]
One way or another Phil Harris' original sounds much more northern, too northern for a title like this.
