    Hi all

    I have a (poor quality) version of Honeysuckle Rose (originally by Fats Waller) and I am trying to find out who did this version, so that I can get it on CD. (Note that it's not a live version - the recording was originally a video of a performance, hence the crowd noise)

    I have the first 1m15 odd as an MP3 at http://www.bens-house.org.uk/hsr_sample.mp3 - if you know who did this version, please can you let me know? It's really really nice to swing to (great breaks) :)

    No luck yet, benh? Bummer. Maybe someone can log in and identify the artist for you. :?

    Hi Meepee

    Thanks for the resource - there is a similar one at http://www.allmusic.com that I checked out about 100 different versions on with no luck :)

    I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that someone recognises it though ...

    Wahey! Found out the answer - it was done by Maxine Sullivan on the album "A Tribute to Andy Razaf"

    Just thought I'd share it with you all :)

    How did you find it? I listened to a zillion samples on iTunes w/no success. Way to go.

    So now I feel bad since I recognized the voice as Maxine Sullivan's :( but wasn't sure of the CD. Oh well.

    I found it by luck - I had sent a message to the person who I got the video from and they new the answer :)

    It's a really nice version - I have ordered the CD now that I know which one it is ;)
