Cover added. Thanks for the submission.
Artist, release and cover added. Thanks for the submission.
The original of "Here's to the Losers" is not in the database. I'm not familiar with the work and did not try to find the original.
Yes. Thanks for catching it. I've fixed it.
Label and year of release modified based on your source.
Updated. Thanks for the new information.
I have now added the missing Rudy Vallee cover: Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?.
Adjusted. Thanks for pointing this out.
I have either moved my entries (where I could confirm through listening) or simply deleted them. This leaves the Ted Lewis entry as the only version of the Lane-Washington song as it now has no covers.
Feel free to change either of these entries based on your knowledge. If they have different lyrics than the original, they would be adaptations so you would need to find out who wrote the new lyrics.
I don't know what may have been discussed about voice used as instrument before my time, but based upon the response to my objection to characterizing wordless vocalizations as in an "undetermined" language, if this was ever the SHS policy, I don't think it is now. I'm continuing to eliminate performances shown with "undetermined" language - and reorienting them with a comment - to the extent that the performance is obviously not in any language used by humans. If, indeed, I receive confirmation from Bastien/Denis that editors are supposed to pretend all human vocalizations not in an actual language constitute "adaptations" in "undetermined" language, I will simply stop entering any performances where sounds not in a language appear on the recording. I don't see that as good for the database, but the alternative of pretending such sounds are in some language that has simply been "undetermined" is so ridiculous that I refuse to perpetuate this approach - even if it is what somebody says we are supposed to be doing.
One less missing original as I've added "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling".
I've added the recording date. Thanks for the additional information. I'm also pleased that you have gotten some use out of the database. I'm putting in a lot of time working on the database because I want this information to be available to anyone interested in it. I'll be looking for future submissions from you. Best.
