On page 22 of the February 2, 1946 issue of Billboard there is an article that states
Capitol Songs has four disks lined
up for its "Shoo-Fly Pie and Apple
Pan Dowdy." Stan Kenton and Peggy
Lee are doing versions of it for
Capitol Records, Guy Lombardo will
cut it for Decca and Dinah Shore
It appears that the Peggy Lee recording was not made.
The Dinah Shore and Stan Kenton recording were both reviewed in the February 16, 1946 issue.
By April the Kenton, Shore and Lombardo versions made the Billboard charts.
Connie Haines's version was reviewed in March.
