The Dinah Shore cover and the original have now been added. Although we still must confirm and provide proof internally of all the data, many thanks for your excellent and helpful research.

The Guy Lombardo cover will be added shortly; I am sure there are more covers out there as well.

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

for Columbia.

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.

Please don't leech onto other posts. If it doesn't have anything to do with the submission in question, it doesn't belong and it is just plain rude. This is not a general discussion of the song. You also in a sense violate the one cover per post rule. This should have been a separate post. That's easily done, no?

Leeching is not going to get your submissions put in the database any faster. It is more likely that you prevent the original poster from getting his/her submission processed.

Adding posts also prevents marking threads as completed. Realize also that if I don't return to a thread, it is very likely no other editor would ever see it to enter your submission. Unless you bookmark it, you probably wouldn't remember to find this post to see if was completed.

I apologize for incorrectly treating the exchange concerning this song as a discussion. It was not my intention to be rude.
