Bing Crosby was the first to record BLACK MOONLIGHT but not first to perform it as it was a score written for a 1933 film 'Too Much Harmony' (sung by Kitty Kelly and dubbed by Barbara Van Brunt). My introduction to the song was by Ernestine Anderson, recorded in 1960. Before that there were a few others; Perry Como, Mel Torme and Anita Oday. I am thrilled to be bring this out into the light in 2017! I've got a dvd now of the film and will share bits and pieces of it later.
