“Alone In The Rain”
Nat Lewis’ Dance Band
1930 (Broadcast 565 B)
Nat Lewis’ Dance Band – Alone In The Rain]
In my recent posting on Harry Bidgood And His Broadcasters I mentioned that one of the pseudonyms that Bidgood sometimes recorded under for the Broadcast label was Nat Lewis’ Dance Band. Here is an example of such a recording.
“Alone In The Rain” was introduced in the 1930 Pathé film The Grand Parade which starred Helen Twelvetrees. The film is believed to be lost.
My favorite part of this record comes immediately after the vocal when the band suddenly finishes out the recording with an entirely different song from the same film, “Moanin’ For You.”
