Basin Street Revue
Directed by - Joseph Kohn

(1956) - B&W - 40 min

Willie Bryant - The Clown Prince of Mirth is you host from the Apollo! Opening number features Lionel Hampton and his Orchestra performing "She's My Ding Dong Baby"!

Sarah Vaughan sings a few!

Martha Davis plays a wicked piano!

Sarah Vaughan has the opening number followed by Paul Williams and The Hucklebuck Boys, with Jimmy Brown doing a solo. Martha Davis dazzles you with talent. Then Nipsey Russell and Mantan Moreland do a hilarious comedy routine.

Amos Milburn sings Bewildered followed by Fay Adams performing "Somebody, Somewhere". The Clovers close out part 3 with "Lovey, Dovey" - note the line "I really love your peaches, want to shake your tree". And you thought this line is credited to Steve Miller - who was just a baby at the time.
