*According to information on www.allmusic.com, it was the 1950 recording of this song that launched Fisher's recording career with RCA Victor. Fisher recorded a number of singles for them, but it was not until four of them had reached the top ten in popularity that the label decided to release an album of his work in 1952. It's enough to make one wonder how many of today's "recording artists" would have careers at all if they were held to the same criteria before they could record an album. And cynic that I am, I can't help but wonder if we wouldn't be better off if the were...and if some of them might not be, as well.
