Here’s a extra little gem I found by accident. In looking for a vocal version of Body and Soul, and finding Annette Hanshaw’s version, I also found this gem by Annette Hanshaw: Wasting My Love On You (1930). What a surprise!
The tune was written music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Edgar Leslie. This recording was released on several of Columbia’s budget labels. All we know about the musicians: the instrumental backup was a five piece band under the direction of Ben Selvin. Too bad that no other credits are available, there was some nice trumpet work. But those were tough times and we’re lucky to have the records.
I Love it! What a great song and the perfect singer to sing it. And as the lady used to say at the end of her records, “That’s all.”
