If I Were You was composed by Bernier and Emmerich. Fats Waller’s version was recorded 7-1-1938. Personnel on that date included Herman Autrey, trumpet; Gene Cedric, reeds; Al Casey, guitar; Cedric Wallace, bass; Slick Jones, drums; and Fats on piano and vocal. This track is off of the same African Ripples reissue LP I played last week. It was produced by Mike Lipskin in 1969. That LP was my introduction to Fats Waller. It still sounds great to me.
