Fats Waller — Sweet Thing

Thanks to cdbpdx for the You Tube

Sweet Thing was recorded by Fats and Rhythm November 29, 1935. with five other songs. The musicians included Herman Autrey, trumpet; Gene Sedric, reeds; James Smith , guitar; Charles Turner, bass; Yank Porter, drums; and Fats on piano and vocal. The song was composed by Young, Baer, and Albert. I hear lots of surface noise on this and other You Tubes of the original 78’s of this song. That means the original owners of the records got plenty of enjoyment from these records. This recording date featured Fats in a mellow mood.
