Fats Waller, A Soundie of Honeysuckle Rose

 

thanks to therealgaryhill for the You Tube

Honeysuckle Rose was one of Fat’s most popular composition. This video was what was known as a Soundie. Soundies were early forerunners of the Music Video except that they were filmed. They were played in movie theaters as an extra feature. Fats Waller was perfect for soundies as he knew how to put on a show. The band members of his regular group Rhythm were featured here. }
