Crown is somewhat reviled as the king of the discount labels – records were issued without even paper inner sleeves, and issues records between 1953 and 1972. Records issue by Crown often have really noisy recordings or sound warn, but this one actually holds up pretty well.

Their biggest single, the title track here, came out in 1939 and most of their best records were issued in the 40s and 50s before they formally disbanded in the mid-fifties.

Maybe that makes me more forgiving of the sound here – older recording technology and all.
