This was a promotional tune, for the campaign of Harry S. Truman. Jolson's amazing voice remained true to form even at this late date, and the personality which captivated fans for decades still shows through immediately. Truly a legend...

According to the St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture , "Jolson was to jazz , blues , and ragtime what Elvis Presley was to rock 'n' roll ." Being the first popular singer to make a spectacular event out of singing a song, he became a rock star before the dawn of rock music. His specialty was performing on stage runways extending out into the audience. He would run up and down the runway, and across the stage, "teasing, cajoling, and thrilling the audience", often stopping to sing to individual members; all the while the "perspiration would be pouring from his face, and the entire audience would get caught up in the ecstasy of his performance". According to music historian Larry Stempel, "No one had heard anything quite like it before on Broadway." Author Stephen Banfield agreed, writing that Jolson's style was "arguably the single most important factor in defining the modern musical". [5]
