Daddy Won't You Please Come Home - Annette Hanshaw with the New Englanders

Here's my current favourite Annette Hanshaw recording. It's been neglected on my computer for a long time, skipped over because I thought it was an Annettified version of 'Baby Won't You Please Come Home', a song I can live without hearing again. Silly me!

Hanshaw sings here with a breezy innocence and straightforward approach that is at least as hard to achieve as the complex vocal gymnastics of more modern singers. It also features a sweet melody and poised clarinet from Jimmy Dorsey.
