Notes: Jimmy Wakely was an American C & W singer and actor. He was first discovered by one of the Radio/TV/Movie singing cowboys, Gene Autry. He acted in a number of B Westerns during the 1940s. He had a successful recording career but became more prominent after he joined forces with Margaret Whiting. He eventually had his own TV radio show and continued acting and singing until the 1970s. He is most well known for the titles SLIPPIN' AROUND ONE HAS MY NAME (THE OTHER HAS MY HEART) Margaret Whiting, daughter of songwriter Richard Whiting, was a 1940s/50s/60s pop, jazz, C & W singer and TV personality. She was born in Detroit USA. Her voice was wonderfully mellow, particularly in the lower registers, and an attraction for many. She had a number of hit recordings and continued to entertain until the 1990s. She was known by her adoring fans as the voice of MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT the work of Blackburn/Suessdorf which her mentor, Johnny Mercer first suggested she record. She first sang for Mercer when she was seven years old and he eventually signed her as one of his first recording artists in the early 1940s. This song ultimately became a huge hit and over the years, a picturesque all time standard. (Transcribed by David Story May 2014)
