Description

Ann sings a medley of two songs written for Polish singer Lyda Roberti in the 1930s, with accompaniment from the incomparable Frederick Hodges. The first tune is "Sweet and Hot" from the 1931 Broadway show "You Said It", by Harold Arlen. The next is "It's Terrific (When I Get Hot)" from the 1932 movie "Million Dollar Legs" starring W.C. Fields. That song has music by Ralph Rainger and words by Larry Hart. You can see the original performance by Lyda herself singing that second song in Million Dollar Legs here: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7325370391063804524 (song starts at 2:15 into the clip) From the 2011 West Coast Ragtime Festival in Sacramento, California. http://www.westcoastragtime.com http://www.frederickhodges.com
