Description

Ole Buttermilk Sky (Carmichael-Brooks) by Kay Kyser & his Orchestra, vocal by Michael Douglas and The Campus Kids (CD audio source) Many years before Michael Dowd achieved national stardom as TV host Mike Douglas, he had sung as 'Michael Douglas' with the Kay Kyser band. And this was his big number-one hit record, one of four versions of the movie song (from "Canyon Passage") to reach the Billboard singles top-10. See also the posted recordings by co-writer Hoagy Carmichael, Helen Carroll and Paul Weston (vocal by Matt Dennis). Note that an alternate Kyser version (with hand claps during the opening bars) has also been issued on CD...this post is the original hit. THE 1946 HITS ARCHIVE - here in one place, a good-quality library of best-sellers and songs that made an impact, presented in the original-release versions (no remakes, alternate takes, or "re-processed stereo") MusicProf78 on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Musicprof78/689903871053047
