It seems like only yesterday, we became friends...

Now I am yours, "Body and Soul."


Love always, Annette, "That's All!"

Annette Hanshaw - Body and Soul (1930)



Annette Hanshaw (Oct.18,1901 - March 13,1985) was one of the first great
female jazz singers. In the late 1920s she ranked alongside Ethel
Waters, Bessie Smith and the Boswell Sisters. Her singing style was
relaxed and suited the new jazz-influenced pop music of the late 1920s.
Although she had a low opinion of her own singing, she continues to have
fans because of how she combined the voice of an ingenue with the
spirit of a flapper.

Hanshaw made her one and only appearance on film in the 1933 Paramount
short Captain Henry's Radio Show, "a picturization" of the popular
Thursday evening radio program Maxwell House Show Boat, in which she
starred from 1932 to 1934.

Hanshaw was known as "The Personality Girl," and her trademark was
saying "That's all" in a childish voice at the end of many of her

Having grown tired of show business, in the late 1930s Hanshaw retired
and settled into married life with her husband, Pathé Records executive
Herman "Wally" Rose. Later in life, in a would-be comeback, she recorded
two demo records, but they were never released.

Between September 1926 and February 1934, she recorded prolifically.
From 1926-1928 she recorded for Pathe (her sides were released on both
the Pathe and Perfect labels). Starting in June 1928, she recorded for
Columbia; most of these were issued on their dime store labels Harmony,
Diva, Clarion and Velvet Tone. A handful were also released on their
regular price Columbia and OKeh. Although most were released under her
own name, she was renamed Gay Ellis (for sentimental numbers) and Dot
Dare or Patsy Young (for her Helen Kane impersonations).

Starting in August 1932, she began recording for the ARC with her
recordings issued on their Melotone, Perfect, Conqueror, Oriole and
Romeo. Her final session, February 3, 1934 was placed on ARC's Vocalion

I feel so welcome when I read your comments!

In 1926 Annette Hanshaw had an audition for Pathe records in which
she created two recordings - a pair of 3 song medleys using popular
tunes from 1925 and 1926. She was soon a record star and this first test
recording fell into obscurity. Here is a chance to once again listen to
these recordings - to hear her just before she emerged onto the public

Yes, my dearest friend.

The song is ended.

We have had fun, haven't we?


Love always, Annette, "That's All!"

"The Song is Ended (but the Melody Lingers On)" is a popular song
composed by Irving Berlin, with lyrics written by Beda Loehner in 1927.
The song's famous lyric is referenced in Ira Gershwin's verse to "They
Can't Take That Away from Me", in the line the song is ended, but as the
songwriter wrote, the melody lingers on.

was recorded January 30, 1930 in New York City. Composers were Billy Rose and Henry Tobias.

Annette Hanshaw~Cooking Breakfast for the One I Love~1930~




The coffee is steaming
Oh boy what I'm dreaming
While I'm cooking breakfast
For the one I love
My baby likes bacon
And that's what I'm making
While I'm cooking breakfast
For the one I love
Our life has been so nice and charming
Right from the start
When I won his tummy, I won his heart
My baby is happy, no wonder I'm happy
While I'm cooking breakfast for the one I love

Morning, I'll be getting up
Morning, I'll be setting up
A tiny table for two
Breakfast, I'll be making his breakfast
He'll be taking his shave and his shower
My happy hour

The coffee is steaming
Oh boy what I'm dreaming
While I'm cooking breakfast
For the one I love
My baby likes bacon
And that's what I'm making
While I'm cooking breakfast
For the one I love
Our life has been so nice and charming
Right from the start
When I won his tummy, I won his heart
My baby is happy, no wonder I'm happy
While I'm cooking breakfast for the one I love

I'm baking a biscuit
He's willing to risk it
While I'm cooking breakfast for the one I love
You're wiping the dishes (what if he breaks a few the dishes)
While I'm cooking breakfast for the one I love
I serve a plate of steaming oatmeal
Taste it but schucks
Who the heck wants oatmeal
Sprinkled with "Lux"?
You can tell that he's grateful
He eats a big plateful
And faints right after breakfast
For the one that he loves! "That's All!"

I'll be there for you, when you need me!

Take my hand, and we will make everything work out...

Do you see the tulips?

I do!


Love always, Annette, "That's All!"

the 1929 musical talkie "Gold Diggers of Broadway," held the #1 position
