Red Hair and Freckles

I get lost surfing Youtube and its treasure trove of vaudeville sketches and players. It’s a treat to see these stage acts like this one recorded, even though it’s clear the experience doesn’t completely translate to film. Of course, I have to cop to a bias with these guys. Their first number is a charmer called “Red Hair and Freckles”. What a brilliantly inspired song! Naturally, I had to hunt down a copy of the sheet music for this. You bet I did not rest until I found it – and the original 1929 version arranged for ukulele!
