Jumpin' Jiminy...Cricket! It's Ukulele Ike!

Here's a Ukulele Ike that was in the stack of brand new looking records found last week.

I had always known that Cliff Edwards was the voice of Jiminy Cricket in Pinocchio and other Disney fare but searching the net tonight, I found out that his life was anything but Disney-ish.

Also read that he may have been the first to lay down scat vocals on wax.

Recorded in New York in late 1928.
