I wonder if any jazz or novelty-song aficionados “out there” have ever heard a song whose origin and artist I’ve been wondering about for years:

As a kid, I enjoyed the “novelty” aspect of it and just tolerated the music, or ignored it. Many years later, though, I heard the song again, and was really enjoying the (jazzy, perhaps R&B;or swing) music when all of a sudden I recognized it as the knee-slapping song of my youth.

The “hook” of this song: At the end of each verse, the band comes to a stop, and somebody belches.

Can anybody tell me who did that song? I would love to get the CD. You can email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

It is nice to hear novelty songs every now and then. Great old songs really never die.
