Walkin’ My Baby Back Home (m. Fred Ahlert, w. Roy Turk)


Nick Lucas-The Crooning Troubadour-1930s

Nick Lucas – 1931


Lucas must have liked the song because he was still doing it in 1951


The Charleston Chasers — recorded 1930 or ’31, says the video provider


Lee Morse – recorded on 20 February 1931; issued on Columbia 2417-D, b/w “I’ve Got Five Dollars”


Louis Armstrong and his Orchestra – recorded in Chicago on 20 April 1931

Louis Armstrong, t, v, ldr, speech / Zilmer Randolph, t / Preston Jackson, tb / Lester Boone, cl, as / George James, cl, ss, as / Alber t Washington, cl, ts / Charlie Alexander, p, speech / Mike McKendrick, bj, g / John Lindsay, sb / Tubby Hall, d



Annette Hanshaw – 1931


Tom Barratt — issued on “Regal no.G21107,” according to the video provider, though 45Worlds.com indicates that a 78 rpm single by Tom Barratt was issued in July 1931 on (UK) Regal MR 348, b/w “Fall in Love With Me”


Jo Stafford with Paul Weston and his Orchestra – 1945


Nat King Cole had a hit with a 1951 recording. But this one sounds like late 50s to me.

    I just discovered the sheet music recorded by Lonnie Ray and words & music by Roy Turk and Fred E. Ahlert in a collection from an estate that I purchased and am trying to find out if there’s any collection value.

    Probably not worth much, unless he signed it, or it’s a rare version. In a quick Google search I found many for sale at eBay, Amazon, etc., with prices ranging from $1.44 (+ shipping) to $9.99 (free shipping).
