      Hi W J AT ASK,

      Side By Side (Harry Woods, Gus Kahn) was published and first recorded in 1927. It was a popular hit, with a number of early covers. The list of recordings provided by SecondHandSongs.com suggests that interest in the song may have been revived in the late 1950s, with at least two dozen recordings being released during the years 1958 to 1968. See my 1927 standards and hits page. — doc

      Nick Lucas performed the song in a 1944 Soundie
