Another winning Vitaphone short from Warner where we get to hear some of the hit music from back in the day. This time out Larry Clinton is leading his orchestra through a list of hits including "Powerhouse", "Get Happy" and "You Took Advantage of Me". It was my first time hearing these songs but there wasn't any problem getting into their vibe as Clinton delivers a pretty good performance. I prefer this music to be a little faster but I still enjoyed the more laid back approach by Clinton. My favorite song of the group was probably "Get Happy" as it also featured The Six Philharmonicas, which was a pretty rocking little group that had some great harmonica work. Bea Wain does the vocal work on "Dancing in the Dark" and manages to be quite catchy as well.
