Thought I’d do some songs about being grateful, it being Thanksgiving week and all. First up is this Irving Berlin classic, written for the 1942 movie Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and Marjorie Reynolds. It was recorded on the album Music From Holiday Inn, released the same year. Albums then were collections of 78 RPM records, each record having its own sleeve; the sleeves were bound together into an actual book that had a hard cover. The long-playing record was still a brand-new concept. (I’m just a font of useless knowledge, aren’t I?) Bing is accompanied by his brother Bob’s orchestra.
