Celery Stalks At Midnight (Harris-Bradley) by Will Bradley & his Orchestra, featuring Ray McKinley
This was the actual hit. It may not sound quite like the version that you’ve heard most frequently over the years as Columbia/Sony has for decades been reissuing on LP and CD an alternate take recorded at the same Bradley session, identifiable by different solos (and extra added reverb). The flipside “Down The Road A Piece” is also included in the 1940 collection.
