Shaking the Blues Away (words and music by Irving Berlin, 1927)

“Shaking the Blues Away”, words and music by Irving Berlin (1927), introduced by Ruth Etting in the stage revue Ziegfeld Follies of 1927. The song was #4 in the charts in 1927 and revived by Ann Miller in Easter Parade (1948). The illustration was probably of Ruth Etting even though she is not mentioned. Eddie Cantor was the established star, so he is mentioned, even though it wasn’t his song.
