Lee Morse: T’Aint No Sin to Take Off Your Skin

lee_portrait[1]

Today is the birthday of Star of Vaudeville #393: Lee Morse (for the full skinny on this quirky singer go here). In honor of the day we present her recording of the irresistible tune “T’Aint No Sin (To Take Off Your Skin and Dance Around in Your Bones)” written by the great Edgar Leslie, and clearly inspired by the acquisition of a rhyming dictionary.

To find out more about the variety arts past and present, consult No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous, available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and wherever nutty books are sold. And don’t miss Chain of Fools: Silent Comedy and Its Legacies from Nickelodeons to Youtube, to be released by Bear Manor Media in 2013.
