Ringo Starr and Fats Waller in Liverpool

One rarely thinks of Fats Waller and Ringo Starr in the same proximity. But Ringo's first solo album had a cover of this wonderful song by Fats and this is the sheet music. I had long been fascinated by the building on the front- The Empress Pub. When I visited Liverpool, we found a local who knew where it was (the Pub, not Liverpool). That's me in the doorway ala Mr. Starkey, M.B.E. (Photo by Rob Conlin)
