Thread Name: Lyr Req: Turkish Delight (from Arthur Godfrey)
Subject: RE: Arthur Godfrey song about Solomon
Cole Porter's comedy number "Solomon" was introduced in the show Nymph Errant in 1933. It was much covered, added to and parodied. Perhaps this was the source for Arthur Godfrey's recording?

The late Elisabeth Welch also recorded it. It is on her CDs "Live in New York" and "In Concert" both of which are still available.
