Album Notes
MADE IN AMERICA - VAUDEVILLE SONGS is a tribute to the thousands who traveled the vaudeville circuit of America from the 1880s through the early 1930s. In particular, one family by the Gumm, performed on the boards, the youngest of which became known as the world's greatest entertainer, Judy Garland.

In 1895, Frank Gumm sang the popular songs of the day in Murfreesboro, TN (And the Band Played On). Soon, he left Tennessee to perform in vaudeville (By the Light of the Silvery Moon). Arriving in Superior, Wisconsin, he met a pretty young woman named Ethel Milne and fell in love (Dream Girl). Some months after their marriage, with dreams of success, the couple went on the road with their own vaudeville act, (Made In America; Mary, You're A Little Bit Old Fashioned and Alexanders Ragtime Band).
In time, Frank and Ethel settled down in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. In a few years, their two little girls were performing on stage as well (I Never Had A Mammy). In 1922, the youngest, Frances was born. By the age of two and a half, she was insistent on singing too! (Tie Me To Your Apron Strings Again). Judy's mother Ethel, trained the girls and they had their own singing/dance act as the Gumm Sisters. (When My Sugar Walks Down the Street). At night, Frank Gumm sang the girls to sleep (Danny Boy, Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen).
The Gumm family moved to California in 1926, and on the way Ethel performed a song on stage which always made Baby (Judy) cry, called "I've Been Saving For a Rainy Day." The Gumms had one favorite song that every one of them performed at one time or another (Carolina in the Morning).

THIS CD IS A NEW VERSION OF THE 2002 "MADE IN AMERICA" CD with 8 re-recorded tracks, two new vocalists, one NEWLY DISCOVERED song, and added violin, clarinet and ukulele. During the time the album was recorded, the cast was asked to perform in some original vaudeville houses, which added to their feel for the genre.


BRIAN DE LORENZO hails from Boston. With his wonderful tenor voice, Brian takes the lead in the "Made In America" vaudeville recording. Winner of Talent America's 2001 Performer of the Year Award. Brian has appeared in Boston's A Christmas Carol, with Judy Kuhn in The Bakers's Wife and is well-known in by New York and Boston's cabaret circuit.

JENNIFER ACKERMAN has worked in theatres from Oregon to New York. Jennifer's beautiful voice is not one soon forgotten. She has worked in opera, concerts and musical theatre. Jennifer appeared in with the Made In America - Vaudeville Songs show in New York and New Jersey for over two years.

CD Baby

Need to lighten up? Feel like dancing with the lamp post outside? Then this is the saving grace for you! With clarity and drama, these classic and familiar Vaudeville songs will even get your goldfish whistling. Though this CD is sure to lighten you up like a heavy cream in weak coffee, these folks certainly don't take Vaudeville lightly!

Marie Hegeman

Charming and historically accurate!
Not only charming performances in their own right, the liner notes show that the material was carefully researched and arranged to be as near to a Gumm family performance as we're ever likely to hear. I think Judy herself would be awed and touched by this loving preservation of a nearly-lost moment in vaudeville history!

Hector Coris

Delightful Vocals and Wonderful Old Tunes
Love love love these old tunes and they're given such a fine treatment on this recording. The voices are all gorgeous, with Brian and Erin standing out with such era-specific intonations that I wish I could see them perform this stuff live.

Lisa Arata

I've never seen anything like it--a Vaudeville revival. It's a fun listen. Lots of romatic songs. Very straightforward performance, not much nuance. My favorite track was "Oh Danny Boy." We need songs like that to come back.

Lawrence Schulman

Should not be missed
Although it came out in 2002, I just listened to the CD "Made in America/Vaudeville Songs - A Tribute to the Gumm Family/One Story in 22 Songs" (OC-6137), which is the original cast recording of the New York production. It is excellent and really quite interesting, and I highly recommend it. It contains songs Frank, Ethel and the Gumm Sisters performed in their vaudeville days. Many of the songs, such as Danny Boy, I Will Come Back, You Made Me Love You, Alexander's Ragtime Band, Carolina in the Morning, and When My Sugar Walks Down the Street, Judy performed later in life. Others, either Frank or Ethel performed solo. In listening to Carolina in the Morning sung by Ethel, Frank and the three sisters, one understands better Judy's affection for the song in later years. Of interest too is I Will Come Back. The lyric is about a guy who leaves his wife, and for good. Thus, the lyric:

I will come back when the elephants roost in the trees
I will come back when the birds make love to the bees
I will come back when the sun refuses to shine
And President Coolidge is a cousin of mine

I will come back when the fish walk around on two feet
And promenade up and down on Washington Street
When the snow has turned from white to blue
Then maybe I will come back to you

(Orchestral Break)

Whistler's mother is a sister of mine

(Orchestral Break)

When the snow has turned from white to blue
Then maybe I will come back to you
Yes, maybe I'll come back
Could be I'll be back
Maybe I'll come back to you

In other words, the guy is never coming back. I find it amusing that Judy used this for her closing music on her series. In the first degree, the song's title was meant to say to viewers "see you next week." But in fact, the lyric really says "good-bye, good riddance."

The cast of the show is excellent. The girl who sings Frances Gumm, Sophie Zamchick, has a voice that is eerily similar to Judy's at that age, and the result is enchanting. The man who sings Frank Gumm, Brian De Lorenzo, has a terrific tenor voice that is quite moving. The whole production has a lot of spirit and should not be missed.

Joe Franklin, WBBR Bloomburg Radio

A Fabulous CD
A fabulous CD worthy of it's topic. Beautifully produced. It reminds me of the days when Judy Garland dominated American entertainment.
