Louise Brooks - Lulu on My Mind

Here is a splendid Louise Brooks tribute video which I just ran across on YouTube. I was a little late to notice, as more than 17,000 others had viewed it before me. All-in-all, nicely done, though one of the very last still images is not of the actress. Maybe Colleen Moore or someone else.

The music is "Diga Diga Do," recorded in 1928 by Duke Ellington and his Orchestra, with vocal by Irving Mills. For those who like to listen to music via their computer, and for those who like vintage jazz and vocal music, be sure and check out the Louise Brooks Society online radio station, RadioLulu - streaming since 2002 ::

  1. Pretty sure the vocals on 'Diga Diga Do' are the Mills Brothers ... not Irving Mills. ~ fyi
