Stanley Lupino & Elsie Carlisle – “Just One More” (1932)

“Just One More” is the flip side of “I Don’t Want to Go to Bed” and is another Stanley Lupino/Noel Gay collaboration for the musical comedy Sleepless Nights. This Decca recording has Stanley Lupino singing a duet with Elsie Carlisle (who did not appear in the movie) and involves some remarkable spoken banter:

– “Hello, Elsie! How did you get on this side of the record?”
– “I came through the hole in the label!”

– “Wonderful! Lovely! Gorgeous!”
– “To what are you referring?”
– “You don’t mean that.”
– “I do!”
– “Oh, you haven’t seen me in the morning!”
– “Oh, may I???
“Oh, Mr. Lupino!”

– “I love that curl on the back of your neck.”
– “Do you?”
– “Yes. May I kiss it?”
– “Oh, no.”
– “Ah, yes!
– “Oh, no!”
– “Ah, yes!”
– “Oh, no…”
– “I shall!”
– “You have!

There is a sound at end of the recording that is especially precious.  Listen for it, and Happy New Year!
