Watch: Thanks For The Boogie Ride

Today's Soundie is the classic "Thanks For The Boogie Ride" by Gene Krupa.  This 1942 release features Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge on vocals.

As far as Soundies go, the producers appear to have spent some time on this one.  The same set was used for another classic Krupa Soundie, "Let Me Off Uptown".  The camera work is very good and manages to capture the high energy that Krupa performances often gave off.

This Soundie also contains a nice little dance scene that includes Anita O'Day and a motorcycle cop.  Also, the Roy Eldridge solo is fantastic.
