The film features Ben Bernie conducting his band All The Lads, and features pianist Oscar Levant and saxophonist Jack Pettis.

- "Tell Her in the Springtime"
- "Sweet Georgia Brown"

The film was produced by DeForest at his studio in New York City in late 1924 or early 1925, since some of the songs featured were not published until 1924.
