Description

Originally recorded in 1936 as "Weed Smoker's Dream" by The Harlem Hamfats, the drug references were significantly toned down for Lil Green's 1941 update "Why Don't You Do Right." Since then the song has become a jazz standard, perhaps reaching a peak of fame with its inclusion in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). Paired here are two smoldering, female vocal takes on the song, both from the late '50s R&B era so cherished by popcorn collectors and DJs.
