Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby

Here are two great renditions of the classic song. Both came out in 1944 and are decidedly different. I love 'em both!

Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters

Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five
(Jordan co-wrote the song and had the first hit record with it.)


  1. Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby- I LOVE this song. My favorite version is by Dinah Washington on the Ultra Lounge CD: Wild Cool & Swingin' Too. A compilation with performers such as Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, Eydie Gorme, and others. Fantastic collection if you love lounge music!

  2. Believe it or not, Huey Lewis did a version of this too for some movie. I've been hoping someone would post it on YouTube, but so far no one has. His voice would be great for this song.
