Song of the Week: A Proper Cup of Coffee

A song from the pens of the brilliant and prolific songwriting team of R.P. Weston (lyrics) and Bert Lee (music) (who else could ever rhyme “Persia” with “curse ya”?), A Proper Cup of Coffee was, to my knowledge, first performed and recorded by Ernie Mayne in 1926.

Mayne’s recording seems unfortunately not to be published online, so I’m pleased to offer this equally wonderful recording by Scovell and Wheldon (1934).
