Baby Face Original

A 1920s Baby Face Original

In the 1920s, songwriter Harry Akst wrote the music for “Baby Face” and vaudeville performer and songwriter Benny Davis wrote the lyrics. They published the song in 1926. In 1958, Little Richard, one of the most influential people in popular music and culture for seven decades, released a rock ‘n’ roll version of “Baby Face” that became his highest charting single in the UK. However Jan Garber and his orchestra recorded the “Baby Face” original back in 1926. Since that time, the song has been a standard, with versions that range from vaudeville to disco, released by a variety of artists.
