Russian Lullaby
Composer: Irving Berlin

Russian_Lullaby was performed probably around 150 times by Jerry Garcia groups between 1975 and 1994. Garcia was inspired to record and perform this song by a version on an Oscar Aleman LP.

The song was written at the start of 1927 and probably first performed, by the singer Douglas Stanbury, at the opening of New York's Roxy Theater on March 11, 1927. Russian Lullaby was recorded many times in the following months of 1927 and subsequently became popular with big bands in the 1930's.
