According to the sleeve-notes of "The Home Recordings," this number was recorded in Perugia Way, Bel Air; the book, "A Life In Music," however, gives Monovale Drive, Hollywood, as the recording location. "Make Believe" was written for the musical "Showboat," which was based on the Edna Ferber novel of the same name, and was premiered in 1927 as a Ziegfeld production. The artist responsible for the original recording is a bit of a toss-up, really, as at least two orchestras recorded the number on the same day, 27 January 1928. In addition to The Paul Whiteman Orchestra, Ben Bernie and His Hotel Roosevelt Orchestra (vocal chorus by Scrappy Lambert) also waxed lyrical. Bernie's recording was released as a single on Brunswick 3808. The Whiteman version was released on Victor 25249, but take care, for Whiteman had already released a tune titled "Make Believe" in 1921 (Victor 18742), but this was a completely different number.
