The Trumpeteers release of this number reached number 8 in the R&B charts. The lead singer, Joseph Armstrong, was also a member of the Golden Gate Quartet. However, it seems likely that the original recording was made by the Coleman Brothers on the Regis label, as the A-side of record number 108 (S-1073-S). The Coleman Brothers were a truly family group, consisting of brothers Russell, Lander, Wallace, Melvin, and Everettt, along with Danny Evans. Their recording of "Milky White Way" (backed with "We'll Understand") was probably released on Regis, though some sources indicate that the release was prevented by owner of Regis, Irving Berman. The first mention of Regis dates from February 1943 (Billboard) and in 1945 the operation moved from Newark, New Jersey, to New York City, changing its name to Manor Records. The recording was then released on Manor in 1948. The Coleman Brothers also released tracks on Decca before forming their own Coleman label in 1948.
