Because of copyright problems in Europe with the melody used for "Tonight Is So Right For Love", the words originally written for that song were adapted to fit the similar melody of Opus 325 of "Geschichten aus dem Wienerwald" ("Tales From The Vienna Woods") by Johann Strauss, written in 1868.
The recording by the Metropolitan Orchestra was made for Victor on 17 January, 1901 and was probably issued in 1902—unclear records seem to indicate that 100 copies of the 7-inch disc were received from the pressing plant that year. Records are equally unclear as to where the recording was made, though this was likely to have been at the Johnson Factory Building, Camden, studio. In any case, the number was released on Victor A-396, a 7-inch single-sided pressing.
The Metropolitan Orchestra was active in the recording studio from June 1900 until May 1906, with its peak ending in July 1903.
