Clifton Avon "Cliff" Edwards (June 14, 1895 – July 17, 1971), nicknamed "Ukulele Ike", was an American musician, singer, actor and voice actor, who enjoyed considerable popularity in the 1920s and early 1930s, specializing in jazzy renditions of pop standards and novelty tunes. He had a number-one hit with "Singin' in the Rain" in 1929.

Ukulele Ike Sings Again. He is backed by a dixieland band on the album. The songs are rerecordings of songs he recorded back in the 1920s. He sings well here, but alas his ukelele doesn't appear on very many of the songs. I should mention that some of the songs are played back to back as part of a medley. The extra track is a nice surprise as it does feature the ukulele for which Edwards nearly singlehandedly created the craze in the 20's. Not nearly enough of that on this recording. Cliff Edwards is known in Disney circles as the voice of Jiminy Cricket from the Walt Disney Studios movie "Pinnochio". The song "When yYou Wish Upon a Star" that he sang won an Academy Award (R). A Disney studios staff composer named George Bruns wrote songs for many Disney movies, TV shows, and more.

Cliff Ukelele Ike Edwards photographed by George Hurrell c. 1931. I’m not sure if Ukelele Ike was just trying to be funny by singing such a dark song in such an upbeat, peppy way. So next time you hear When You Wish Upon a Star, remember that its singer was a bitter showbiz sensation who ultimately saw the futility of chasing money when he was rich, and died broke and miserable. Some folks hustle day and night for no good reason at all. Grabbing money left and right for no good reason at all. For a million we all try When we get it, me-oh-my We just lay right down and die For no good reason at all.
