What Islands?

by Brad Kay

Does anyone know if the title of the song famously recorded by Bix and the Wolverines is "Susie (of the Islands)" or just plain "Susie"?

The record label says nothing about any "Islands," and I have a vague memory of the original sheet music, which also was island-less both in title and in the lyrics.

BUT: Practically every reference to this title on the internet DOES include these mysterious islands.

What's the truth? Albert? Anybody?
