Political historians have traditionally interpreted the people and events of each presidential era by studying books, periodicals, letters, diaries and speeches. One source of printed material that has not received much scholarly attention is published music, much of which has been all but lost in the archives of libraries and museums. These two volumes of Presidential Sheet Music present an exhaustive listing of presidential-related music in all printed forms, with information on each piece.

About the Author:

Danny O. Crew has been collecting political memorabilia since 1975, specializing in political music. His personal collection exceeds 11,000 pieces. Two-thirds of the music documented in this catalogue is from his personal collection. He has written a number of articles on the subject and has been featured on ABCs Good Morning America. He is also the author of American Political Music (2006), Ku Klux Klan Sheet Music (2003) and Suffragist Sheet Music (2002). He currently serves as City Manager for the City of Miami Gardens, Florida.

From Booklist:

Who would have thought there were so many songs written about or dedicated to Grover Cleveland, or George B. McClellan, the man who ran against Lincoln in 1864? On the other hand, there are just two (so far) associated with George H. W. Bush: "President George Bush March" and "Let's Thank Our Great First Lady." How do we know? Because it's all here, arranged by president or candidate, with complete publication details. RBB

Book Description McFarland & Co Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Political historians have traditionally interpreted the people and events of each presidential era by studying books, periodicals, letters, diaries and speeches. One source of printed material that has not received much scholarly attention is published music, much of which has been all but lost in the archives of libraries and museums. The traditional librarianly cataloguing of music has ignored important aspects such as lyrical content and cover art, making it impossible to comprehensively locate and study items by subject matter. "Presidential Sheet Music" presents an exhaustive listing of presidential-related music in all printed forms, and provides information on each piece. Thus may we expand our understanding of political communication and discourse throughout American history. A sizable Introduction discusses matters from the publication in 1768 of "The Liberty Song" (which formally made music an instrument of political expression in America) to the few 1980s and 1990s presidential songs and marches. There are also helpful appendices which list music by titles, composers, publishers, and candidates. Seller Inventory # AAN9780786443253
