Book Description Dover Publications, New York, 1982. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. John Held (illustrator). Covers lightly creased and worn at edges. Illustrated with b/w line drawings. Here is one of the most valued song books - a contagiously uninhibited collection of 132 ballads, blues, vaudeville numbers, drinking songs, cowboy songs, sea chanties, and comedy songs. Compiled in 1927 and 1928 by the eminent Greenwich Villager Frank Shay, early publisher of Edna St Vincent Millay, these songs are suitable for soloists or groups. Over a third of them are here reprinted with music. These are the great songs of the Naughty Nineties and early 20th century, as they were sung in their prime by the celebrated performers of the day. Many old favourites will be found here with their original introductions and a full complement of verses: The Band Played On, Frankie and Johnnie, The Old Gray Mare, The Face on the Bar-room Floor, etc. But there are also a good many others, equally entertaining, that you might have difficulty locating elsewhere: The Dog-Catcher's Child, The Cannibal Maiden, The Dying Hobo, and that classic of premonition, Don't Go In Them Lions' Cage Tonight, Mother. You will find such songs of pre-Beatnik Bohemia as Down in Dear Old Greenwich Village, and In Bohemia Hall. There are songs from all parts of America, England, France, Australia; refurbished editions of ancient ballads; cockney songs; songs about dope fiends, doughboys, drunkards, brakemen, boxers, burglars, sinners, sailors and the Salvation Army!.
