I try to steer clear of any overtly self-promotional blog posts, but I wanted to make an exception here to share some new pieces of vintage tin-pan alley sheet music I picked up on eBay recently. The package contains eleven pieces, nine of which I plan to restore and make available on the site sometime soon. Two of them won't be restored and released because they're not very special. (One of them has next to no color, and the other one is, in my opinion, not very well-designed.)
Here's a list of the nine covers that I plan on making available. (Please be aware, for legal reasons, some of these may not be available in your country if you live outside the United States):
- Odds and Ends of 1917
- Going Up (1917)
- A Modern Eve (1912)
- Babes in Toyland (1903)
- Good-Bye, Little Girl of My Dreams (1912)
- Something Seems Tingle-Ingleing (From High Jinks, 1913)
- My Croony Melody (1914)
- There's a Girl in Havana (1911)
- Lucia, My Italian Maid (1906)
The whole thing cost me $14.77, which was a very good investment, all things considered. (Not counting the two aforementioned, the price per unit is calculated at $1.64. Not bad at all!!)
I've been really busy with the blog, social media, and many other things, but what I'm hoping is that I can start working on these sometime in the spring or summer.
In the meantime, if you haven't watched it yet, I posted an unboxing video on YouTube, which is embedded above for your viewing pleasure.
I'll be back on Friday with the fourth installment in my series of Top 10 Oz Illustrations, and I might find the time to do another post tomorrow. Until then, I hope you have a good day.
