Sing Us One of the Old Songs by Michael Kilgarriff
Book DescriptionMichael Kilgarriff's compilation of some 20,000 popular song titles, 1860-1920, provides for the first time in one volume answers to the questions which excite Music Hall and popular song enthusiasts more than anything in life: who wrote what and when, and who sang it? The criteria for a song's inclusion are popularity, topicality, and significance in the career of its singer. Also included are titles still remembered and performed, for it is at today's Music Hall performers and producers that these checklists are primarily aimed. The non-active enthusiast and the casual enquirer will also find much of value herein, if only because the information offered is not readily available elsewhere. Many specialist libraries and collections are not open to the public. The importance of Sing Us One of the Old Songs is to bring much previously inaccessible material within general reach.
