Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My Pretty Quadroon
I have obtained a copy of the sheet music similar to that described by Jim Dixon, above. By Fred Howard and Nat Vincent, Arranged by Freeman High. Copyright assigned 1930 to Vincent-Howard-Preeman, Ltd.; Copyright 1930 by Morse M. Preeman, Los Angeles, Cal. Copy is published in Los Angeles. On the cover is a silhouette of a girl in a hoop skirt and a photograph of Val Valente, "Roof Garden Cafe."
Note that arranger, performer and place of publication differ from those on the sheet music listed by Jim Dixon.
Later today I will post and compare the lyrics with the song as done by the "Sons of the Pioneers."
