Subject: RE: Eddystone Light & Parodies
Hmmm. Intersting. The problem with coming back to a thread 4 years old is you forget where you got your info from. I've checked my Lloyd sheet lists on the back of various sheet music and it's not listed there, even on the 2 copies of Married to a Mermaid I have. The thread I referred to in my previous post seems to have disappeared from the top of the list. It was certainly printed on broadsides by Sanderson, Such and Fortey at about that time, but that doesn't tell us much. Where did you find the anonymous sheet? I have a vague recollection I got the info from one of those books on Music Hall but which one escapes me now.
I don't think they have the full Lloyd repertoire on the website just as we don't know the full extent of Harry Clifton's, and Kilgarriff is hardly comprehensive, nor does it claim to be. I'll have a quick look through some of my books on Music Hall.
