Thread Name: Texas Fiddle Tunes, 1900
Subject: RE: Texas Fiddle Tunes, 1900
Of course tune titles are migratory and somewhat unpredictable. But they aren't totally anarchic: many stick.

The interesting question is why those now well-known tunes don't appear on the lists under any recognizable title.

Suggestion: they just weren't much played (if played at all) in Texas or Mississippi in 1900.
